Tips for Gardening Beginners

Posted : Wednesday 10th April 2013

Don’t do the entire garden - Most people who are just starting out or have moved into a new garden feel pressured to do the whole garden at one time.

Cover the soil with ground cover plants - One of the biggest problems newcomers to gardening find is maintenance.

Buy quick growing plants - Plants take time to grow and whether you have grown from seed or cuttings a garden full of tiny new plants can be demoralising at the best of times.

Use natives wherever possible - Native plants offer a fail safe answer to many new gardeners.

Use local garden centre knowledge - Garden centres are a great source of knowledge with most having help desks.

Share cuttings with neighbours - The great thing about gardening is that it is addictive and gardeners are nice people
