  Preparing for a Garden  
Garden care is not something you can simply pick up one day and start. You need the right know-how, the right tools, and the right area to start with. Below we have listed some of the things you need to consider before planting that first seed.

Get the Help You Need

First and foremost, do the research. You need to know what you are looking for depending on where you want to plant your garden. Go to a garden center that is well staffed and equipped with quality flowers. Most plants will come with a tag so you will know their name, their prime conditions (sun or shade) and their maintenance program. However, ay trained staff member can help you and the internet has several of helpful articles of choosing plants for your garden.

Some of the things to consider are as follows:

    Where do you want to have your garden?

    Can I afford the cost of tools, equipment, fertilizer and pesticide if the plants get infected?

    Will your flowers be exposed to mostly sun, mostly shade, or a bit of both conditions?

    Do you want your flowers to blossom this season, or every year?

    How much work are you willing to put into your garden?

    Do you want an organic garden?

    What type of flowers will go best with my theme or style of house?

Put in the Time

A garden takes work, not only to start it, but also to maintain it. If you are starting from scratch, you will need to put down soil, add rocks (or anything else), purchase manure, fertilizer and garden tools and get down and dirty. Planting a garden may take more than one weekend. However, after you have done the initial planting, the work is not done. You will need to constantly water your plants, adding fertilizer whenever necessary. You will also need to prune and tidy up your garden of any weeds, overgrown leaves or dead plants.

During the summer, some gardens will need watering every day, especially during those extra hot July and August months. Furthermore, garden care should be done in spring, summer and fall. If you only have a little time to spare in, say, the summer, stick to annuals which only last a season. If you want your garden to blossom every year and are prepared for the extra work, try perennials which will last several seasons.
