When considering growing new plants in our gardens, most beginner gardeners will always be wondering if there is a perfect time of year to purchase seeds. The quick and simple answer to this question is no, there is never a perfect time to purchase seeds. Whenever you head out to a garden centre or supermarket, if you see some seeds you like then always consider purchasing them if your budget allows. However, we will always tell you that you should research the plant you wish to grow before purchasing the seeds. This way you know what time of year is most suitable for purchasing them. You should always purchase your seeds if you are set on the plant a month or so before, just so you have them ready. As once planting season comes around these may become popular and run out of stock. Every plant is different so the perfect time to buy their seeds will be different.
There is a huge misconception about gardening that it is all about flowers and caring for plants. But this is not the case, gardening is not all flowers. Gardening is also about wildlife, all of the animals which we can find. You do not need to have an interest in flowers to become a gardener. A simple interest in animals and caring for wildlife can make you a gardener. Wildlife needs caring for just as much as what the flowers which we plant do. It can be as simple as leaving some food out for birds or insects. To creating a potential home for some animals to live in throughout the winter months. Taking part and encouraging others to take part in caring for our wildlife does not only grow us as a person but saves the environment at the same time. Everything and everyone plays a part in keeping our environment healthy and strong.
