Assuming you’re talking about growing vegetables and herbs outdoors, that’s a pretty general thing to ask. I’d need to know what kind of plants you’re wanting to grow to be able to help you. It’s best to just research the care for each vegetable or herb you want to grow online and decide if you’ll be able to grow it in your yard or wherever you want it and then decide where to put it. Generally herbs like a well-draining potting mix and should be fertilized occasionally and have compost mixed in with the soil and most herbs will need dappled sunlight or direct sunlight for most of the day outside. Fruiting vegetables will need more sunlight than non fruiting ones so keep that in mind. Other than that I can’t really help unless you tell me what you want to grow. Also if you don’t have much space you can try container gardening which is basically just growing vegetables and herbs in large pots instead of the ground which is what I’m doing this year once it warms up outside.smichaelides85 wrote:New to growing vegetables and herbs etc, can anyone give me some tips and help to start please.
