Are you looking forward to the Knoxville Home and Garden Show? Even if it’s cold outside, it’s never too early to start thinking about how you’ll utilize your Knoxville home garden area for the upcoming growing season.
Be creative with your garden by using every inch of space available. The key is to work with what you have and not try to squeeze too many things in.
Here are some tips to maximize your garden.
If you’ve never had a garden before, it’s tempting to start with a bang by planting more seeds than you need. It seems easy, right? Throw a few seeds in the ground and you’re a gardener. It can be a lot of work and take some planning.
Instead of collecting a large number of plants to get your balcony or home garden started, start with just a few of your favorite vegetables.
It’s important to start small, especially if you’re new to gardening. If you find you can keep up with the weeding, plant some later season crops and expand.
Growing your crops vertically will help you make the most of the tiny garden space. To make your own vertical garden, you can use lattice, bamboo, pallets, netting, and rope besides trellises.
When crops are grown vertically, harvesting is also easier. Furthermore, some trailing crops provide shade and privacy to an outdoor place, which is ideal if you want to improve your landscaping. Harvesting is also more convenient because you don’t have to bend over to collect your produce.
Some vegetables need more space to flourish, while others thrive in a small pot or container. If you have a tiny garden, choosing crops that provide the most yield despite the space constraints makes sense.
Planting crops that grow too large, such as cabbages and cauliflower, is not a good idea. As these plants mature, they will need many feet of space between them.
Carrots, garlic, lettuce, radishes, spinach, and any form of the vertically growing crop are examples of high-yield crops suited for small gardens.
If you have the space, plant your vegetables in beds rather than rows. Planting crops in beds removes the need to walk between rows, which saves space. Growing food and beautiful plants together can help you make the most of your garden space. When you only plant a few types of crops, you may wind up wasting a lot of space.
It pays to set aside a little place for relaxation in any garden, no matter how tiny. Add a small bench or chair to your garden arrangement to enjoy your hard work or read a book. Being around a growing space is rejuvenating.
You know, buyers love homes with ready made gardens and nice landscaping. If you’re considering selling your Knoxville home, having a nice garden space is definitely a positive selling point especially if it’s the growing season. Spring is coming!
