3. Have Access To Water
One of the best gardening tips you’ll ever get is to plan your new gardening project that has a close water source so make sure you can run a water hose to your growing site. The last thing you’ll be wanting to d is to lug water to it each time your plants get thirsty.
The best way to tell if plants need watering is to push a finger an inch down into the soil (that’s about one knuckle deep) – if it’s dry, it’s time to water.
4. Begin With The Best Soil
When starting a garden, one of the top pieces of advice is to invest in soil that is nutrient-rich and well-drained. To achieve this, blend your soil by mixing 3 inches of quality all-purpose mix into the top 6 to 8 inches of existing soil if you’re planning to plant in the ground.
If you’re planting in a raised bed, use the same mix, which is the perfect weight and texture for raised bed growing.
