Principles of Gardening
Essentials of an Ornamental Garden:
In developing your garden you want somewhere that is relaxing but also stimulates the senses, where space and nature reach a happy equilibrium. creating that balance between the elements of the garden, such as the paving, lawn, trees, shrubs, and flowers, is crucial to the end result. Color is an essential design element and flowers are the primary choice for color but it can be difficult to maintain interest year-round. Small gardens are especially difficult to plan. Good foliage and flowers with a long season are vital. A simple garden design will have all of the ingredients for success: an enclosed area of trees and hedges, a space for relaxation, and a view so that the garden appears larger and more inviting.
Essentials of the Edible Garden:
Most gardeners want to grow their own fruit, vegetables, and herbs for a variety of different reasons. One is a the pleasure of eating garden-fresh produce, which has a fullness of flavor that is lost in store-bought food. The earliest gardens evolved out of a purely functional need to have useful plants close at hand. A huge range of vegetables, fruits, and herbs can be grown. New and improved cultivars are continually being introduced. Vegetables tend to be relatively short-term crops, because most grow rather fast and are harvested before maturity. The ideal soil for growing vegetables is loam, a mixture of clay, sand and silt in more or less equal parts and containing humus with a pH between 6.5 and 7.0. Soils also need to be fertile, this can mean adding fertilizers or other forms of additives to improve the soil before planting. Fruit, vegetable, and herbs not only taste good but also can look good if planted in a well laid-out design.
