Before you dive headfirst into your gardening, it's important to understand what you're working with. Set yourself up for success by familiarising yourself with your plants, soil, and the specific needs of your outdoor space. Every garden is different. Take the time to research the types of plants that’ll thrive, and their individual requirements for sunlight, water, and care.
There’s loads of great advice out there. Use it to understand your garden's unique ecosystem, choose wisely and make the most of your space.
Watching your garden flourish under your care and knowledge will make you feel more in control, boosting your confidence as a gardener.
Invest in your tools
A gardener is nothing without their tools. Taking the time to perfect your collection will bolster your confidence in outdoor activities. There’s something truly comforting about knowing you have just the right gadget to get the job done.
Start with the basics. Shears, a shovel and fork, a hose and secateurs are all great investments for a beginner, and tools you’ll come back to time and time again. Consider clothing that’ll make the jobs easier too. A wide brim hat that’ll protect you from UV rays and a decent pair of gloves.
Our list of the best gardening tools is a great place to start planning your toolkit and find what’s best for you.
You can always add to your collection over time. When you do, opt for sturdy but lightweight tools that’ll help you work smarter not harder. Think ergonomically designed shears and stand up weeders that’ll keep back ache at bay, even after a long day on the tools.
Set a secure foundation
