Now that you have decided to make your own garden, the first instinct is, “but I have never made a garden before. How do I set about planting it?”
Do not worry; this has been the problem of gardeners down the millenniums. Once they know that they are going to take up with the effort of gardening, their enthusiasm soon leads them to dream of flowering hedges, shrubs, herbs and trees blooming in their garden throughout the year.
The first season of your new garden is going to be the most important one, making the difference between whether you have it in you to maintain a garden, or whether you are going to think, “no, gardening is definitely not my forte, it takes too much of effort and time which I can ill afford.”
If you have that mental outlook, you may as well stop reading this book now. If you are still reading it, then you are going to get important tips, techniques, and points which you need to keep in mind when planting your brand-new garden in its first season.
