Garden Planning

December 20, 2009 § Leave a comment

It turns out that gardening is more complicated than just buying plants, sticking them into the ground and making sure they have enough water.  It turns out that if you want your plants to survive, you needs to consider the soil type, the amount of sunlight, hardiness, and number of other factors in plant selection, placement, and care. 

With this in mind, I purchased a few books- You Grow Girl by Gayla Trail and Garden Anywhere by Alys Fowler-  to help make better informed decisions.  Sure, cacti won’t thrive in Western Washington while blueberries and moss do, but it would be helpful to know why.
