Tips for Growing your Plant Parts Garden
Install your Trellis any time before your Cucumbers grow more than a foot. See Trellis Instructions Page for specific materials and details.
Celery requires plenty of water, nutrients, and time. Be sure to give extra of all of these when possible.
Cucumbers may not find their trellis without help. Weave vines along the trellis where you would like them to go.
Broccoli has a short harvest window. Heads will not grow larger across, they will only continue to mature into flowers. if you see broccoli beginning to form, plan to harvest soon.
The only cleaning Nasturtium flowers need is a quick check for bugs living inside. Eat flowers and leaves. Once fruiting, check for Cucumber harvests twice per week.
Cucumbers grow lengthwise first, then fill out in width. Harvest before cucumbers bulge in width.
