Starting a garden is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Plant fragrant florals or start a vegetable garden, or both and everyone can benefit from getting their hands a little dirty. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Consider What to Plant
Do you want to plant a vegetable garden? An herb garden? A flower garden?
Pick the Best Garden Spot
Almost all vegetables and many types of flowering plants need 6-8 hours of full sun each day. So you need to observe your yard throughout the day to figure out which spots receive full sun versus partial or full shade.
Test and Improve Your Soil
Properly Prepare Your Planting Beds
Loosening the soil in new beds before sowing or planting helps roots to grow more easily and access the water and nutrients they need.
Water at the Right Time
Seedlings should never be allowed to dry out, so water daily. Taper off as the plants get larger. Transplants also need frequent watering (every other day or so) until their roots become established.
