It happens in everyone’s life, where they look at an empty patch of dirt and decide that some flowers or a tomato plant would look good there. Planting a garden can be very fun and rewarding, but it’s not as simple as planting some seeds, watering them, and calling it a day. It requires research, hard work, and some trial and error before you earn a green thumb.
First, look at what exactly you want to plant. Do you want to plant a tree, a vegetable garden, or just a nice bouquet of flowers to make the yard look prettier? Each one of those planting categories requires different levels of light, water, and space to grow, so settle on one first. Next, pick a plant in that category.
If you want to grow herbs for example, then settle on a few common ones. Basil, thyme, and cilantro are good examples. Then research their requirements and make sure that your gardening space fits them. If they need full sun and you are planting them in the shade, you’ll have a problem. Your gardening space will have its own properties, so make sure to take it into account.
With the research done, then you can go to a local wholesale nursery near me and start picking out the plants. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from the experienced gardeners, because it’s the only way you’ll succeed. They might recommend things to avoid, things to buy, and things to keep in mind. You can walk out of the nursey with the plants for now, and later you’ll be able to buy mulch, bug repellent, and other add-ons to help with the growth.
It’ll take some trial and error to grow your first garden and keep it maintained, but when you see what you planted start to sprout, it’ll be worth it.
