It is said that these are the most common gardening mistakes. Somehow, everyone who dealt with gardening surely made it. Most mistakes are made from lack of experience or the desire to make plants grow faster.
1. Watering excessively – more water doesn’t mean that plants feel better, on the contrary. Learn about each plant’s needs. Best time for watering is when the soil is dry on the surface, ideally every two or three days.
2. Exotic plants – they really make quite an impression and capture the admiration of all your guests, but first make sure if the soil and your garden condition are perfect for them. Sometimes they start growing very nice but they wither in the end. Anyway, winter is a big challenge for them and only a few make it.
3. Wrong climate – depending on the climate conditions, you should know when to plant every flower in your backyard.
4. Excess fertilizer – like in the case of watering, soil fertilization should be done carefully adapted to every plant needs.
5. Invasive plants – when you inform yourself about what you want to plant in the yard, make sure that the surface is enough for plant’s maturity to have no surprises. Some plants can grow more than the space you choose.
6. Planting obsession – you don’t have to make an obsession on every plant you see because it can be expensive and sometimes it requires more time to care.
7. Insects destruction – not all insects in the garden are harmful, so you have inform which insects are good for your plants. Some insects eat the others.
8. Agglomeration – don’t overcrowd the garden because plants need air and space, as well as light. Even if it seems hard to believe plants can be stressed and crowded space may be a reason.
9. Neglecting weeds – don’t forget to remove weeds between flowers, whether you choose to use only one glove or more utensils.
10. New seeds in old ground – even if you add a layer of soil over old weeds doesn’t mean that they won’t find a way to the surface. Take care to remove them with root again and fertilize the soil before planting another flower.
