What Kind of Garden is Best for Me? (part 1)


Posted by Green Thumb Gardener | Posted in Green Thumb Gardening | Posted on 25-02-2012

There are many different types of gardening.  Some people will prefer the quiet tranquility of a flower garden.  Others will enjoy the satisfaction of growing their own food in a vegetable garden.

Still others will prefer growing their plants in containers for the purpose of saving space, being able to easily relocate their plants, or for other various reasons. We’re going to take a look at some of the most common types of gardening, and the pros and cons of each type.

This will hopefully help make it easier for you to choose which type of gardening you’d prefer to tackle, and might help keep you from making the wrong decision.

The Type of Garden You Choose Will Depend on Several Factors

If you live in an apartment, it may be impossible for you to have a large vegetable garden, no matter how much you may desire one.  If you work 60 hours per week, caring for a very large rose garden might be a little too much to handle.

If you’re confined to a wheelchair, taking care of a complex outdoor garden might be a bit beyond your capabilities. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How much space do I have available for gardening?
  • How much time do I have to care for my plants?
  • How physically capable am I to care for my garden?
  • How much money do I have available to start my garden?
  • What is the main purpose for my garden?

You need to look at all of these factors and weigh them against the available gardening options.  You can look at the various types of gardening, and start by marking off the ones you’re not interested in.

Then you can eliminate those that would be impractical or impossible for you to take on.  Then you can look at your remaining options and decide which one you’d prefer to try. Of course, you don’t have to be confined to a single choice.

You could easily combine a few different types of gardening into your system.  But the main point is that you should be careful not to take on something you’re going to regret later.

Over the next little while, we will continue this series, and link to the different parts here…

Hi Green Thumb Gardeners!

I just learned of a new e-guide that is available for gardeners everywhere…

Indoor Gardening Bible

Here’s a little something about it:

Indoor gardening and urban homesteading is on the rise. With flavorless “conventional” fruits and veggies in the supermarkets and rising prices of organic food, people are taking things into their own hands!

Knowing where to start, what equipment to buy and what techniques to use can be overwhelmingly confusing. The Indoor Gardening Bible consolidates tried and true expert information into one extremely detailed but EASY to follow, step by step system. The result is a whopping 137 pages jam-packed with everything you need to know to get your indoor garden started today – growing exceptionally flavorful and nutrient rich vegetables. Extremely useful bonus guides included.

I think you’ll find it quite valuable to you, as you explore new ways to exercise your Green Thumb!
