Watering: One of the most common mistakes people make is watering too frequently or sparingly. Water as needed! Not by schedule. When i'ts time to water the soil should feel dry if you stick your finger down into it, and light in weight if it's in a container. Let your plants dry out between watering, then give them a good soaking.
Planting: All plants like a good, nutrient filled soil. Adding an organic compost when you plant will make a big difference! It will also lighten the soil and break up any clay that is common in this area. Use half garden soil, half compost when planting in beds, or a lighter potting soil mix in containers.
Fertilizing: Unfortunately there is no universal fertilizer that will provide the correct nutrients to all your plants. Certain plants like higher levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, or potassium. Well-fed plants are healthier, more productive, last longer, and are more beautiful.
