No matter if you are new to gardening or not, avoiding mistakes can help you get the best crops and the nicest flowers, for you, your family and your friends to enjoy.
We could say that learning how to garden is not as easy as it may seem. Although there are plenty of books available and a lot of information on the internet, you still need to work a lot and gain experience in order to get the best results possible.
A good advice would be to avoid planting vegetables and fruits which do not grow well in your area, to avoid the disappointment of seeing your garden die soon after you took the great effort of planting it.
At any rate, another thing to avoid is planting a garden that is simply too large, and very hard to take care of. The best way is to start small, and then build up your garden every year, depending on your possibilities.
Mono-cropping can be another mistake that should certainly be avoided. And companion planting should be applied. Thus, there are certain flowers which deter harmful insects, and help vegetables and fruits develop better. A little research before doing the actual work is worth the effort, and applying a quality garden compost will provide a lot of benefits in keeping the ground with moisture.
