Tips On How To Start Your Garden

Posted by Tammy Sons on 17th Aug 2015

Planting a garden is a multi-step process that involves you, the gardener, doing a little bit more than just planting some plants and hoping for the best. In order to get a garden that is going to produce and be useful for you or your family, you need to make sure that you follow each step so that you can get results that will be pleasing to the eye and possibly to the pallette.

Purchase Online

You can get just about any seed or plant you need through an online nursery. Now, you may be thinking that an online nursery can only service some of your needs, but you must remember that many larger plants can be shipped to you intact and seedlings can be used to plant the rest of the garden. Not only does shopping at an online nursery save money but it gives you a much larger selection.

Decide What You're Planting

Not all plants are gardening plants. Sure, some plants are going to work great in a garden, but you need to make sure you've done your homework and you know what is going to work in your garden so that you don't purchase plants that require too much care or don't flourish around other plants.

If you're planting for food, make sure your food and regular plants are separate. You may want to have an herb garden and azaleas. These plants all need to be separated. Also, you may need to plant the food and regular plants differently. Some are meant to look good and some are meant to taste good.

Gardening Plants In Multiple Places

Your garden doesn't have to stand pat in just one place. You could easily have a few mini-gardens all over your house, and all you have to do to get it started is pick a few like plants and put them together. You might have a patch of daisies in one spot, azaleas in another, and gardenias up by the mail box. It's up to you, but you might feel less intimidated when you're planting in small groups as opposed to one huge plot.

Plan For The Weather

The weather that you'll encounter is going to quite vicious at certain times of the year. There are plants that need to be brought inside when it gets cold, and there are other plants that can be left outside during the winter because they will reemerge in the spring. English Ivy plants is also another hardy vine.

Choose carefully. If you don't mind moving plants around as the weather changes, that's fine. If you want a garden that stays outside, then you need to stick to plants that can survive the winter.
