If you are careful, and use appropriate gardening techniques, it will show. It proves you care about growing healthy plants. That is an admirable thing. Just as with any hobby or skill, there is always room for improvement. Here are some suggestions that can help.
Pick your plants with an eye to maximize the yield you can get. A hybrid designed for your weather, and resistant to local diseases, will give a better yield than non-hybrids.
Try planting your plants in flower pots first, then transferring them to your garden once they have had a bit of time to grow. Once the plant is hardy enough, plant it in your garden. It also lets you have tighter control over the planting periods in your garden. Using this method, you can remove the mature plants, then put the seedlings in their places.
If your plants have a powdery mildew, don’t use expensive chemicals on them. Try mixing a little liquid soap with some baking soda in water. Spray this on your plants once a week until the mildew disappears. Baking soda will bring no damage to your plants, and will treat the mildew in a gentle and efficient manner.
If you’re growing veggies in the garden, they need to be in a spot that lets them get about six hours of sun daily. Most vegetables that can be grown need that much sun to grow well and quickly. Some flowers also have the same needs.
Fertilizing your garden is essential. Manure can help grow plants, but to eliminate risk of pathogens, try using a type of commercially composted product. You have many different choices for fertilizer; choose whichever is best-suited to your plants but definitely use one.
