A Beginners’ Guide To Gardening

Being an adult can be quite stressful. But one of my favorite activities in the world helps deal with the stress of modern life. What exactly is this golden tool? It’s none other than gardening. Gardening is one of my favorite activities to do. I started it when I was a teen. Nowadays, you’ll catch me spending my weekends meddling in the soil as I tend to my lovely flowers and herbs. As you can imagine, I have nothing bad to say of the activity, and I don’t think I ever will.

You too may be wanting to get into the hobby and become a seasoned professional like me. Don’t worry, you will be. But where will you start? That’s a question all beginners ask, and I know how this feels. I was overwhelmed with information when I first started but do not fear. I’ve written this article especially for people like you. This will be your much-needed precious guide that will show you the way to a bright gardening future. So, let’s get started.

Weeds Will Be The Bane Of Your Existence

These pesky beings will torment your garden if you’re not careful. Remember to keep in mind how unwanted weeds are. That’s why if you ignore them when they first start growing, you’ll never be able to get rid of them.  You must stay vigilant.

Once you have seen them sprouting their head, get ready to go on assault mode. All you have to do is use a herbicide. All-natural vinegar is a great eco-friendly alternative.

Your Plants Need Sunlight- Or Do They?

Yes, it’s science that all plants need sunlight. We all know how it’s essential for their growth due to a process called photosynthesis. However, not all plants have the same sensitivity or need for sunlight. For example, orchids don’t require much light. So, if you allow them to constantly bathe in the golden hues, you’ll soon be met with a dying plant.

That’s why you should know each specific plant’s name. Once you do, use the internet to find out its sunlight requirements.

What About The Nutrients?

Nothing you or your local gardener can do can help if you don’t provide the proper nutrients for your plants. Make sure to invest in good quality soil and not the soil already in your home before you plant. If not, this would all be a waste as your plant may not grow.

It’s An All Out War!

I love my vegetable garden. I grow magnitudes of fresh foods in it, but this wasn’t always the case. Until recently I had been the victim of insects. These Insects will devour your tasty plants if you’re not careful. That’s why you need to figure out a way to keep them at bay. But how? Try a method of gardening calling square foot gardening- this is where you section off each of the plants by square beds.

With my advice, your garden dream will surely come to life.
