50 Essential gardening tips and tricks you need to know


I was just surfing the internet and read some articles I would like to share with those interesting in digging into their soil and bringing some beauty to the season we know as Spring.

Just remember to know where the sun hits and where it doesn’t and plant according to the need of each plant. There are obviously plants that need more sun light than others. There are also plants that although they need to grow outdoors, they don’t need much sunlight at all. Know your plants needs and you will see just how beautiful your garden can be. Happy Planting!

Oh, the peace I still find in my garden

I wake in the morning to gaze upon my garden

The peace I’ve always felt still remains

No matter the pain from what ails me

A glance at my garden soothes me

I think of all I’ve done and what still needs to be done

My tosses about plans and ideas

There’s such an excitement that comes with each thought

Sometimes tattered and torn from the harsh cold winter

Sometimes wilting from the heat of the sun

But when all is right and the sun isn’t choking the life out of my flowers

What you see in my garden brings a certain calmness

A peace and serenity that is desired by all

It’s the way I like to both start and end my day

Oh, how I just love the peace found in my garden

Each petal of each flower opens their arms waiting

Waiting for the bee to come and take their sweet sap and run

Waiting for the sun to shine to help them grow stronger

Waiting for the water to fall to quench their deep thirst

Waiting for the night to fall so they can rest their petals til the next morn.
