Article by Lucky Awesome
Have you always wanted to plant your own garden but aren’t sure how to start it? How many times have you brought home flowers from a florist or store and thought “I wish I could grow my own flowers”? Have you ever purchased fruit or vegetables and thought “I should grow my own; it would be so much cheaper and probably taste better”? How often do you think about growing your own herb garden to save money? Have you ever looked around your home and wondered where your garden would be placed? Here is news that should make you happy: you can grow your own garden just about anywhere you want, even in your living room! Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Look at your current space with a critical eye. If you don’t have very much space outdoors for gardening you are just going to have to settle for an indoor garden and the plants that you can grow inside until you find some place that is better for outdoor gardening. If your home does have a yard you will need to figure out how much of that yard you are going to set aside for your new garden. The amount of space you have for your new garden will help you decide exactly what you can grow and how extensive your brand new garden will eventually be. A good example of this is people who try to grow their own fruit and vegetables inside when indoor gardens are not really suited for such things. Most of gardening involves following a routine. As time goes on you’ll figure out a routine and you’ll just know what you need to do in your garden each day. You will learn when to do the weeding, how to check to make sure the garden is not drying out, when to add nutrients and when to add compost to your garden. Let yourself figure out a routine and then all you have to do is follow it. The reason many new gardeners accidentally kill their gardens is because they get bored and they either stop caring about or they don’t realize just how much work needs to be done to keep their gardens alive.
Work the ground of your garden before you start planting. You might not believe this but your garden probably won’t grow if all you do is put some seeds in the dirt and hope that they grow. You need to prepare the ground where you will be planting ahead of time. Clear out the debris like rocks. Till the ground so that there is oxygen moving freely through it. Container and indoor gardens will also need some preparation work before planting can be done.
Planting a garden that is your own is quite exciting! You might even be starting to imagine what the garden will look like when everything has started blooming. Of course, before you can get to your dreams, you need to put in some work. You need to take specific steps to make sure that your dream comes true. When you do your own prep work, keep up with gardening trends, follow expert garden tips and pay attention you will be able to make sure that the garden you get matches the garden in your mind.
