Full Sun Project

Step 1: Prep your garden bed by amending soil with Pike Vegetable & Flower Soil and mix at a 50/50 ratio with your native soil. Create 3 rows.

Step 2: Start at the front of the bed and create a bern approximately 3 feet across running lengthwise and create a divot beside it about 2 feet wide.

Step 3: Make a second row by creating another bern 3 feet wide and a divot that is 2 feet wide.

Step 4: Finally, create one more bern for the third row. The bern and divots will allow for access to each row for harvesting and maintenance purposes.

Step 5: Now you're ready to pick your plants. Choose herbs and veggies that you and your family will like to grill and eat.

Step 6: Lay out your plants, giving each one room to grow.

Step 7: Dig a hole twice as wide as each of the root balls and plant each plant sprinkling in Dr. Earth Root Zone.

Step 8: Fill in around each plant with soil and tamp down to firm the soil around the root ball.

Step 9: Water thoroughly.
