12 Tips for Frugal Gardeners
You can have a garden of your dreams without spending a cent, here are 12 hacks for frugal gardening!
Start out small. Using a container method will help you save space and you can use items you already have to start gardening. An old coffee mug, a basket, and an egg carton are great examples of items you can use to begin planting. You will be able to test sunlight and your specific climate too.
Try to start out with seeds. Buying a pack of seeds is very cost effective. They are usually under $2 at a hardware store or a nursery. You can even just use a half of a packet at a time.
Find some fruits and vegetables you can plant in your garden that grow soon. Some produce takes a long time to go while other items have a quick turn around. If you plant some that will grow sooner, you can get the fruits and veggies faster and you will end up spending less on groceries.
