Gardening Made Easy – 4 Gardening Tips to Help Your Garden Grow

Gardening Made Easy

However many years she lived, Mary always felt that ‘she should never forget that first morning when her garden began to grow’.” ― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

I remember when I gave my niece her first potted plant. She was so excited. She watered it, talked to it, sang to it, and left it outside to grow. The next morning she woke up and ran to the deck. She came in with a disappointed look on her face. She complained that “nothing happened”. It made me smile because gardening isn’t always easy.

She sat on my lap and I explained to her that the plant needed time to grow and it wouldn’t happen overnight. She sighed, said okay, and then went about her day. She completely forgot about the flower pot and went home with it still on our deck. That was 3 years ago, and she still hasn’t asked about it.

Any gardener will tell you that gardening isn’t for everyone and can be difficult. It takes time, patience, and practice. However, just like Mary in the quote above, that first moment when your garden grows is one of the most exciting moments.

Today, before you head home, before you start your weekend project, we want to share a few tricks that have made gardening so much easier. You still have to be patience but these tricks should help.

  1. Mulch
    Mulching properly can be one of the best things you do for your garden. Not only does mulch keep your garden warm on colder days, but it also keeps weeds at bay. Add about 1 to 2 inches of mulch to your garden for best results.
  2. Rootwell Pro318
    Installing Rootwell Pro318 aeration tubes for your trees and your shrubs ensures their chance of survival. Not only will they last through the most difficult droughts, but they will also grow larger and stronger.
  3. Rootsticks
    Your potted plants will thank you by growing beautifully for installing Rootsticks. Rootsticks are especially designed for potted plants and will provide the oxygen, nutrients, and water that are needed for your plants to grow.
  4. Get’em While Their Young (Weeds I mean)
    Better Homes and Gardens recommends,

    Prevent weeds from being a big problem by yanking them out when they’re young. The smaller the weeds are, the easier they are to pull. Plus, you keep them from reproducing. A single crabgrass plant can make 150,000 seeds in a season. Pull the crabgrass before it matures and that’s 150,000 fewer weeds to whack in the future!”
