Gardening is such a huge subject, it can often be confusing to the novice gardener where to start.
In this basic gardening section, we will cover how plants are named, where to grow certain plants, soil types, what plants need to survive and basic tools that may be needed.
Plants want to grow and reproduce. If you get the environment right, your plants will reward you with vigorous growth, beautiful flowers or delicious fruit and vegetables.
Plants, in general, need four things in order to grow: heat, light, moisture and food. Deprive them of one of these and the plant will suffer, becoming sickly and liable to come under attack from pests and diseases.
