Gardening is an art. An art that allows you to learn little by little, at your own pace. Plants are generally in no hurry, except for herbaceous plants and some trees.

A mistake that we all make (some, more than once and twice) is to buy plants that are either too big for the place where we want to put them, or they are too cold or, on the contrary, hot for the climate we have. How to avoid it?

The ideal is to go to buy the plants from the nurseries in our area and choose those that are being grown outside the greenhouses

. Thus, we will make sure to acquire those that really endure the weather. If we have doubts with the size that they will acquire as adults, we will ask the managers.

Buy some basic tools

Every gardener or gardener, regardless of the number of plants they have, is going to need some basic tools and elements. They are as follows:

  • Gardening gloves: so that the work is clean, they will be very useful to us.
  • Watering can: I recommend buying the 5l one, since it allows you to water several plants at once.
  • Pots: they can be made of plastic or clay. We will choose the ones that we like the most depending on our budget.
  • Dispenser: very practical when we have to treat the plants with an insecticide or we want to fertilize them with liquid fertilizers.
  • Substratum: essential for plants to grow. Learn More.
  • Fertilizer: during spring and summer we have to pay them. For more information Click here.

As we mentioned, plants live on their own time scale. We will be observing them daily and little by little we will know when they grow, when they bloom, when they are hibernating, etc. In addition, daily observation makes it possible to detect any signs of pest or disease, which is very important to get them back.

Equally, we will have to provide them with the care they need and when they need it. We will have to water them, generally, two or three times a week in summer and a little less the rest of the year; and fertilize them throughout the growing season. Also, from time to time we will have to transplant them to a larger pot so that they can continue their development.
