Whether you are just getting started with gardening or you have done it for years, there are plenty of tips and tricks to gardening that can help make your experience easier.

Use Toilet Paper Rolls

I know this seems crazy, but those leftover toilet paper rolls you have can be used to create small planters that are biodegradable. The toilet paper rolls will work best for getting your herbs or small seedlings started so that you can move them to a larger pot or garden area when they are ready.

Make Sure You Have the Right Spot Picked Out

When it comes to choosing the space for your garden, you will want to make sure you have a space where your fruits and vegetables will get enough sun. Since many of these plants need at least 6-7 hours of full sun, keep an eye on the yard to see where the sun hits the most and plan to create your garden there.

When you are choosing a space for your garden, you will also want to be sure you have easy access to water. If you are using a hose, you will want to make sure you have a hose pipe that can reach so you can properly water your garden and give your plants a drink as they need it.

Follow zoning guides. There are many resources available where you can see what zone you are in. The zone you are in will make a difference on how well your garden will do and what will grow best in your area. 

Add Mulch

If you add some mulch around each plant of your garden, the mulch will act as a barrier and help reduce the number of weeds that decide to pop up. 

Mulch will also help keep moisture into the ground, so you won’t have to water your garden as much.

Use Leftover Veggies or Produce to Get Started

If you regularly buy fruits and veggies from your local market or grocery store, there are a few different fruits and vegetables that you can regrow yourself from any leftover kitchen scraps that you have.

  • Lettuce
  • Herbs like cilantro and basil 
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Avocados
  • Potatoes
  • Pineapple, peaches and plums
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Peppers
  • Tomatoes

These are just a few of the veggies that you can regrow from your kitchen scraps. You will want to do a bit of research to see the best way to get the plants started before you just put the leftovers in the ground.

Get Creative When It Comes to Space

If you don’t have a lot of space to work with, there are a lot of creative ways you can still have a garden. One of the best ways is to use large planters, you can repurpose a shoe or shower rack to grow herbs and spices, you can also purchase space-saving containers to help you save room. Don’t be afraid to get creative and try different objects or storage items to plant your mini garden!

The Paper Towel Trick

If you travel or often forget to water your plants a lot, there is one paper towel trick that might save you. Take a glass of water and set one end of a rolled-up paper towel inside of the water and place the other end of the paper towel into the soil of your small planter. The paper towel will soak up and transfer the water from the glass to the dirt helping keep your plants watered.

These are just a few tips and tricks to gardening that can come in handy for new and experienced gardeners.

    If you have children, start by planting some vegetables, such as salad vegetables. My children are a lot more willing to try and enjoy eating the vegetables they have helped to grow or grown themselves.

  • Iain maciver 27th April 2020 at 1:10 PM

    this would be amazing to win

    • Heather Hibbert 28th April 2020 at 11:30 AM

    • Margaret Gallagher 2nd May 2020 at 10:23 AM

      Make a plan – then do little bits – dont try to do everything at once

  • amy Simpson 27th April 2020 at 1:21 PM

    Always sort seeds/bulbs into order of planting,cut grass regularily,and keep on top of weeding

  • Lorraine Williams 27th April 2020 at 1:46 PM

    Even without a lot of space you can still start to grow in pots and children love to see their seeds grow in to plants.

  • Gill Barwood 27th April 2020 at 1:46 PM

    My tip is to try some new things, as lockdown makes it more difficult to get hold of seeds, compost, plants etc. So I have raided my spice rack and have sown mustard and fenugreek seeds in a little tray as microgreens, which is something you can do indoors with kids whether you have a garden or not. Also try sowing saved seeds if its hard to find bought ones. I sowed 20 seeds from inside a cherry tomato, and now have 19 little plants! It’s not only economical, but it helps kids see where seeds come from so is a lot more fun.

  • Sheena Batey 27th April 2020 at 1:46 PM

    Little and often so you don’t end up crippled from trying to do too much and give up

  • Peter Watson 27th April 2020 at 2:23 PM

    Set achievable goals in bite-size chunks,not trying to do it all at once.

    • sarah morris 24th May 2020 at 12:41 PM

      Make a plan then keep on top. Of it

  • Solange 27th April 2020 at 2:24 PM

    Decide what you’d like to grow, choose a location, invest in basic garden tools and plant with care.

  • Lindsey Stuart 27th April 2020 at 2:55 PM

    Painting the fence, sheds and gates are a great start to getting the garden summer ready! It looks super refreshed, cut the grass (if you have any) at a high level to save burning the grass. Wash your garden pots so they are shining clean for potting some pretty plants 🙂

    • Amanda tanner 13th May 2020 at 4:27 PM

      I enjoy growing my plants from seeds to see them grow. Even starting with a grow bag to plant seeds in is a start.

  • Annabel Greaves 27th April 2020 at 3:01 PM

  • bev 27th April 2020 at 5:03 PM

    Identify which plants need shade and which need sun. No good planting fruit in the shade then waiting for it to ripen in the sun!

  • ADEINNE TONNER 27th April 2020 at 6:06 PM

    My tip is to have goals and don’t over do it all in one day

  • GooderDan 27th April 2020 at 6:12 PM

    Don’t worry about the results just try a range of seeds and see what happens!

