Now, if you’re curious to learn more about gardening and allowing your passion bloom further, here are some tips that let you efficiently use your time, money, and energy.

Choose a convenient location

By a convenient location, we mean a place in your property that the eye could easily see, such as near your front door or back door. This will help you remember to keep them watered and tended as they are very accessible – especially for harvest.

Here are some herbs and vegetables that you can easily nurture in your own backyard – especially if you’re a beginner.

Fertilize smarter

When looking for fertilizers, try searching for varieties that are labeled “slow-release fertilizers.” This means they release a small yet steady amount of nutrients over time. Most are natural and organic. They also help you save time as you won’t have to fertilize your plants as frequently.

Color-code your gardening tools

Worrying about misplaced tools is a typical problem among gardeners. You can avoid this by getting color-coded ones. When shopping for tools, such as trowels, cultivators, forks, and pruners, choose those with bright hues like orange or red, so you can spot them easily amid your greens. You can also store them in organized storage bins to keep your gardening kit in order.

Get inspiration – online or from neighbors

If you’re a beginner, you can start small – caring for no more than three kinds of plants or vegetables. This way, you can truly enjoy the process of learning about gardening with a lower rate of failure. Before shopping, keep a finalized list of seedlings you want to plant to reduce the urge to impulse buying.

The gardening community is big and generous in giving tips and tricks. You may ask for help from your neighbor or connect with other gardeners on social media through Facebook groups such as “Manila Grows Food.”

Go for daily maintenance checks

Make it a habit to walk around your garden every day. Research says spending time amid greenery boosts our health. Also, by regularly checking your plants, you can prevent pests and diseases. Better spot them sooner than later, so you can take some measures to cure your green creations and keep your garden thriving.

Easy gardening at home

Grow native plants

While exotic varieties may be appealing, it’s vital to care for the local biodiversity. That's why getting native plants for your garden is the more logical and environmentally-friendly choice. Not only you will cut carbon emissions and costs from expensive shipping, but you will also help prevent the emergence of invasive species while letting the native flora thrive with less care than other plants from different climates.

Consider using containers

If you still want to save space or try indoor gardening, using containers is your best bet. Many plants thrive in pots, including vegetables, herbs, and shrubs. Remember to choose the right size so it could properly host the plant, and fill them in with the appropriate plant grower to let the greens blossom.
