If you like to start your seeds indoors before the first signs of spring are in the air, avoid using seed starter pods and plant in a larger container to start. Using a larger container with plenty of soil for your seed will give the plant a real chance to grow without you having to transplant it several times before it can go outside.
A good tip of what to plant in the garden is to plant high-value crops. Value is a subjective term, but plant the things that are most costly to buy, as long as they are suited to the climate. The whole garden does not have to be devoted to this, but if an area is earmarked for this type of crop, it can save money in the coming season when prices are sky high for certain crops.
Think about a color scheme. Your garden design will take shape more smoothly and quickly if you choose a color scheme to work around. Before deciding, take into account any existing plants and such things as the color of the facade of your house. You can choose one color scheme for the entryway planting, and something completely different for a mixed border in the back garden. If you are a beginning gardener, don’t worry about mistakes. If you end up with a garish looking display, you can simply remove certain plants!
Find the crops that grow well in your local climate and the soil in your garden. If you try to force a plant that doesn’t like your weather, you’ll end up putting out a lot of work for very little result. What grows well one year will probably grow well next year too, so plant it again.
If one plants many different things in their garden then they will be rewarded with many different foods that they can now eat. By planting things that will grow well together such as a tomato plant with cucumbers on the ground below the tomato plant can increase the return from one’s garden.
There are several different styles of gardens and they are not all compatible. This means that you should decide the purpose of your garden long before you actually start planting things. If you want a garden simply for beauty you need to plant very different things then if you want a garden for food.
