Learning how to grow and maintain a garden could completely transform your outside areas. Having a functional and enjoyable garden has the potential to become a great place to relax and spend time with your friends and family.

Most people believe that maintaining a garden can be difficult, especially if you don't know what you are doing. However it isn't as hard as you may think. To start you off, here are some general tips to help your garden grow!

Placement
Find a sunny spot where your plants will have full access to about six hours of sun a day. You also need to place your plants where they will get rain. Avoid placing your plants under eaves that will block rain from dropping down. Rain not only helps your plants grow but also keeps them clean and deters pests. A fortnightly allowance of fertiliser will also help to keep the plants happy.

For smaller areas of the home, you want to ensure you aren't over cluttering the area. For balconies, consider using one large pot instead of lots of little ones. Also ensure the plants will still receive direct sunlight so they can grow big and healthy.

Planting
Some plants will grow better in your garden from seeds and others will grow better when they are at a more mature stage. Do your research about the plants you want to put in your garden, find out what they require and what conditions are the most suitable for them. This will make your gardening experience a lot easier and successful.

Preparing the soil
Your plants will only be as good as your soil. In order for your plants to grow happily you will need to buy nutrient dense soil. In addition to this, producing your own compost will help your plants to stay alive and healthy. A compost will make up for what bagged soil lacks in the natural microbiology area. Whilst considering these points you also need to ensure you are watering the soil to promote growth.
