It was, and still is, a huge time-saver (plus back saver) to us! Instead of all hoeing, and digging, and breaking your back at getting the soil ready to for a garden, Lasagna Gardening is a in layers. Layers one by one, such as: straw, peat, dirt, you get it. Then, when your ready to plant, all you must do is make a small indention and walla! its planted!
Just yesterday, my siblings and I had fun planting a few things in small black compartments, and later on we'll plant them into the ground. Gardening takes effort, but nevertheless, its always fun, and can prove to be worth it!
(I will add, that if you are wanting to create a larger garden, you may want to at least prepare the bottom layer of your soil first, then layer the hay, peat etc. on top; as opposed to using $80 worth of bags in soil!)
If you would like to purchase a tropical tree or plant, make sure you keep it in a pot INSIDE during winter and autumn. In the summer, (if its not too hot) and in the spring (as long as the frosts are over with) you may keep it outside to soak up in the sun. A friend of ours gave us an orange tree just last summer, and already its gotten probably four or five inches taller. Water it when the dirt in the pot is dry, and when its large enough that it can produce, you must buy another orange tree so they can pollinate and bear fruit.
Thanks, hoped this helped, and now its time to begin your garden!
~Now its March 20th, and lots of our little seeds that we planted have grown some. Here's some pictures!
This is a little blue spruce that my dad planted last year...to help out with blocking the north winds!!(lol)
