Commonplace Mistakes Made by New Gardeners

By: Arvinito Aaling

If you are an amateur gardener, there are some bloopers in particular that you really do not want to make. Perchance you do have some bloopers, you do not have to be letdown, as you can typically fix it right aware or in the next season. Although, with a bit of knowledge and looking ahead, you can circumvent a lot of first-time gardening mistakes, like the ones we will be reviewing in this article.

It is essential that all people that grow a garden limit how much they are going to grow to make sure mistakes are not made. You may have an image of a beautiful garden that contains every type of plant you've ever admired, but keep in mind that it takes effort to keep all of your plants healthy. Another thing to keep in mind is each plant needs its own space, and some plants cannot grow with others. A garden that you have, especially if it is your first one, should be easy to take care of to ensure success. Basically, you will have too much to do, not enough time, and your ambitions will fail before your eyes. If you diversify too much, and have too many plants with different needs, you will not be able to take care of them all - there is just not enough time in the day.

Most people that do gardening are not fond of one particular aspect of it - weeding. If you want your garden to succeed, you will definitely be weeding every day or you will find it overrun in no time at all. Not weeding enough is a common mistake that prevents many gardens from reaching their true potential. If you have been gardening for some time, you probably use something like a ground cover plant or mulch to help with these situations. Some gardeners will grow their plants in containers. Doing so prevents the weeds from spreading so easily and makes it much more manageable. Yet weeds will even show themselves in containers sometimes, so even then you have to be on the lookout for them.

You need to pay attention to what kind of plants you put in your garden because there are plants that can cause damage to your garden plants. These are usually plants that are invasive. Many plants exist that become invasive and aggressive in their growth and can have a serious impact on your other garden plants.

English Ivy is another problem plant if you have it growing anywhere in your yard. It looks great, but it is tenacious and spreads rapidly through its creeping roots and branches. If you order seeds from a catalog, there will usually be a warning that the plant is aggressive or prolific. When you choose to plant something that may try to spread through its roots or rhizomes to other parts of your garden - mint is a good example - use containers or tubs to keep the plant controlled.

Before planting anything, make sure that you have done your proper analysis on the plants in your garden to make it successful and hopefully mistake free. At the same time, don't let the fear of making mistakes stop you from enjoying your garden. All gardeners make mistakes so don't worry about making one or two along the way. Gardening is a fun learning experience that is only accentuated by the mistakes that we learn from. Start your garden today!
