Gardening Tips for New Gardeners

By author On October 5, 2010 Under Uncategorized

Choosing among all of the gardening tips and tricks out there can be difficult. So much of the information out there is conflicting that sorting through it all can be very time consuming. Remember, there is more to growing plants than dropping some seeds in some dirt and pouring some water over them. Gardening takes attention. You need to put in some work and time. You work at growing your various flowers and plants you will learn that in spite of the work involved, gardening can be really rewarding. Here are some hints to help you grow the garden you’ve always dreamed of having. In case you’re interested, an excellent way to eat those nutritious vegetables is making green smoothies with a Vita-Mix blender. The Vita Mix 5200 is our favorite.

Tomato plants are the most popular fruit plant for beginning gardeners. These plants are easy to plant and to take care of. There are very few places that a tomato plant will not grow. Tomatoes will grow in just about every kind of garden. These plants are so hardy you can plant them in a container and they’ll still grow. Most tomato plants don’t require much attention. Tomatoes are great for beginning gardeners because they can literally eat the fruits of their labors. You can literally eat the fruits of your labor (pardon the pun) when you grow tomatoes in your garden.

Before you plant your seedlings or cuttings draw a map of the garden you want to grow. Put your map on paper and then use strings on the ground and marketers to plan out where each plant will grow. This will come in handy later if you want to grow more than one type of plant in your garden. Caring for individual plants will be made a lot easier while they are still growing if you have a map. Lots of plants look alike to amateur gardeners. Your map will help you keep track of what is growing as it starts to sprout. Maps can also help you plan next year’s garden after this year’s growing period is over.

Composting is a fantastic way to keep your growing garden healthy. Compost can be made at home without having to make any special purchases.

Starting your own compost pile is simple. A compost pile can be built from things like grass clippings, bedding from a hamster cage (or any caged pet really), old flower cuttings, dead plants and flowers from your garden, tea bags, egg shells, coffee grounds, fruit and vegetable scraps from meals, fruit and vegetables that have started to sour before you eat them-all of it can be used in a compost pile. Pretty much the only thing you can’t put into a compost pile is meat. You have now grown your own fertilizer to use in your very own garden!

It is easy to get intimidated by the idea of gardening. If you are new to gardening it is easy to talk yourself out of starting this kind of project. Thankfully, all you need is the right guidance and support and before you know it, gardening won’t seem nearly as complex! Believe it or not, if you’re willing to do the work, you could have a great garden before you know it! Last but not least, don’t forget to check out our Vita Mix review!
