Starting A Vegetable Garden
There is a wide variety of vegetables to grow in Canada. Choose varieties that are good for your zone and that you like to eat.
Plan the vegetable garden layout on graph paper and consult seed packets for planting information (such as spacing, spread and height). Plant tall crops along the northern edge to avoid shading lower-growing plants.
Virtually any vegetable can be grown in containers. Growing in containers increases one’s ability to grow vegetables and herbs, as containers can be placed in locations where gardening is not typically possible such as on balconies and porches or adjacent to your driveway.
They can be used in shady and sunny areas around your house that don’t have adequate quality soil for growing.
