Gardening for Gardeners

from: Ultimate Home Gardening

Gardening is an activity that is enjoyed by a wide variety of individuals. Gardening may be done just about anywhere that an individual gardener will find some soil, light and ventilation to grow a plant. Gardening can be done in big plots of land, in small containers, in hanging baskets, in vases on a windowsill. A lot of things may be grown in those containers, from flowering plants to vegetables.

First time gardeners frequently have visions of huge expanses covered with the plant of the gardenerís dream. If the beginner would like to experience the taste of fresh vegetables, picked at their freshest, right from the plant, the beginner might envision a big area filled with a variety of vegetables, all at their best. Those who want to start flower gardening may have dreams of that same huge area, covered in colourful blossoms. Neither beginner has any idea of the work that is involved to accomplish this gardening task. The gardener may not even realize that all the plants in that beautiful vision cannot be grown in the same plot at the same time.

It is best if the beginning gardener begins small. The beginner should also plan the gardening tasks. How much time is available to spend on their garden? How much area is available to plant the desired plants? Will the plants even grow in that particular surrounding? Though many plants might have a variety that can be grown in any geographic location, the new gardener must realize that growing a form of a citrus plant will be more difficult in Alaska than it will be in sunny Florida. A plant that likes water and a humid climate will not grow well in a dry area unless the gardener is willing to do the work required to create that environment for the specific plant.

When you start a gardening task, the new gardener needs to analyze the soil that is available and then decide what has to be done to improve the soil, if necessary, to make it appropriate for the plants that will be grown. Some plants prefer an alkaline soil. Other plants prefer an acid soil. Some plants do better in soil that has good drainaige. Other plants are not so picky. If the new gardener does not investigate the soil and the needs of the plants, any gardening activity is not going to do well. Anybody who wants to begin a garden should find a local garden center and ask the knowledgeable employee what has to be done for the particular plants in a particular situation. Armed with this basic information, a new gardener has a much better chance of successful gardening.
