Important considerations when planning garden planting
Before starting to plant your garden it is important to consider the garden environment, both money and time can be wasted by selecting incorrect planting for the garden conditions.
When planning to plant a garden essentials considerations include:
- Soil conditions
Some plants such as Acers and Rhododendrons prefer acidic soil conditions
It is important to understand your local environment, for example how hard the first frosts can be, how heavy the snow can be
For areas with typically very dry summers careful consideration needs to be applied to the types of planting selected
- Wet Ground
In contrast to the aboe ground with ppor drainage, or clay soil can prevent the roots of plants from breathing. However there are some plants which relish damp conditions or raised beds can provide a useful alternative
Where the amount of sunlight is restricted to a couple of hours per day sun-loving plants will struggle and growth limited
Other factors to consider include the type or style of garden, the time available for maintenance and the purpose of the garden, for example it going to be for cut flowers, vegetable growing, an area for children, a plant lovers garden or a combination of things. Such considerations impact upon the style of planting selected and the overall scheme.
