Planning to grow new plants? Here are the best times to start gardening

Last updated April 2nd, 2024.

A well-kept and beautifully landscaped garden is the perfect addition to your home. Not just homes, plants, and trees liven up any space and provide a refreshing feeling. The color green is linked to peace and calm since it has soothing to the eyes and has a calming effect on the brain.

Contrary to what most people believe, you do not need a 'green thumb' to have an innate talent for gardening. Planting and taking care of trees is an art and a science that can most certainly be learned and finessed over time. Whether you are buying wholesale plants and starting a major project or want to plant a small one right indoors, there are a couple of basic rules and tips you can follow to guarantee good results.

Basics of planting

Here are the major tips you need to know to get started on planting your very own garden:

1. Get the soil tested

Before planting anything, you need to ensure that you are well prepared and ready to start the process. A sample of the soil can be sent for testing, and based on the results, it can be determined which nutrients the soil is deficient in, if any, and which kinds of plants will be most suitable for the type of soil available.

2. Start small

Even if you have a grand vision about your landscaping project, it is always better to start with transplanting the smaller plants. You can get smaller wholesale plants at reasonable rates and begin the process of transplantation. Smaller plants are easier to manage and maintain. 

3. Dig wider holes

Once you have bought the plants you wish to start with, you need to dig a hole for the planting. Instead of digging a hole that is deeper but narrower, it is always best to dig one that is wider but shallower. This is because when plants are transplanted, their roots initially grow horizontally rather than vertically downwards. These roots need space to grow and anchor in the soil.

4. Ensure root care

The roots of the plants need special attention. Roots of wholesale plants must be kept damp when exposed, so there isn't a lack of moisture. In addition, it is best to prune and clean up the roots before placing them in the soil. This process gets rid of the dead roots and enables healthier growth in plants.

5. Water regularly

Watering the plants is the most important part once the transplantation has been completed. This can be a challenge, especially if you buy a varying variety of wholesale plants and each has a specific water requirement. However, the results are well worth the effort. One simple rule of thumb is to provide enough soil so it is soft enough that a screwdriver can easily penetrate the soil.

Start planting now

It may seem intimidating, but planting is not as difficult as it seems. It can be an extremely rewarding activity which is an excellent stress reliever.
