Your Guide To Creating Your Dream Garden Gardening seems simple on the surface, but it can actually be pretty complex. There are a lot of steps you have to take in order to give your plants their best possible chance. Let this article serve as your guide as you strive to create your dream garden. It'll help you achieve amazing results. 1. The best plants for your garden will be the ones native to your area. Not only will they be easier to care for, but they'll be able thrive and look their best. Research plants in your area when you're deciding what you'd like in your garden. 2. Before you purchase or plant anything, put together your garden's layout. Get a piece of paper and work out what you'd like, and where you'd like to plant it. This will make sure the process of creating your garden goes smoothly. 3. Include a variety of colors in your garden. When your garden is full of contrasting colors, your plants will stand out and will be easier to appreciate. If you're not sure what colors will work well together, use a color wheel. 4. Take into account the way a plant will grow throughout different seasons. A flower may be small in the spring, but grow to massive heights when summer rolls around. Make sure there's enough room for your plants to thrive every season. 5. To give your seeds the best possible start, you may want to start growing them indoors. Pests can prey on a seedling, preventing it from ever growing. However, if you get it off to a good start inside, it'll be more challenging for pests to take it down. 6. If you're growing seeds indoors, make sure everything is clearly labeled. Different plants have different needs, and you don't want to give a plant too much water, or keep it in the shade when it should be in the sun. It's also a good idea to label your outdoor plants while you wait for them to sprout. 7. Before you transfer a plant from a container to the soil outdoors, give it a while to get used to being outside. Simply rest the container on the grass, and let it sit for a bit before you transfer it into your garden. This will ensure the transfer goes smoothly, and your newly planted plant will thrive. 8. One of the most important aspects of gardening is patience. Give a plant time to grow, or time to sit outside. Don't prune a plant while it's still growing. When you're willing to wait, you'll get better results. 9. The ideal time to transfer a plant to your garden is during the evening when the sky is overcast. If the weather's hot and sunny, it's still better to wait until later in the day to move your plant. 10. Before you plant your plants, water them! This will ensure your plant is at its best and will make the transition easier. 11. After you've planted your plants, water them! It may seem excessive, but it'll help them adapt to the new soil. Since you will have just watered your plants, it's best not to use as much water as usual. Gardening is a lot of hard work, which is why it's so important to do things right. While there's no way to make sure all your plants will thrive, this will give them their best possible chance. If you stick to this guide, your dream garden will become a reality.
