Since you are a new gardener you probably have a lot of ideas about how growing a garden of your very own is supposed to work. As you work at learning how to develop your own garden you will probably encounter lots of conflicting ideas. Learning how to tell the difference between good information and bad information can take a while. Here are some “new gardener” gardening tips to help you get your garden started.
It is a good idea to put together a schedule to follow if you want to grow more than one type of plant. Write down just how often each plant needs to be watered. Write out the number of times you need to add nutrients to each plant’s soil. Put everything into your planner or on your calendar and then check that calendar every day to find out what you need to do. You could even schedule times to weed! This mapping and scheduling will help ensure that your plants grow to be healthy and thriving. When you are a new gardener, writing out a schedule can be incredibly helpful.
Bell peppers make great additions to any garden. These are plants that love the sun and you can grow them in containers or in yard gardens. You won’t need to water them very often. Because these plants originated in arid places that did not get a lot of rainfall bell peppers actually seem to prefer dry soil. People who like to grown their own veggies and fruits love the bell peppers because there are so many different kinds to choose from. Beginning gardeners like to grow bell peppers because they grow and mature at a satisfying rate-it only takes a couple of months for them to ripen enough to be able to feed you! Just keep them under bright sun or grow lights for most of the day, water them once in a while and make sure the soil has lots of nutrients and you should be fine.
Would it surprise you to learn that you do not have to buy seeds if you want to plant a garden? This is most definitely true if your goal is to grow vegetables and fruits. In the case of planting food (vegetables or fruits) usually all you need are a few pieces of whatever it is that you want to grow. Most fruits and vegetables contain seeds within them that you can plant to grow more of that same fruit or vegetable. This is a fabulous way to grow a garden full of your favorite fruits and vegetables without having to deal with a bunch of seed packets (or the cost that goes with them).
Gardening doesn’t have to be hard. Having the right gardening hints can help you become a very successful garden. Sometimes all a person needs to have is the right information to help them grow a good garden. Of course, practicing your gardening skills is also good. Keep working at your garden and it will eventually be quite successful. Even world champion gardeners had to start their first garden at some point. Not one single gardener grew a perfect plant the first time he or she tried gardening.
