Alright, so you are a gardening starter and are at a loss what are the guidelines you should follow? Well, gardening may be a demanding job for someone who doesn’t like it. However, for someone who does gardening as a hobby, it is great fun. Here are some important tips for the people who have recently started with gardening.
Just like the human body, plants too need many nutrients for their healthy growth. Calcium definitely finds its place among the top nutrients for the plants. While most of the composts available in the market contain all the necessary nutrients, but for a bigger garden everyone may not be able to afford them. So what are your choices? Well, if you want to supply the plants with necessary nutrients like calcium, you can do it at home with the things you usually throw away. For instance, you can crush the eggshells in a blender and mix it with the soil. Eggshells are a great source of calcium and they don’t cost you a dime extra. There are some parts of the vegetables that you chop off and throw away. For instance, the vegetable stalks always find the dustbin. Now, instead of trashing them, blend and mix them with the soil. They provide a lot of nutrients to the plants.
While you are at it, make sure that your pets learn the manners of garden use. Discourage them from trampling the plants and defecating on the wrong places. The excrement of the animals does make up for compost, but it may hamper the beauty of the garden and make it smelly too.
