    When planting roses, pruning is crucial to keep the centre of the flower open, so sunshine can shine in. Careful pruning will keep the moisture out, and will prevent black spots and other blights from forming.

    We’ve been gardening sucessfully for 6 years now i find that most of the time the garden either gets too much water or not enough (like tomatoes once established only need two inches of water a week otherwise they wilt)

  8. Don’t be cheap with soil! It is worth it to pay a little more for the good stuff.

    I do raised bed gardening in galvanized metal water troughs, washtubs, and trash cans – they look adorable and the results are pretty good. I can stand up while gardening, the beds are nice and warm, weeds are minimal, and animals don’t eat my goodies. The trash cans are buried in the ground – they’re great for plants that need deep roots. Make sure to add drainage holes – I also like to elevate my troughs and tubs on pavers or broken concrete.

  9. Sadly I live in a flat & we don’t have a garden…Thanks…

  10. If you kill something keep trying. It takes time to figure it out sometimes. Also, I second the previous comment about compost!

    Make a drip feeder using an old soda bottle.Just puncture some holes in it (a barbeque skewer works great), and then plant it next to the young plant. The bottle will enable a slow release of water near the roots.

  15. I have a black thumb! I did used to help my dad pick stuff from the garden when I was little and he did a lot of composting.

  16. I love using compost.

  17. Weed as you go, composting will lead to volunteers (last year we had watermelon), only plant what you’ll really use. Thanks for giving. Besos Sarah.

    My tip is to try to weed daily so the weeds don’t become overbearing.

    When you are finished your growing season, take you last one or two grass cutting clippings and cover your garden. This will help insulate the soil and add additional nutrients from the composting of the clippings.

    I am not a big gardener, I don’t have any tips or ideas.

  31. I am not good at gardening so my tip is, let the kids help you out. It makes for great memories and they love checking in on the garden and weeding it.

  32. I have a black thumb and have zero plants in my home and have never even attempted a garden.

  33. Water at night

    I always like using compost. And keep the weeds out of the garden.
