At the same time some plants favour the spring season. Therefore, gardeners are requested to make their harvesting decisions after studying the season. The soil in your garden also plays a major role in affecting the results of your harvest. Have a proper mix of soil and keep its nutrient content high and adequate. Having a healthy soil is a big bonus.

• Irrigation method - Once you are done with the first three issues of seed, soil and season, the next big thing is the irrigation method.
