Having your own garden is a very satisfying and rewarding experience. If you are a beginner, all of these can be difficult. We have compiled the best gardening techniques specifically designed for beginners.The following content also has some reference value for raised garden beds.

Choose the correct location

The first thing you must consider before starting the gardening process is the specific location you want. The location of your garden can affect the growth process and success of your garden, as you need to place it in a sunny and easily visible place.

Especially for vegetable gardens, you need to choose a location that allows plants to receive at least six hours of sunlight per day. The site should also have easy access to a stable water supply.   Provide sufficient sunlight and water for plants: Most plants require sufficient sunlight and water to grow well. Make sure to provide sufficient sunlight and water to the plants, but do not over water or expose them to sunlight to avoid causing damage to the plants.garden bed

Finally, you will want to put it in a place you often see, as it will encourage you to work more frequently.

Know the correct time to plant in your area

Depending on the type of plant, certain plants require you to plant in different climates throughout the year. Choosing plants that are suitable for your environment and level of experience is very important. Some plants require more sunlight, water, and fertilizer, while others require less care.  Beginners can start with plants that are easy to grow and maintain, such as mint, rosemary, tulip, and so on.

Only plant what you will use

It's pointless to spend time and energy cultivating vegetables that you don't use or enjoy eating. Many beginners seem to simply choose the plants they consider beautiful or the standard plants for most gardens.

However, there is no point in growing vegetables that you won't use or at least sell to others. Having said that, you still need to consider what types of vegetables you personally use and only grow them.

Utilize supporting planting

Matching planting refers to placing certain plants closer together to improve the overall quality of each plant. Putting certain plants together can help you make the best use of the entire garden space and also help provide additional benefits to your garden.

More specifically, supporting planting can help control the number of pests in the entire garden, improve soil fertility, provide natural scaffolding, control weeds, and help reduce shading.

Water the garden at the right time

In general, you should not only water your garden, but also ensure that you water it at the correct time of day. Generally, the best time to water a garden is before the sun directly strikes the garden, as the soil has the ability to absorb water rather than being evaporated by the sun's heat and energy. More importantly, you will want to water the garden, and only water it once or twice a week. You should also ensure that you specifically meet the water needs of each plant.garden bed

Remove weeds

Regular pruning and weeding: Regular pruning and weeding can ensure that plants have sufficient space and nutrients to grow. At the same time, it can also keep your gardening area clean and tidy. For example, cutting dead leaves and branches in a timely manner can enable plants to better utilize nutrients and water.

Disease and insect pest control: Regularly check whether plants are affected by diseases and insect pests, and take appropriate measures to prevent and control diseases and insect pests.

Pay attention to soil quality: Good soil is the key to plant growth. You need to ensure that the soil is rich in nutrients, well ventilated, and has good water permeability. Organic fertilizers and compost can be used to improve soil quality.

Control the amount of watering: Plants need sufficient water to grow, but watering too much or too little can affect plant growth. Therefore, it is necessary to reasonably control the amount of watering based on the growth status of plants and soil moisture.

Pay attention to the light needs of plants: Plants need light to perform photosynthesis, but different plants have different light needs. Therefore, before planting, it is necessary to understand the lighting requirements of plants and control the lighting intensity based on different plant locations.

Overall, taking care of your own garden can be a difficult task, especially if you have no previous gardening experience. With some time and patience, you will have the opportunity to plant the garden of your dreams. I hope these tips for beginners can help your garden achieve greater success. Ultimately, you must consider what you want to grow, where you want to grow it, and how you want to grow it. Tracking your gardening progress is one of the most important steps, as it will help you become better over time.
