GARDENING may seem easy, but it can be overwhelming when you don’t know what to do.
One enthusiast has revealed the five things she wished she knew when she started working on her garden.
BUYING PLANTS IS BETTER
Taking to social media, a Brad’s Deals ambassador, highlighting the daily sales, said: “Growing from seed is more budget-friendly but time-consuming, while buying from plants is more expensive but it leaves more leeway in your schedule.”
However, if you decide to start your garden from scratch (pun intended), consider starting it indoors if you live in a colder climate.
Once the weather warms up, you can take them outside.
If you’re looking for more variety, you might want to buy seeds or plants online.
She swears by garden stores like Park Seed, Breck’s and Burpee.
However, the expert cautioned against buying plants from Amazon because you can’t always check the quality or age of the plant.
QUALITY AGAINST PRICE
“The key to buying tools and supplies is looking for quality,” she revealed.
“Cheap items may not last after one season.”
You can go to your local Lowe’s or Home Depot for quality tools.
If you’re looking to start your garden and have no idea what to do, the expert revealed that you might want to buy perennials because they’re considered “single and ready-made plants.”
This means that once you plant them, they will come back on their own every season.
She also listed herbs, fruits, and vegetables as starter plants because not only are they easy to care for, but they also provide you with nutrition.
“Avoid wildflower seed packets,” she noted.
“While the variety of flowers in a package is tempting, they’re rarely worth the money.”
It’s best to focus on specific plants that you know how to care for.
