National Gardening Month is right around the corner, which means that now is a great time to get into the spirit of the season. If your green thumb is itching to get into some fertile soil, the following are tips that will help you select the right seeds for your gardening dreams.
Start by being detailed in your research. Don’t just buy from any catalog that comes in the mail. If you’re unsure of a company’s reputation, contact a master gardener and seek out their opinion.
Additionally, be selective in what you buy. Make sure that the plants you are considering will do well within your garden’s soil. If the soil requires special preparation and treatment, be sure to factor this into your decision before you write a check for the seeds.
You will also want to be careful not to buy too many seeds. After all, your garden is a limited space. To avoid overbuying, map out your garden and flower beds on a sheet of graph paper. This will help you pinpoint the precise number of plants you should plant.
When your seeds arrive, inspect the package and seeds thoroughly. You will want to make sure the seeds have not expired and are still viable so you’re not planting duds.
Finally, experiment. Change things, add things, and treat every planting season as an opportunity to try something new. Not only does this make gardening a bit more fun, but the results can also transform your garden in ways you haven’t even imagined.
