Green manures for fallow land and / or empty spaces in the garden.
Green manures not only look nicer, they also improve the quality of the soil, combat nematodes and suppress weeds. The quality of the soil is improved by green manures, for example by increasing the organic matter content and the nitrogen content.
What is green manure?
Green manure is the cultivation of crops on a piece of land and then plowing or mulching it. This is done to increase the percentage of organic matter and the nitrogen content in the soil. Part of that organic matter is then converted into humus in the soil and benefits the next crop that is grown on the same soil.
