Review:

Alfred H. Krautter, the owner of Sprainbrook Nursery in Scarsdale, N.Y., knows a thing or two about gardening. His five-acre all-organic nursery has been open since 1944 and he has been studying the virtues of gardening for what he says seems like “a lifetime.”

His new book, 12 Steps to Natural Gardening, details how to move from chemical to organic gardening.For residents looking to cultivate their green thumbs this season, Mr. Krautter shared five tips with The Press about everything from how to choose the right plants to how to deal with the unseasonably warm spring.With the weather warming up ahead of schedule, Mr. Krautter said it’s important to turn on outside water, start feeding plants and get veggies and flowers into the ground.For those who don’t have sprawling back yards but want to grow vegetables, raised beds are a great option. To build a raised bed, buy cedar or non-pressure-treated wood (other types of wood will leech chemicals into the soil). Place the wood no more than six feet apart and fill with organic soil. Raised beds yield more produce and are easy to maintain.In small yards, it may be necessary to compose near your flowers and vegetables. Plant flowers in front to camouflage unattractive compost heaps.For terrace gardening (planting in pots) make sure to use organic soil and water often.Do your research by walking around. Mr. Krautter said the best way to figure out which plants you like and which ones survive best in this climate is to check out other gardens.--The Riverdale PressA step-by-step guide to growing inch-by-inchMarch 28, 2012
