Common Mistakes Made by Beginning Gardeners
Even when new gardeners are armed with gardening know-how and advice, there are still numerous beginning gardener mistakes that take place. There are a few things that should be done in order to avoid common beginning gardener mistakes.
Firstly, before any flower, vegetable, vine, tree, or shrub is placed into the ground, it is important to prepare the soil.
- The highest grade plant material that is available can be easily purchased.
- However, if your soil is not prepared in the correct way, your garden may be doomed to failure.
- It is important to know your soil.
- You can begin with a top soil if you wish; however, due to the fact that top soil by itself is too heavy and dense and is limited due to porosity, water retention and lack of nutrients, it is required that you add a lighter material to it.
