Growing your own garden can be one of the most relaxing things to do in the warmer parts of the year. Watching plants you’ve reared from mere seeds sprout from the ground and grow into beautiful, branchy blossoms can be really therapeutic and calming. Not to mention all of the beautiful bouquets you’ll be able to pick for centerpieces, or all of the fresh veggies you’ll be able to use for salads or fresh sauces!
The key to a flourishing garden? That would be good soil. Without good soil, even the best gardener won’t be able to make anything grow.
What makes good soil? It has to be fertile. Sure, you could buy fertilizer from the store, but you can’t always be too sure what’s actually in there. There could be unnatural chemicals that you wouldn’t want for your plants. So, why not make your own? By doing this, you’ll also save a good chunk of change on expensive packaged fertilizer.
Making your own fertilizer sounds like it could be really difficult, but it’s really just a few steps away. All you have to do is make a compost bin to keep in your backyard!
Having a compost bin is also a great way of putting to use the nutrients in your food waste instead of tossing them into a landfill.