  • Fiona jk42 27th April 2020 at 9:31 PM

    If you buy one those potted basil plants from the supermarket, you can use it to grow dozens of large basil plants. Take the plants out of the pot, and carefully separate them into individual plants, then plant each in its own pot of compost. Put on a sunny windowsill, and water weekly or more frequently if the compost dries out. You can move the pots outside once the night temperature is over 12 degrees C.

  • Hayley Atkins 27th April 2020 at 11:40 PM

  • Harry G 28th April 2020 at 11:03 AM

  • Debbie Burfoot 28th April 2020 at 1:59 PM

  • Vanessa EARLE 28th April 2020 at 2:28 PM

    Just get planting and don’t let the seeds dry out, keep them watered!

  • Denise S 28th April 2020 at 3:12 PM

    do a plan and start with a small achievable goal , otherwise its too overwhelming , maybe a small herb bed is a good start , so that it is useful achievable and spurs you on to do other things.

  • PAULINE HILL 28th April 2020 at 4:48 PM

  • Danika Lloyd 28th April 2020 at 7:54 PM

    Grow the things that will save you the most money

  • Caroline H 28th April 2020 at 9:02 PM

    Before you even start think carefully about how you want your garden to work for you and what you want from it. That will inform how you plan it (e.g. you want a veg patch, childrens’ play area and drying area you’ll have to plan it in a way that your veg and washing isn’t in the firing line of balls, feet etc.)

  • ellie spider 28th April 2020 at 10:06 PM

    start with something small and simple like daffs for flowers or strawberries / potatoes for edibles

  • Caroline Tinsley 1st May 2020 at 12:16 PM

    Two years ago I moved to a house with a garden after 20 years of living with just a small yard. I didn’t have a clue where to start, so I decided to work with what was already here and get to grips with that first. After a lot of googling and YouTube I now know how to look after all the plants that were already here.

  • judy kennedy 1st May 2020 at 12:48 PM

  • William Gould 3rd May 2020 at 8:02 AM

  • Mark Fridlington 9th May 2020 at 10:15 AM

  • Jodie W 13th May 2020 at 6:20 AM

    Just do a small section at a time, bit by bit it will come together.

    • Victoria Easton 23rd May 2020 at 5:15 PM

      Have open ideas as plants have a mind of their own and make sure that you give them the climate they like, it really makes a difference!

    I would say make a plan and set achievable things to complete and just enjoy being in the garden.

  • Susan Willshee 14th May 2020 at 10:06 PM

    if you are a new gardener don’t rely on seeds to fill your garden. These take a while to propagate and need constant attention for the first few weeks. Start with plug plants from garden centres or local garden shops. Once you have begun to fill the garden with more stable plants, then you can begin to think about backfilling the gaps with seedlings

  • Simon Bloomer 17th May 2020 at 11:51 AM

    What a great way to get the kids interested in gardening

    plan ahead

    Break everything down, do a little bit each day so you don’t become overwhelmed

  • Karen Barrett 20th May 2020 at 8:02 AM

    Use whatever containers you have, I have an old water tank and mesh wallpaper baskets that make fabulous wall troughs

  • Rita Nardone 22nd May 2020 at 8:15 AM

    This would be nice for when we eventually move in to our own house

    Start small and get some advice from someone who know what they are doing.

  • Katrina Adams 23rd May 2020 at 11:59 AM

    My top tip is to just pick a small part of your garden and get started. That’s the hardest part, but it’s quite addictive once you start seeing things grow.

  • Jessica Barber 23rd May 2020 at 1:03 PM

    Start small – the whole garden might feel overwhelming so focus on a small area and tackle that, before moving on to the rest!

  • Laura Pritchard 23rd May 2020 at 1:54 PM

    I find it easier to start from scratch rather than undo what’s already there & make it better. And, if in doubt, the answer is always “gravel it”!

  • Michelle Ptak 23rd May 2020 at 4:43 PM

    I think getting the area your wanting to plant in ready first is a good place to start. Raised beds are great, then move on to picking your seeds. Cant beat easy growers such as peas. They never make it back to the house.

    Start with letting the kids playing digging to help prepare the earth

    Think about what you want to grow and how you’re going to grow it, check out the light your garden gets at different times of the day to plan where you’re going to site your plants according to their needs and start with something simple to boost your confidence

    Start small. Maybe with some colourful plants or some herbs then as you get more confident add more

    Find out where the sun hits your garden and when so you can plan the best place for plants to go depending on whether they like full sun or shade for example. You’ll also need to know which direction your garden faces and the type of soil.

    Make that most of what opportunities you have:- As these can vary for each individual / family, etc. If no garden there may be the opportunity of perhaps plant pots, window box, community garden (Volumteering), assisting a friend at their allotment, etc.

    Garden Centre likely to have staff that can provide information. Speaking to them can assist with planning.

    Set small achieveable aims / goals. Particularly with or for children. Perhaps start with herbs. For children to see results of their efforts can be such a delight!

    Best Wishes!
