Tips to reduce water requirements

We recommend mulching the beds
Experience has shown that by covering the ground, e.g. with Hay or straw, which can reduce evaporation by 80%. If you keep the beds evenly moist, an optimal moist microclimate will be created under the mulch. This not only promotes the growth of the plants, but also reduces water consumption enormously.

It is also recommended to always keep the beds moist , even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time
The drying out of the soil leads to a huge decline in the micro- and macro-organisms in the soil, which over time leads to an infertile soil . Tests have shown that the water content in the entire bed remains longer when the entire bed is watered over a longer period of time than when it is only watered selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured areas in contrast to the large dry volume, they dry out more quickly than if the entire volume of the bed is filled with moisture. Similar to heating in an apartment.

If the beds are not in use, we recommend sowing with green manure.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to reach it again and again.

The lamb's lettuce 'A Grosse Graine De Hollande' is an old annual and fast-growing medicinal and leafy vegetable plant from the Netherlands. Im 16. In the 19th century, lamb's lettuce was grown in monasteries mainly for medicinal purposes, only since the 18th century. Century, people cultivate this variety as food. This vigorously growing field salad variety with large, long, dark green leaves, grows rosette-like, is particularly hardy and enriches the gardener with a generous crop yield.
