When you start finding out how to plant your own garden, you need to start small. If you have a location that is 25 or 30 square feet, which is enough room for 30 plants, that will be a perfect plant bed. That scale of plant bed is exactly right to see if you have the desire to come to be a gardener while not causing you to burn out due to over work. After you get into it, you'll be able to start extending your garden.
The best place to have the garden is in a location that gets at least six hours of sunlight. Never place the garden in close proximity to large trees since they tend to take nutrients away from a garden. You must also have about three feet of area from the building or fences to your garden. When your area is commonly hot, you will want to have some shade available for your plants. A garden can certainly still thrive in extreme heat provided that the plants are able to handle the heat. If you don't have excellent soil in the beginning in your garden, you can take steps to improve it over time. Make sure you avoid areas where the water stands, steep slopes or rocky soil.
Once all aspects are prepped, the fun commences when you start digging into the soil. You're going to get messy, because doing a garden as a hobby is not clean. Before you do almost any sowing, you should get rid of all the debris, rocks, grass and weeds. Next, dig up the soil, about a foot deep, level it up, and insert minerals or compost, if it is needed. If necessary, start adding some lime if you find the soil is acidic and add some peat moss if you feel the soil is too sandy. Including plenty of fertilizer will help your plants grow well neutral to acidic soil. Just be sure you read the details when you buy seeds for planting. In choosing plants instead, locate ones that have strong roots, and leaves and stems, that are green and healthy looking.
The large plants should be in the rear part of the bed, while the smaller ones are in the front. You should plant once the frosts are essentially over. When working with plant seeds, read the instructions since it will tell you when is the best time to plant. After you seed everything, you want to make sure that you give the correct amount of water. With only a few plants, it is possible to water them by hand, or you can use a sprinkler.
Sprinkling your plants during the cooler parts of the day is best. While it can vary by plants, on the whole, plants need about an inch of water each week. Over the hot summer season, you may find that plants need an inch of water three times a week. Your plants and flowers are going to start growing in no time once everything is completed.
