We are talking with Joe Van Beek at the Mayflower Greenhouse in Hobart about gardening tips to make sure you at home have a successful growing season.
Some may think that you just need to throw in some dirt and add water to your plants but there is more that needs to be done to make sure you have a successful growing season.
We are talking about the types of plant food you should add and how frequently you should add the types of plant food.
For your lawn, fertilizing is important as well as weed control.
To help prevent weeds in your garden you can add mulch but you don't want to put too much because year after year, the mulch can puild up around the trunk roots of some vegetation and promote rot.
It is also important to plan the way you want to set up your landscaping plan. You want to put certain plants at specific spots, making sure no plant overdominates the other because one of the plants could die.
