Intercropping and succession are valuable techniques to improve efficiency and productivity. Rather than putting different kinds of veggies in separate areas, intercropping groups different crops together. Care must be taken to ensure the plants do not compete for the same resources, particularly space and light. The most common example of intercropping is with what’s termed the “Three Sisters”: beans, squash, and corn. They occupy different spaces above ground and their roots systems are complementary below ground.
Fertilizer can be amended into the soil, spread across the surface of the soil, or dissolved in water. Water-soluble fertilizers are poured around the base of a plant or sprayed on its leaves (foliar feeding). Fertilizers contain essential nutrients for plant growth. Small space gardens must fertilize to maximize growth. This is especially true in containers and hanging baskets that often lose nutrients through water runoff. Fertilizers are available in dry granular and liquid forms. Some are fast acting to give an immediate boost.
