Often the appeal of moving into a house is that the house comes with enough land on which to start a garden. Gardening is a lot of fun and can be very satisfying for the gardener. However, gardening is not as easy as you think, and starting a garden from scratch is even more difficult. Here are some easy tips for starting a garden.
If you live in a cold climate, jalapenos are probably not going to grow well. Look online and find out what will grow well where you live. Once you know which plants will grow properly in your climate, decide which ones you want to grow. If you have your heart set on growing a plant that does not grow well in the weather in your area, consider building a greenhouse. Greenhouses give us the opportunity to grow anything anywhere.
For those who have never had their own garden, starting with something on a small scale may be wise. Try one tomato plant for the year. Plant a small patch of flowers. Not everyone has a green thumb. If you have no talent with plants, there is no reason to dig up your yard and spend a ton of money on seeds or start-ups. If you’ve already grown a garden, you should have no worries about whether or not you can grow plants.
Some plants don’t grow well in the sun. Plants such as spinach, broccoli, beans and many types of flowers grow best in the shade. If you plan on growing only plants that grow in the shade, then dig the whole garden under the shade. However, if you plan to grow plants such as tomatoes you should leave some of the garden in the sun.
No matter what you plan to grow, you can find a way to grow it. Always try to test it out first. Make sure you know what you want to plant before you start digging up any ground. Have fun growing!
