So You Want To Have A Better Garden

By Betty Grady

Growing a fantastic garden is something that anybody can learn to do. Even if you haven’t ever had very good luck with plants before, if you follow the right gardening tips, you can create a thriving garden-even if you don’t have a lot of space for growing things where you live. Even people with small patios or no yard space at all. Some people are able to create thriving gardens completely indoors! If you are interested in learning more about how to grow, keep and care for plants, keep reading. This article has the gardening tips that you have been looking for.

Start small. If you have never grown a garden before, start with a single plant or type of plant in a small space. This will help you gain practical experience in things like soil tending and plant care. If you have success with that single plant or small batch of plants, you can move on to bigger and more extensive gardening techniques. Many beginning gardeners try to take on too much too quickly and then get discouraged when they don’t have a yard full of thriving plant life in just a few days or weeks. Starting slowly and working your way up is the best way to learn how to be a better gardener.

Learn to tell the difference between weeds and the plants you want to grow. Many beginning gardeners assume that weeds look a lot different than the plants they want to grow. The truth is that, often, the weeds look very similar to the plants in a garden. This means that you could inadvertently yank up half of your garden without realizing it. Learn to identify the weeds before you begin planting. This will save you a lot of heartache later on.

Instead of pesticides use aphids. Using pesticides on your plants is terrible for the environment. It can also be terrible for your health if you are growing fruit, vegetables, herbs or spices. The best way to combat plant eating pests is to let some ladybugs take up residence in your garden. The ladybugs won’t do any damage to your plants because they eat the pests that would otherwise wreak havoc on your garden. Ladybugs and other pest eaters can be great for your garden. Ladybugs are good for the environment. You won’t accidentally ingest them. And they keep your garden pest free!

Garden often is thought to be complicated. The truth is that anybody can be a gardener. Don’t let yourself feel scared by the images of gardens you see on television or in gardening books and magazines. Whether or not you are ready to believe it, you really can learn how to grow gardens just like the ones you daydream about. Even if you’ve never had any luck growing plants before, you could still learn how to become an award winning gardener over the course of just a few seasons of planting. Have fun! You’ll get to where you wan to go!
