When it comes to planting seeds, not only do you need the most basic and obvious things, but it is also extremely important to know when and how to do it. Surely, if you have planted seeds, they will not always turn out as you had thought, right? Or they rot, they don’t finish growing, they grow and fall and they don’t finish blooming, etc. It is necessary to take into account many elements that are the basis to bring the flowering of the seeds to a good port.

By knowing the basics before you start planting the seeds, you will avoid problems later and, in the process, you will save both money and time.

Instructions for planting plants in the garden

  1. Seeds are the basis for a plant to grow. The life of your new plant. There are many options to achieve it. From the outset, the simplest: buy the seeds. You will find the seeds in garden shops, florists, nurseries, garden centers and supermarkets.
  2. Another option, take the seeds yourself. This will depend on whether it is from another plant and flower, or if you do it with vegetables (we will tell you about it later).
  3. Be that as it may, the seeds in general (of whatever type, if bought or taken from your own vegetable), it will be vital that you take good care of it. It is necessary for the seeds to be stimulated and grow. If it does not grow and develop well, neither the vegetable, fruit, plant, etc. will come out. Therefore, the before, during and after is very important.
  4. It will be necessary to take into account how much water you administer to it, very careful not to water it and it dries up and dies) and the same, if you abuse it and there is excess. It will rot or choke and fail to grow. will die
  5. You should also take into consideration what type of seed it is. Because such a fruit or such a vegetable is not the same, nor one flower or another. Therefore, you always have to find out what you are going to plant.
  6. Something basic and vital so that the planting goes correctly and does not end up giving you an upset is knowing what you want to plant and of course, when is the right time to plant. This is very important. The reason? Each plant and/or vegetable has its own season. There are those that come out in winter, others in spring, in summer and those that you can take advantage of now, which are in autumn (we are talking about Spain).
  7. Some examples of vegetables that can be planted for this month and those to come (we repeat, bearing in mind that we are in Spain) would be the following: artichokes, onions, celery, radishes, broccoli, lettuce, cauliflower etc. Virtually almost all green leafy vegetables.
  8. It is very important to have some control and carry out a good sowing if you do not have the basic knowledge, simply by observing. Check how the soil is, you will see if it needs moisture, water it or not. If you need more or less light, the vital nutrients so that the plant ends up blooming and maturing.
  9. Another important detail, be very careful and always remove the weeds. It is quite common that, with the sowing land, different weeds appear. Don’t let them grow. As soon as you see them, pull them out. If you leave them, they can end up killing your crop.
  10. The same, very important, with possible bad bugs, snails, snails, ants, flies, aphids and various pests. Attack the problem as soon as possible. If you leave it or not take a good look at it, you can get the fearsome scare of starting to see the flowering of your crop and from one day to the next, not seeing anything because the plague has finished everything.
  11. Other tricks so that it does not cost you so much to take care of your plants is to try, as far as possible, to place the plants together according to their needs. We explain it better. For example, some plants that needs a lot of sun and little water (to give an example) such as cacti. And you put in the same place, plants that need a lot of humidity or abundant watering but that do not withstand the sun very well because they burn.
  12. Maybe you really like the combination of them together, but it will cost you a lot to maintain and with almost total certainty, the combination ends up going wrong and either one of them rots or the others die. Therefore, with this we want to warn you that it is very important to anticipate and anticipate which plants you will place together.
  13. If at the time of placing the plants they are delicate seeds, the most advisable thing is to plant them in a seedbed. They are more delicate plants and a soil with specific fertilizer must be placed (they carry the soil and the substrate all together). Always after planting, pour a little water to irrigate it. But be careful not to over-moisten them so they don’t suffocate and rot. Go observing daily to verify that they have the necessary water.

Tips for planting plants in the garden

Not all seeds are always suitable or in good condition for planting. In fact, if you keep them for a long time or they are not well preserved, they spoil. This can ruin your plantation, because they will not grow or it will spoil the rest of the crops. Therefore, we tell you this trick if you have doubts when saving seeds and you don’t know if they are damaged or if you can plant them. You need a glass of water, fill it halfway with water and add the seeds.  Remove it with a spoon. Now look at the seeds. If these float, it means that they are not very good and it is better to get rid of them.

When you sow your plants, above all, remember the essential steps so that everything flows well and you do not get any unpleasant surprises. Remember the place where you are going to plant them, that the land is suitable. Previously, clean the area, remove weeds and things that can get in the way, aerate the soil, fertilize it, take into account light (direct or indirect), irrigation, etc. And of course, space. If you gather many plants very close together, without respecting the space, they will not end up growing well and it is possible that they will die or remain small. They need several centimeters of space so that they can take root well and expand. It also depends a lot on the type of plant you are going to plant (take it into account).

To make plants grow faster, a greenhouse can be used. To do this, the plants are placed inside the greenhouse and with the heat; the time will be reduced to a lot. For this reason, also be careful in summer and times of great heat and strong sun. As the plants are enclosed, the heat increases much more and they suffer from more heat and therefore, the water evaporates before.

In favor you will also have that you can take care of any adversity such as rain, hail, mud rain, cold, wind… being between plastics, covered, you will avoid all these problems. You can change the plants as soon as the planting has done its job and you have flowering.  Then, you can make sure that you can already make the change and transfer it to where you like the most in your garden or planters.
