The Q&A Archives: vegetable gardening

Question: I have planted a garden and my cucumbers, squash and beans (bush) seem to have just done next to nothing. they have come up but I just do not understand why they are not growing. what can I do?

Answer: Veggies need decent soil, warm temperatures and ample water in order to thrive. If your plants are just sitting there, and if the weather has been warm, they must need some nutrients that they are not getting from the soil. Try feeding them with a foliar fertilizer (such as Miracle Gro) or broadcasting some 10-10-10 around each plant and watering it in well. As soon as they get the nutrients they crave, they should grow well for you. Hope you have a bountiful harvest.
