Its Gardening Season!
Melanie Breeze

Its gardening season again! Are you ready? Whether you are a seasoned gardener, or are looking to start gardening, you will likely need supplies and plants. If you shop smart, and use the tips below, you can get that garden running with very little money. And you can save a lot of money on your grocery bill as well.

There are many different types of gardening, but it is important to learn the basics of the activity. Below you will find a list of my tips to planting a garden on a budget.

Learn as much as you can about gardening. Dont pay for gardening books, use your local library. It is free, and you can get a wide assortment of books to get you started. If you find something useful like a planting schedule, photocopy that particular page to keep it in your files. There are many hobby gardening sites online as well, so try to do a Google search for gardening.

Plant what you like. Your first garden doesnt have to be a complex one. Dont take on more than you can chew, literally. If you have a small family, plant only what you can eat or give away. Dont plant a huge amount of crops, because you will end up throwing them away at the end of the season. On the same note, dont plant things that your family wont eat. A garden full of spinach might not go over well with your kids, so plan accordingly.

Buy your supplies online. Buying tools and plants online can save you a great deal of money. Look for discount sites online. You can save up to 50% on the supplies that you need, just by shopping online. Make sure to factor in shipping as well, so if they have a free shipping deal- go for it!

Look for plants that will last for more than one growing season. Some plants can last season after season. This in turn will save you money! So look for cheap plants that will give you the most bang for your buck.

Use a coupon site. A coupon site like is a great way to save even more money. The service is free and you can get a coupon code for just about any site you can think of. So consider buying your tools and plants through one of their vendors. You may find a great bargain!

With these tips, I have no doubt that you will be able to grow a beautiful garden on a budget. Happy gardening!
