How To Learn Gardening Well By Studying And Learning From Mistakes

We all learn from our failures, and gardening is one such art too, where you get to learn a lot from your failures. Now some of you may be old gardeners, and are in practice for years, and have already learnt a lot from your success and failures. May be you are ready to give gardening tuitions as well because you are confident; know when to grow what, what is the best compost for a soil and tree type etc. But there are newbie, who are trying their fresh hands on gardening, and need guides. They may meet hurdles when the saplings of a costly plant die just because they are sowed at the wrong settings. You may face many more hurdles that may be disheartening, yet if you leave gardening habits, then your mistakes will never let you learn the right things.

Thus you just need to follow your heart and the mind together with your earlier experiences. In a short time you will become a great gardener. You will be able to tell from the look and feel of a soil what is within, and how good the soil is to support a plant.

Why Plants Die In Nursery

You plant a tree, but the tree fails to grow. Now there can be various reasons for that, and being inexperienced, it may take you months and years to understand that where you went wrong. However there are common reasons, which new gardeners make. And, some of the more prominent reasons are:

  • You planted the tree in the wrong type of soil; the soil does not support the trees
  • The soil may be mixed with too much of fertilizers
  • The soil may have too much of moisture content, and not enough space for drainage resulting in the rotting of the newly formed roots, or total inhibition in root formation
  • May be the tree needed some hormonal aids to spring into life sooner, and it didn’t get that
  • There can be too much of salt in the soil, and you should know before using soil from an area
  • Too much of pesticides in the soil
  • You watered the soil too much
  • You didn’t add any compost at all to the soil
  • You sowed the seeds at the wrong season
  • The plant is not suited for your geographic area
  • The plant caught some infection or pest
  • You couldn’t break the dormancy of the seeds without hormonal sprays
  • These are the common causes, and then there are more causes which may lead to the same consequence of the plant not springing to life. But you should not be disheartened at that. As there are plenty of opportunities to try and learn, you must go for them. You can do a lot to help yourself become a good gardener.

Study A Good Gardening Guide

You may study a good gardening guide. You may find a book from a nearby book store, or get one from the internet too. Besides there are lots of high quality journals on the internet, that will tell you the knitty gritty facts of gardening, and will train you great to go for gardening just like a pro.

Know Your Garden Soil And Area

Before experimenting with plants, you must know what type of soil you are having at your garden and your locality. Gardening is a lot about soil. The right soil type, aided with the right fertilizer and medicinal aids if necessary can make a lovely green garden.

You do not have to be a chemistry teacher for that, but a little understanding of the soil chemistry do helps in gardening. If you know the soil type – dry or moist, the pH of the soil, the composition and proportion of sand, silt, clay etc, then it would be very easy for you to determine which plants would grow well in your garden. You may bring in soil from other good areas, and mix them with your garden soil as well.

Learn A Little About Plant Hormones And Medicines

It happens a lot of time, that a little spray of medicines or plant hormones are required to give that boost of growth to the sapling. Sometimes it’s the weather or the temperature that does not give the plant the perfect environment to grow. How good the soil be, and however good the compost be, the little aid of growing hormones may be required to kick start the growth process.

You may never know about these facts, without learning, reading and experimenting. Often it may happen, that you spray too little or much higher portion of the chemical, which may kill the plant or inhibit growth for many more days and months. But then again these are the ways you are learning, and you will learn from these mistakes only.

Follow What Others Are Doing

Following the gardening habits of other experienced gardeners will help you a lot. See what your neighbour is growing, how they are planting the trees, pruning the plants, and watering them. See the interval of adding fertilizers and pesticides. All these will help you understand it better. Ask them if you have a doubt. Your interest in gardening will make them feel good, and you both may want to plant some seeds together, and in the process may learn more.

Create Your Own Compost

You may create compost for gardening on your own. There will always be leftovers of food and vegetables. Skins and peels of veggies and fruits, rotten leftovers, rotting leaves and twigs found in your garden; all will contribute well for making great compost. You may collect them together and dig all of them in a pit in your garden soil, and then close the hole. After a month or two, the compost will be ready, and you may plant directly on that bed, or scoop out and use that soil to make soil for plant containers and plant beds in other parts of the garden.

Most importantly you must learn from your own mistakes, and also by seeing the mistakes of others. That is perhaps the best way to learn, as it gives you practical idea of how things are done.
