Whether it is the best time of the day to water your plants or how to get rid of slugs effectively, there are plenty of questions most amateur gardeners have – plus, plenty of mistakes they have along the way in achieving their own perfect outdoor space. A green-fingered professional has seen plenty of gardeners make errors while tending their plants. However, he come up with ways on how to avoid those mistakes.
Often, overwatering can be just as bad as forgetting to water your plants completely. When you water your plants, remember to water the roots and not the leaves. Seedlings need plenty of water once they are planted, but after they have roots in their own, they will suck up the moisture of the soil.
Gardening jobs are hard work and it takes sacrifice. Many individuals start with growing plants, flowers or vegetable patches but give up soon after because it takes more work than they first thought. Keep a diary of what needs to be done and tick it off once completed.
GIVE PLANTS SPACE
It can be easy to pack your plants into one small space, but they need plenty of room to grow and stretch their roots. Check to see how much space they need before you place them in the ground.
Another simply yet incredible vital ingredient to growing healthy plants is the sun, and lots of it too. Make sure you are aware of how much sunlight your plants need as they tend to vary depending on what type they are.
Check your soil type before you buy a bag to ensure it reacts well with your plants. Different areas in the country have different soil, so some might not work as well with your chosen flowers.
