You don't have to be born a gardener to have success growing things. The plants in your garden all have specific needs, and meeting them is the secret of many a successful gardener. As long as you're aware of the particular needs of the plants you've chosen, you should be able to do fine. Of course, there are a few basic principles that you should keep in mind when gardening, such as the ones we'll be covering in this article.
A vegetable garden can be one of the most rewarding types of garden to have, as you can directly benefit from the results. Vegetable gardens are a healthy way to begin your gardening experience because you are producing pesticide free veggies for dinner every day. These are some simple reasons why starting this type of garden is a great way to begin. A wide variety of seeds are available after the winter months at nurseries and grocery stores across the nation. Choosing from a variety of nutritious vegetables such as corn, yellow peppers, and rutabagas, you can grow what you like. Make sure that your garden has a south facing view that allows it to receive as much sunshine as possible. Plant your vegetables adjacent to your house, preferably near your kitchen, so that when you are cooking you can run out and get the vegetables that you want. While you can use your own soil, and enhance it with fertilizer, when you start out as a gardener you may want to choose the option of buying commercially made soil. This is infinitely easier than working to make changes in the soil through fertilizers, nitrates, and other additives. Be sure to ask for the specific kind of soil you're going to need at the gardening store where you buy it. If you want to save money, you could plant using the soil you already have, but this is always a bit risky if you're not sure how suitable it is. When you plant your garden in soil you know is appropriate you'll have one less worry to consider.

It's wise to make sure you have all the tools you need before you get started with gardening and wait until later to get some of the tools you want. You don't have to start out spending a lot of money on tools, especially if you only want to start a small garden, but you should make sure you have some good quality basic items that will serve your needs. You can't begin to guess the specific tools you're going to need until you know which plants you'll have in your garden but some of the basic tools that most gardens need include items like gloves, weeding tools, shovels, spades, garden hoses, rakes, shears, and trowels. It's amazing how much of a difference it can make to your success at gardening as well as your enjoyment of it when you have fast access to tools like these.
Any gardener will tell you that it's about half and half study and physical labor. Your plants will have complex needs and you should invest in research time to understand how those needs are best met. With time, you'll develop an intuition for gardening and your experience will yield greater success and confidence. You won't have a degree in horticulture, but you'll have definitely earned your green thumb.
