What you plant is decided by where you reside. Take a peek at the traits of your garden space—from sun exposure to the climate.

Test the Soil

To get a complete reading of the soil’s nutrient and pH levels, send one sample to your cooperative extension or local nursery.

Begin With “Easy” Plants

Growing veggies includes a fun intro to gardening. Veggies do not take as long to grow as other plants, so if you make an error you will not have taken up as much time.

Make a Plan

To avoid crowding, it’s suggested to first research your plants so you know precisely how big they’ll grow and how to accordingly space them out.

Set up a Calendar…

or possess a general idea of your large gardening activities every season. In the springtime, start to fertilize all plants and do this every 6 – 8 weeks all throughout the growing season, which typically ends in the autumn. Usually, it is too warm to plant within the summertime. If you want to add bulbs or new plants for the following year, add them during autumn, yet you also can plant in spring. Winter is when you cut back roses and woody plants, generally prior to the first frost.

Carefully Water

Give an ample and consistent quantity of water. ‘Consistent’ will mean you are doing it on a routine basis and ‘ample’ will mean enough, which will vary from one plant to another.

Keep the Good Work Up!

Be Patient

Gardening is a process. It won’t happen in one day-it’ll take time.
