Starting a Garden During Quarantine

The most experienced gardeners all seem to know a bunch of tricks and shortcuts that new gardeners can’t seem to find anywhere. Every gardener has moments in which they hit speed bumps or other obstacles that will make you want to throw down your trowel and give up but don’t let these moments get the better of you. Some quick ideas are all about growing your garden in a pretty cool or pretty hot place. These conditions are easier to deal with when you are open to the idea of modifying the bed in which you are gardening. You will need to do some (fun, trust us) research to find out more on how to do these things. That’s a freebie as a thank you for staying here and reading our gardening tips.

Vegetable Garden

One thing that we have figured out over the years is that lots of people like to grow both flowers and food. When you want to be able to eat your own garden grown veggies, here is something that is going to make them grow really well. When it comes to having a fuller growth and vegetable maturation and then make every effort possible to give them lots of room. Growing vegetables in rows at least three feet wide is what gives them the best chance of thriving–at least, this is what the most experienced veggie growers have discovered. There are plenty of reasons for this, including fuller foliage on the plant which then doubles as a shade for the surrounding soil. When this happens, there will be better moisture retention in the soil and less weeds to have to fight with.

Gardening Tools

Most people tend to have a little collection of gardening tools handy and they seem to stick with them forever or until they fall apart. There isn’t really anything wrong with this but you definitely need to carefully assess what you are going to need for your garden so that you get as much done as possible in the smallest amount of time. It’s important to assess your own fitness and physical conditions.

For instance, most tools come in both long-handled and short handled variations. Both are good tools but the longer handled version can save your back and knees because it allows you to do the same work without as much bending and kneeling.

Gardening Enthusiasts

Gardening is a different kind of interest or activity because it is normally done alone or with another family member. However, there is the possibility of meeting and networking with new people. There are online groups and forums you can join and most areas have local groups of gardening enthusiasts as well.

The very best gardening tips are born in the real world and come from actual experiences had by the gardeners who tried and succeeded or failed before us. If you’re new to all of this, then we think it is the best to become a familiar face at your local nursery. When you do this not only are you going to support local businesses, you’ll also make friends and gain helpful insight into the garden that you hope to create.
