But the true knowledge of how to manage a garden comes from actually managing a garden. If you have never managed a garden you should do so. It is a great way to learn and you can take much information from it.
- The first decision is what to grow in your garden.
Do you want to grow flowers and vegetables? There are plants that are designed to have everything in the most optimal amounts. That is why they grow so quickly and thrive in conditions that others would not. There are also plants that grow quickly and do not require any fertilizer at all. That is the kind of plant I want to grow.
If you are a flower lover and want to grow healthy flowers in my garden then you will need to know which plants will bloom on which season. If I know that the plants will bloom in May I can plant them accordingly.
There are also plants that bloom on certain months each year. That is what I plant in my garden to make them bloom each year. This will allow you to have a garden that is full of beautiful flowers year round.
Of course there are plants that can survive without any care at all. That is what I use to grow my vegetables. It’s a simple way to grow healthy vegetables without any effort on your part.
If you want to do this then you can do this. It’s a great way to grow your garden and to not have to worry about pests, weeds, diseases or about anything else. Just plant the plants and forget about it. You will have your garden within a few weeks. If I do not plant them in the right season then I will have my plants die. This is a great way to grow your garden while avoiding risk.
- The second decision is what to plant in my garden.
I plant vegetables in beds. This makes it easier to fertilize and weeding. So do beds make good beds? No they do not. Why do you have two beds in your garden?
One is for vegetables and the other is for flowers. Why? Because if I fertilize the flowers that are not for eating then it will just grow on the ground. Do you want your bed to look nice? Of course! How? Start with color. Start with the colors of the plants in your garden, the order in which you plant them in your bed and the order in which you plant them out.
The bed is then made out of whatever you like. If you don’t like pink you can plant it in a pink bed and then if you like purple you can plant it out in a purple bed. If you like blue, try to plant it out in a blue bed and then if you like yellow you can do the same with a yellow bed.
As long as you follow these simple rules you will find that your garden plants grow very quickly and the garden looks beautiful within a short period of time.
Now if I am growing these plants because I need to?
No, not usually. In fact most of the plants that I grow are for the growing season or they are for the season that is just coming to an end. I want to grow plants that I can pick, add to my compost pile, plant in the fall and have them growing by the time the season ends and that is what I will do. Before I start any new plants in the garden, I start my compost pile and add those plants to it. I’ve been doing it this way for a long time and enjoy it.
This system takes some practice and getting used to but it is worth the time to get the system right. Then you can just do one or the other. Or you can mix them both, it is up to you.
