Planting a garden can be a bit challenging, especially if you live in an area where the climate and weather conditions can wreak havoc on sensitive plants and their habitats. These tips should help you get started by planting the right plants and creating the ideal environment for them to thrive in:
- Before doing anything else (including buying your seeds), decide on whether you want to plant indoor or outdoor plants. This is a very important thing to consider, since some plants won’t survive indoors very easily unless they get special treatment and a fine-tuned environment that can sustain them properly.
- Research which plants can and can’t grow in the area you want to plant them in. Some plants are more sensitive to the cold, while others don’t do very well in drought conditions. Also, it’s important to check the pH of your soil. Even though most plants will tolerate an environment with a pH between 5.5 and 7, not all of them can tolerate all pH values within that interval.
- Purchase and apply the compost for plants before planting your seeds. This is often a recommended method for planting from seeds, since it allows them to begin drawing nutrients from slow-release fertilizer as soon as they start coming out of their seeds.
