With all these good reasons, no wonder why a lot of people would want to have their own garden at home. For a start, look at the simple steps below that would guide you on how to start a garden:
First, you need to find an area where you can happily grow all your desired plants. Make sure that you can handle the space and the sun can easily reach it.
Clear the spot by removing all the unwanted weeds. Weeds are unhealthy for your plants. Unfortunately, they seem to be stubborn and they keep on coming back.
Loosen the soil that you will use so that your plants can breathe. This can be easily done with the use of a shovel or a pick. This softens the soil making it easier for the plants to grow and spread their roots. Watering the soil first can also help in softening it before turning it over.
Planting can be done once the soil has been prepared well. For beginners, planting through seeds is not advised since it will take a longer time and a more delicate process. Instead, they should make use of seedlings which can be planted directly to the soil. These can be acquired and purchased from many garden shops and nurseries. After planting, the soil should be moistened around the plants so as to make the plant more secure and stable in the soil. This process is then repeated everyday until the plants are observed to have adjusted to their new environment. After new growths have appeared, fertilizers can now be added to the soil. This is to ensure that the plants will grow healthy and fat.
When you are completely done with all the procedures that state on how to start a garden, you can now wait for the plants to grow as you continue taking care of them.
