ARE YOU a green thumb?
Well, if you love spending time in your garden and pride yourself on making it look great, you’ve come to the right place.
Gardens across the country are blooming in color right now thanks to the warmer temperatures.
However, one gardening expert has warned that where exactly you plant your bulbs is very important because planting them in the ‘wrong spot’ could be very damaging to the health of your garden.
Sutton Manor Nursery’s William Mitchell explained that it was extremely important not to put plants “in the wrong place”.
He said: “This is something your casual gardener will most likely never think of.
“However, it can be extremely important for a perfectly healthy plant.
“When considering where exactly to place your plant, you should always know the exact needs of the plant.”
According to William, if you crowd too many plants into beds and borders, disease could tear up your beautiful display.
He continued: “It can be very bad for the plants if they are too close together.
“Like humans, plants don’t like being cramped and crowded.
“They need air to circulate and space to spread their branches and their roots as they grow.

“Plant crowding can also contribute to the spread of disease, and therefore plant spreading helps stop the spread of unwanted diseases.”
So if you’re getting your flowers planted and are wondering how to choose the best spot, William has some top tips for you.
Gardening tips and hacks
It’s important to research your plant before planting it.
William added: “If your plant needs shade, placing it in an area of your garden that gets full sun all the time during the summer months may not be very good for the health of the plant.
“In order for it to grow exactly as it should, it should be placed in a spot that receives plenty of shade and best suits its needs.”
Therefore, it is very important that you take care when planting your flowers and make sure they have enough space for the expected size.
