What a garden needs is garden designing and planting plans. For example, if you are going to plant flowers, be sure that the ground is relatively level.
Now we know what a garden needs, but the next thing we need to do is figure out what a suitable place for each type of flower is. Flower gardening can be a frustrating process in that it often requires some time and effort, especially if you are trying to fill a lot of space. When you really look at it, flowers are not all that difficult to grow and some of the hardest plants to find seeds for.
One of the first things you should do is make a list of what type of plants you want to grow in your garden. Plants can range from fruits to vegetables. Fruit gardens are going to require larger containers, rather than pots, to keep the fruit happy. If you have your own garden or have some water nearby, you can always grow some fruit trees.
Vegetables will thrive in a small pot on a window sill, but they will do much better in a very sunny spot on the lawn or the patio. With many types of vegetables, the size of the pot should be the same as the size of the plant. That way you have a “star” plant that will spread its leaves out in the sun.
The planting plan should show where you want to place the pots where the bulbs and seeds will grow. You can buy planting kits that come with just about everything needed to get started. If you have had a hard time growing a vegetable or fruit, you can purchase your starter plants and transplant them into the space they need.
You can use small areas for certain kinds of flowering plants, such as flowers that need lots of sun. You don’t want to make a big area for these types of plants, because they may not thrive in that area. As for plants that need a lot of sunlight, you can take care of those yourself, or you can buy plants that need direct sunlight. When you are starting out with new plants, you should try to start them in indirect sunlight.
Small potting materials will be needed to help them grow, like small pebbles, rocks, or plastic pellets. Plants that need to be covered will probably do better if you cover them when you do your gardening.
If you are using a small room for your planting area, you can opt for hanging baskets or plastic flower boxes. You will also need to place plants at a good distance from any sources of heat so that they can breathe.
You can use smaller spaces for your herbs and other seeds and try to grow them as large as possible in containers. Be sure to soak them first so that they will germinate easier.
One final tip, if you are growing seeds, try to get them ready to germinate as soon as possible. You may not realize until you open them, but by waiting until they are at least six weeks old, you will ensure that the seeds will have more time to grow. Seeds are also more prone to mold and mildew if you wait too long to plant them.
