With Spring upon us, it's a great time to start planning and planting your summer fruit and vegetable garden here in Alliston. If you're new to gardening this can seem like a daunting task, but the effort involved is certainly worth the delicious fresh produce! Here are a few tips to help you get started:
1) Choose the style of planting that suits you and your yard best
There are many different types of gardens, including raised beds, square foot gardening, container, traditional rows, and so on. Do some research online to decide which will be best for you and your family based on the size of your yard and what you plan to plant.
2) Start small
It's exciting to plant many different types of fruits and vegetables your first year, but this can lead to disappointing outcomes. It's best to stick with a few plants and learn about how to care for each one for your first time around, then gradually add additional plants in future years to ensure you are getting the optimal results and the most delicious produce possible.
3) Select the right plants
You may be tempted to try growing the produce you enjoy most, but not all plants grow well in all regions. Check your hardiness zone to determine what will thrive in your region.
