Gardening for beginners

Gardening for beginners

Gardening can seem a daunting task for beginners, but after years of pacing up and down mowing the lawn you love so much, you decide to eventually chase your dream, grab the fork and spade and have a go at turning over some worm holed turf. Not just so the birds can swoop down and nibble some grubs! But to grow some cress to create the greatest cress sandwich ever! Okay it's cress after all but with say a tomato or two then your in business, especially with this Gardening for beginners guide I'm about to introduce you'll be experimenting no end by measuring yourself against the sun flowers you've planted.

Planting the seed: Begin your Garden Journey with a Plan of Action

Having a month by month plan for your garden is key. More importantly if you’re a gardening beginner. Stick the calendar inside the bare cobweb infested shed at the start of the year and by the end of the year you'll swap the spiders for tools and will be laughing all the way to the garden centre once you've studied each months specific instructions. A priority from January to January is a new garden gnome, you can never have enough of the little lawn security guards. Learning how to sow seeds to water butt usage can be easily read in the gardening for beginners calendar on Thompson-Morgan website.

Gardening Tips for Beginners

If your low on confidence and you feel like you need a push in the right direction, maybe a gardening for beginners course from the RHS would be the right path to walk on, that way you could interact with fellow beginners who are at the same level as you, to push forward your learning. There's plenty of courses online that you can pick ranging from vegetable growing to creating a wildlife haven for your insects, the latter must be extremely healthy after eating five a day in your veggie garden.

Gardening for Beginners doesn't have to be Hard

Planting is an extremely simple garden job that you can trial and error with in a small patch of your garden, driving down to your local garden centre will have a gardening for beginners plant batch which you can mess around with. Weeding also needs to be done which anyone can do and as a beginner there's no better way than getting down and dirty pulling them out of the ground, if you manage to do the weeding to a high standard that will leave plenty of space for your plants to grow happily without the weeds tangling in and out of the soil you so pleasantly spread!

 Gardening for beginners can be a lot of fun, it's mostly experimenting with Mother Nature. And don't forget, now that you're ready to get out there and get gardening, once you've done your weeding you can tweet us or facebook us to let us know how far you've come!
