When it comes to starting your garden, it is so important to recognize your growing zone. There is countless information, that can provide you with information on what will thrive in your region. This link, can provide you with some important Gardening 101 basics.
What Do You Like
If I’ve learned anything in my life, you need to like what you do. When it comes to gardening, savor the plants you nurture. When you do, you will accel in making your garden grow.
In my studies, loam has been determined to be a great soil for planting. Loam suppliers are in limited supply. In addition, the shipping costs, can outweigh the gardening 101 start up costs. For that reason, I have developed my own custom blend, made to order.
What is your object? Do you want shrubs, flowers or vegetables? Each facet requires additional studies for your success. That said, one might say:
- Shrubs and flowers are more inclined to be a landscaping approach. This would include the layout of your plantings around your property for enhanced curb appeal to you and others.
- Vegetables will be defined with the harvesting of crops. When planting crops, the placement of your plants will usually be segregated to a certain part of your property.
Usually, you will need plenty of sun. The sun, provides life giving power to you and your plants. Make sure your plants receive, the life-giving light, heat and energy, so they can thrive.
Our custom blend made to order soil, is the gardening 101, starter soil.
When it comes to your gardening success, you should check what pH is best for your plantings. You can test your soil and establish your bench mark. You can then add what is necessary. You can always get some great suggestions from your local nursery.
There are a variety of garden beds available today. You can shop:
- Discount home improvement
- Garage sale
- Thrift stores
I, don’t want to buy new. Why not recycle what is existing. I am a big advocate for the purchase of existing gardening tools and furnishings. You here so much about reducing our carbon footprint, why not use what has already been manufactured, in turn help our Environment, gardening 101.
When it comes to plantings, do you want to start with a seed or seedling.
- Seeds; you start from the very beginning. Plant the seed in the soil and watch it sprout.
- Seedlings: already have sprouted and you transplant them to your garden.
Show the Love
Gardening 101 is an expression of love. You can’t help but get in tune with Mother Nature. As you get your hands dirty, your soul will return to the Earth from which it came. It is so joyful and calming to be at one with Nature. This will truly help you fend off the day to day stress, you experience everyday. Why not give it a try?
Commit & Nurture Your Plants
Decide today, to get started. It doesn’t have to be a large scale project. You don’t have to spend lots of money. Why not give it a try. Turn off the TV. Spend some time in your garden. It can be in a garage, around the home or in the backyard. The fresh air and tending to your plants can provide you with soothing thoughts and tranquility. Go for it, get started and make your garden grow.
As you move forward, take a moment and savor your great work. You made it happen. Your work, from seed, seedling to harvest. Enjoy the colors and growth and greenery you helped bring to life.
