Expert Gardening Tips for Beginners

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Arizona Resource Realty BR518926000

Keep tabs on your garden; create a scrapbook using an inexpensive photo album and add your plant tags and stick to it each season. Then, make it as detailed as you can like by adding information as to where the plants were purchased and where the plant is located in your garden. Add your own artistic flair with sketches of your garden photographs.


CREATE A NO-STICK SHOVEL
Spray your favorite garden shovel with a silicone lubricant to make shoveling a breeze. A good coating of the spray will make any type of soil slip right off the shovel without a mess.


LIGHTEN THOSE HEAVY POTS
Take the strain out of lifting large planters and pots by filling the pots one-third to one-half with packing peanuts. Be sure to place a piece of landscape fabric on top of the packing peanuts and then layer on your potting soil. To reduce the weight of the pot further, use a potting mix with lots of vermiculite and peat moss.


TRANSPORT YOUR POTS
Before your next trip to the local nursery, line the back of your car with plastic tarp and place a small step ladder on top of the tarp. The slots between the rungs of the ladder serve as perfect compartments to protect your fragile plants during the drive home.


PORTABLE POTTING
Upgrade your wheelbarrow by fitting a piece of plywood to the back end with wood cleats. This creates a flat surface that is perfect for potting. Now you can wheel your soil and plants to the garden all in one easy trip.

I love that no-stick shovel idea-spraying it with silicone spray-who knew?

Really enjoyed the "ladder in the back" idea.
In fact, was transporting plants today.
at great distances from others, of course.
All the best - Lynn
