Gardening Tips for Beginners

As Spring weather rolls in it is time to take advantage of our Gardening Tips For Beginners! Not only can you save your family a ton of money by providing them with fresh grown at home produce, you’ll love watching the process unfold. Gardening at home is also a great family project to work on with your kids this summer. There are tons of ways to get them involved in making your home garden a success.

Gardening Tips For Beginners

Only plant what you know your family will eat. Just because your friend has a huge crop of Eggplant, doesn’t mean you have to have it. If you already know you family doesn’t care for tomatoes, don’t plant them. Plant the produce your family will eat. Stay focused on the items you use the most of, and plant accordingly.

Start small and work your way up. When you first get started, it is best to start small and work your way up. Container gardening is a perfect method to test out your gardening skills without committing to plowing up an acre of land in your back yard. Traditional flower pots, window boxes, 5 gallon buckets, old bowls or even old shoes have all been used for effective container gardening. The idea is to utilize a small portable item to grow your vegetables in, while often testing out new vegetables to see how they grow in your climate and if your family enjoys them.

Don’t forget herbs and lettuce. One of the easiest things to grow are herbs and lettuce. From spinach to baby bib lettuce, you can easily create a salad with little to no work in your garden. Herbs can be equally easy to grow as well as wonderfully fragrant around your home. These make great starter gardens that can help you build your meals full of flavor and health.

Setting up your first garden can be a ton of fun. Not only are these gardening tips for beginners a great way to get started, they are simple to follow. Focus on growing items that you know your family will enjoy and you’ll find great success as a gardener.

    Great advice for a beginning gardener like myself. My mom is a very experienced gardener so it is hard to think small when comparing hers to mine, but I will try harder. Lol.
