Gardening Gifts for Your Green-Thumbed Friends

Just about everybody has at least one acquaintance who is a gardening fancier. You know, that individual who passes every waking moment perfecting their garden. Well, when it comes time to giving that person a present, it can quite often be a challenge to think of exactly what they would like. However, it's always possible to come up with something that will suit them well, so here are some ideas of things that you should consider.

The primary type of gardening present is something that will make their gardening easier. Sometimes this could be a gardening tool. Many gardeners spend lots of time executing repetitious activities, such as planting bulbs or pruning their bushes. While you can get these jobs done with basic tools, it's possible to get them done easier and quicker with specialty tools. You can get a bulb planter, a pruner, a lawn aerator, or any number of other handy gardening tools. So if you hear your friend complaining about how difficult a certain task is, you can make it easier by getting the right gift.

Mens Gardening Clogs Are an Excellent Gift

The next type of gardening gift

The next type of gardening gift is to get them some sort of seeds, bulb, or plants to add to their garden. This can be a tricky one, since there are so many factors in play. You don't want to get them something that is easily found in your area. You also don't want to cause them a burden if your plant takes hours of work per day to maintain. Usually it is best to do this only if you have explicitly heard them state their desire for that plant. Also, if you go overseas, a plant from some exotic corner of the world could make a good gift. If you aren't sure, it could be a good idea to ask them before you buy a plant. It may take away the surprise factor, but at least you know your gift will be appreciated.

First Time Gardener Tips

Tips to get a first time gardener started on the right path

The easiest form of gardening is vegetable gardening. It is one of the best forms of gardening as well considering it produces something that you can use in your own kitchen and your own meals.

It is very easy to start your own vegetable garden and you do not need much in order to start. Pick out an area in your backyard that you would like to become your own veggie garden. Next thing to do would be to put down some planting soil or if you have some good soil as it is to start digging rows with your spade. Each row should contain its own vegetable in most situations. Put the seeds of the vegetables you choose to buy, which you can pick up at a local nursery or large home improvement store, and recover them with soil. The rows do not need to be too deep only a few inches. Be sure to follow any directions that are on the seeds packet as each vegetable varies. Then from there be sure to care for your vegetables for the months they grow and reap the benefits when they are ripe!

If you do not know what to grow, just think of what you would like to be able to harvest and eat from your yard. There are many different vegetables out there that many people grow at home such as artichokes, bean, beet, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, celery, corn, cucumber, eggplant, garlic, leek, lettuce, okra, onion, parsnip, pea, peppers, potato, pumpkin, radish, spinach, squash, tomato, turnip, and even watermelon. There are numerous different vegetables you can grow in your own backyard. Check with your neighbors as to what they are having success with in your area.

It does not even take much space to have your own vegetable garden, as you determine how much space you need by how many vegetables you would like to grow. Most vegetables need to be grown about two feet distance between one type of vegetable and another but some can literally be grown right on top of each other.

Be sure to pick a vegetable that is suitable to where you live and where it will be growing. Also keep in mind each vegetable may be best suited for growing in either spring or fall as most plants prefer one season to another. This is due to them receiving a certain amount of precipitation, sunlight, and some other factor during certain seasons.

Also be sure whenever you are reaping the benefits of your months of growing and caring that you do in fact pick a healthy vegetable that is not infested with pests or mold. Vegetables should be au natural but only to a point that does not make you or anyone eating your vegetable soup sick.

So if you are looking for a healthy addition to not only your kitchen but your life, take a closer look at vegetable gardening as it is one the easiest ways to start your own garden. Do not forget anyone can do it!
