Spring is in the air, and it’s the perfect time to start an edible garden! But if you don’t have a green thumb, you may be wondering where to begin. Check out these beginner’s gardening tips.

  • Choose a sunny location; most edible plants need at least six hours of direct sunlight.

  • Equip yourself with the proper tools, including a sturdy pair of gloves.

  • Potted containers are a great way to go, especially if you are short on space.

  • Test your soil to determine what nutrients you may need to add.

  • Seeding trays will help get your seeds growing. You can also use eggshells or citrus rinds to start them off, then transfer the plants to the pot once they’ve sprouted.

  • Make sure there is a water source close to your garden. Early morning is the optimal time to water plants.

  • Start a gardening journal. Document what you plant each year, when you plant the seeds, and their harvest dates. This will help you with future crops.

It might take a while to get the hang of maintaining your garden. But if you give it time, your gardening skills are sure to grow!
