These 27 Tips From A Master Gardener will take your gardening skills to the next level!

A few years ago, I attended a class taught by Marta Waddell, a Master Gardener in Arizona. I’ve referred to my class notes over and over again, and decided they were good enough to pass along to you!

These tips are definitely going to help you no matter if you are a beginner or not.

1.

Practice eating what’s in season locally. This will get your family used to eating seasonal produce, and, therefore, what you can grow in your own garden.

2.

Just because a nursery is selling certain plants does not mean that particular variety grows well in your area. They are selling what they know people will buy.

3.

High quality tools are a must. Keep a bucket filled with sand and a bit of motor oil mixed in to clean off dirty gardening tools.

4.

If you’re worried about too much shade in your garden area, plant dwarf trees rather than full-size trees.

5.

All heirloom plants are open pollinated, but not all open pollinated plants are heirloom.

6.

Try more than one variety of each vegetable to see what gives you the best results.
