7 Gardening Tips For Beginners

 As busy as we are, it can be difficult to find the time to plant a few plants on our windowsill. Grow your own herbs and flowers on your window sill or balcony and let them bloom in their natural form. If you want to avoid looking like an amateur, start out small, then gradually increase your growing area as the sunlight allows. You’ll grow big pretty quickly! Your garden is not only for yourself but also for others too (as long as you keep it beautiful). From our very best friend Jules Verne, who said that “gardens are one of the best things you can learn about living” to my sister Lisa, here are some helpful gardening tips to help you get started so that you can enjoy life while having fun!


1) Choose what you want to plant


There are many different types of plants and each type has several different needs. Whether you choose a flowering shrub for your balcony, flowerbox, or your front yard balcony, remember to plant each type according to its requirements. Each plant has different needs which may change during your growing season. For example, if you have a lot of pots with all sorts of roses, consider planting carnations instead of daisies. Also remember though that some plants need lots of water and others need little or no water at all. Some types of plants will take longer to dry than others so water them appropriately throughout the growing season. Remember that most plants will last a bit longer than flowers so make sure not overwatered the bulbs with water or they will rot and die before harvest! That way, you don’t waste money as well as effort keeping your plant alive! It will be much easier to care for once you have grown enough of it to see in autumn. If you think you have grown it enough, cut back the dead bulbs from each plant to keep them looking nice. Or even better, place them inside a plastic container to cool in the sun and place them in the fridge to keep them active all winter. These tips have helped me through my first year and hopefully you will find some ways to use them to improve your growing space as your time goes by.

2) Create a planter to hold your plant growths


When your plants need water to grow, they need food for themselves, soil to support them, and protection from predators. One of the first things you should do when you decide where to plant your plants is make a planter box. This is a safe place for your plants as it allows them to be protected but not harmed by anything other than sunlight. Most small plants can easily keep water in the air around them so you can provide them a steady stream of water, not just rain. They love growing in the morning until lunchtime when most people are home, if you leave them outside at all hours of the day (especially in the summer), you risk damage to the roots which can cause severe root rot and could kill the plant in any case. A planter will keep your plant well hydrated and avoid this. The simple thing about plants is that you have to figure out every detail for success. I have done that with a large collection of flat beans. Each flat bean needs a water bowl to maintain fresh water and a drainage hole to prevent moisture coming into the plants' roots. My flat bean collection, like most small plants, has very heavy leaves, so I use a compost pit and a black plastic bag to store the leaves, then they are removed the very next day and placed into the drainage hole. I had to make special arrangements to take down all of the plants from each flat bean. Another problem is that a flat leaf can fall off a plant very fast and can damage other plants if the leaves get caught in the middle of their stems. A planter helps protect them from sharp objects. For example, I have planted a wide variety of vegetables in the centre of the planter, then it stops me from chopping them up and throwing them away. I then just go around removing those unwanted leaves. However, this is usually the final stages of cutting plants but also happens sometimes, so be careful but try to leave your plants looking healthy and happy.

3) Watering them properly In addition to watering


them whenever you feel like they need more water, always water them once a week or so. Start off with watering once a day then you can increase it as the days go along. Keep a water bottle next to the plant while you use it. This allows you to refill it with water as needed, doesn’t take much room in the container, and allows your plant to drink from the same source. You can buy a large watering jug for this but don’t forget to keep an empty bottle beside your new one. On top of the water bottle you can put your small nozzle and some scissors to take down any excess water.


4) Add fertilizer to the soil and plant roots


When you sow a seed, it needs at least a couple of weeks to start replanting itself and a light fertilizer such as rice bran or alfalfa can help you with this. In my experience using a mixture of both, they have been much cleaner. Rice bran is known to remove all the dirt from the soil completely for my plants. Alfalfa is good in helping with soil pH but does not remove all the nutrients completely such as phosphorus and potassium. Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E that gives your child a healthy glow and prevents scaly pimples by supporting collagen production and preventing free radical damage to skin cells. So why not fertilize your plants yourself and be prepared for the new life after they are mature enough. If seeds are not planted in soil, they will rot if they are not given a proper nutrition. But again, just give them a light dose of nutrient rich pellets, then plant them right away. Once your plants get going, they will look pretty great. Plus, they can stay dormant for years before making full-fledged plantlings, so they really help preserve the environment in the long run. This idea is very similar to how cats have an amazing ability to sleep and hibernate!

5) Sunscreen It is important to protect your plants


from the sun in whatever form you are using, whether it is from a hat or from the ground. Sunscreen is not only a useful product but a must-have for your family. Sunscreen should be used early in the spring, and again in the summer. I use two layers of sunscreen to combat the sun’s UV rays, one to cover the tops of my plants and another for the bottoms. After I have my two layers of sunshineblock (that is usually made out of zinc oxide or calcium acetate ), I apply it to both sides of my plants. Then when I am outside, I spray some water onto my plants, shake it around, and then spray some on my house. Now my house looks much cleaner, the plants look fabulous, and there’s no chance whatsoever of getting burned or sunburnt. I never forget to spray some water onto my leaves so they stay green and healthy.


6) Hydrate Often When growing plants,


I always make sure that I have several gallons of water stored somewhere so that we can continue drinking them as necessary. Don’t worry, though, I learned the hard way that although you can’t take your plants with you everywhere, you can have your flowers in your refrigerator (if you like) and your veg at home. Just ensure that your water comes from the tap, not from something else. Many plants can survive dry conditions without water, especially if they are left in dark places to give it the best chance. So when you hear thunderstorms, rain, or high wind, you can stay hydrated, water your plants and get rid of any residue so that your plants are still clean and looking beautiful. As for watering, it isn’t a question of stopping and starting; rather, it is just ensuring that you’re giving the plants some water. The next tip will have to do with timing, so don’t forget about that. Unless you have a window of nearly unlimited size, you can’t bring your plants in with you in bags or containers. Plant them in the soil first, in the soil, and then you can either plant them in a pot or container. Since everything is so hot in southern California, I have the option of growing my plants in the greenhouse. It makes sense since there aren’t any trees to be hit by lightning but it can be dangerous because of the heat, so I stick with what I know and don’t add anything fancy. By growing them in this spot, we have got the extra protection required for weather changes. We are all aware that storms can happen anywhere, so my advice would be to let the storm hit you if you are lucky. Even if you don’t get hit, you can prevent the spread of germs by storing your flowers and foliage in the fridge and not allowing anyone to touch them unless absolutely necessary! This means that if anybody did want to check that wilted flowerpot or wilted lettuce, you wouldn’t have to worry about germs spreading. You can always return the vegetable or leafy greens to the fridge later on for a fresh set and you can just wait to see how the weather turns when you are outdoors. Be creative, because anything is possible!


7) Avoid direct sunlight When they are in the morning


the sun’s light blocks their natural pigment and causes them to turn brown. I prefer to make my plants happy around indirect sun rather than direct sun. While we should still try to stay comfortable in the shade if we’re out of town
