How To Grow And Care For Asian Style Vegetables
The following are some tips that will help you to grow and care for Asian style vegetables:
1) Watering: Make sure that your plants get enough water during the day.
You need to provide them with at least 2 inches of water per week. If they don’t have enough water, then it means that there is something wrong with their drainage system or maybe even a problem with their soil.
2) Light: Provide your plants with light from morning till night.
Do not expose them to direct sunlight during the day time. During the summer months, you can allow your plants to receive indirect sun but only for short periods of time.
3) Soil: Choose a well draining soil mix that does not hold excess moisture and do not use any chemical fertilizers on your garden.
Use organic fertilizer such as composted manure, chicken manure or worm castings when possible.
4) Fertilizer: Feed your plants with a balanced fertilizer once every two weeks.
Keep in mind that you must use a liquid form of fertilizer because powdery mildew can affect your plants if used as a granular product. Also, make sure that the amount of fertilizer given to each plant is sufficient so that they do not become overfed.
5) Pests: Your Asian veggies are prone to aphids, whiteflies and spider mites.
aphids are very tiny and can be seen on the leaves while the other two are very small as well but they both can be found among the filamentous webs on the lower surface of the leaves.
These are just some of the tips that you need to remember if you want to have a good harvest of Asian vegetables.
You need to know how to grow and care for Asian style vegetables when you want to make sure that you can get good harvest from your garden.
