Hello Hello Plants

It is good to have a positive attitude when you garden, but you need to also focus on what needs to be accomplished. Research is very important prior to planting a garden so that you know what mistakes to avoid as you go along. Don't just start gardening and think it will all turn out well. If you're not sure where the best place to plant something is, how much water it needs, how much space and other factors, make sure you find out.

Plants need a certain amount of space to remain healthy. When you are deciding which plants you want to grow, find out how much room each variety requires so you can choose a proper location. It's very easy to plant small plants too close together. You have to take into consideration how large the plants will be when they start to produce. One of the situations that can occur when plants are crowded is that the roots of the different plants become entangled. When the area for your garden is small, it's wise to only plant a few different varieties of plants or, alternatively, plant them in containers. It's easy to find out how much room your plants will need. This information is listed on the seed packets or, if you buy plants already started, you can ask the helpful people at the garden center. One frequent mistake beginning gardeners fall victim to, is not burying the seed deep enough. This simple thing can make all the difference as to whether of not your garden will be a success. The finest way to insure proper growth for you plants lie simply with the depth at which they are planted, no matter how fine your soil and compost are. Your young seed will be provided nutrients from the soil when it is planted correctly. Yet if you plant it too deeply, it may not get enough light or may get drenched by underground water. When your environment is on the dry side you will be wise to plant your seeds a little further down than normal. The bigger the actual seed is; the further down it will need to go. Always go by the recommended planting instructions when they are available.

A lot of new gardeners choose their plants based on emotion, such as choosing it for the appearance or maybe the taste and unfortunately they do not take into consideration where they live and if it can actually grow there. If you live up North, you might as well not even think about having your own orange or avocado plant or tree. The same is true for making attempts of growing cacti or tropical plants in northern locations. There are ways to do this, such as setting up a hothouse, but if you are a new gardener and want to make your job as easy as possible, stick to plants that will thrive naturally in your area. If you are buying seeds in the United States, you can refer to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone, which makes it clear which plants can grow easily in which regions. You can evade a lot of gaffes in the garden if you understand them. Lack of research prior to planting is often the reason that inexperienced gardeners make mistakes. Quite often, you can find instructions for seeds on the back of the packet. As long as you ask questions when you do not know something, you will seldom make mistakes.
