Tips for Beginner Gardeners

Posted by Sam on

If you are looking to get into gardening, here are a couple of tips to get you started. 

You don’t need a lot of space when it comes to gardening.  It’s better to start with a small plot or some pots while you see if it’s for you. Think about how much space a fully grown plant will take up, versus a small seedling. Think about your plants – do you want to save money and grow plants from seeds, which is cheaper, but takes longer and requires either a greenhouse or lots of window sill space, or do you want to buy small plants from the garden centre?

Set a budget. Whether you’re on a tight budget or not, it’s a good idea to know how much you can comfortably afford. Do some planning and don’t get enthusiastic and buy lots of seeds and plants from the garden centre and bung them anywhere when you get home.
