The Perfect Garden

Many people dream of having the perfect garden but, alas, we can’t all have them, it takes a lot of work and time to get your dream to come true.

Cost becomes a large factor that many people can not handle, but, there are ways around this problem. With the economy being what it is, many people don’t want to spend money on things unless they absolutely have to.

Here is a way to create your perfect garden with spending next to nothing.

If you don’t have a large yard space but would like to have a garden, consider container gardening. You can use any container you have in your home for the most part, many you get when you make a purchase at the super market. For example butter tubs, yogurt cups, plastic coffee cans. As plants grow, the containers get covered by the foliage of the plants depending on what you plan to grow in your garden.

If you are just wanting flowers, it is best to start with seeds to save, on money, there are many great flowers that grow well from seed. Some examples are: marigolds, morning glories, pansy, geraniums, and many more. You can check with your local gardening club or garden center to find out which would be best for your area. 

If you are doing a pot garden, you will need to water more often than you do with a standard garden, as it gets warm, the soil in the pots tend to dry out a bit faster than when the plants are in the ground.

If you don’t want to spend a lot on potting soil, you can do a mix of potting soil with earth from your yard. It is said that this will actually help the plants become more accustomed to the climate in your area.

As your garden grows, you will need to still maintain the plants through out the growing season. Many flowers can actually weather through out the fall and winter in your home if you choose to try and continue their growth. You will need to make sure that if you punctured the containers for drainage you place something under the containers so that they don’t leak on your floor.

You can find lots of ideas all over the web that can provide you with additional information about creating gardens. Depending on what you are looking for you will be amazed.
