Check out this video from Expert Village’s Craig Morel. He works for Landscape Restorations in Miami, Florida. This video is to talk about troubleshooting garden problems. It’s a basic video for new gardeners. But, he makes a great point in the video for all gardeners to remember.
Here’s his big secret:
Know a little about the plants you are planting. It makes sense, really. And, well, it’s not too much of a secret. But, an easy tip to overlook.
Craig uses the example of integrating plants in a garden. He points out in the video that you wouldn’t place a water pond plant next to a barrel cactus. Water pond plants need really wet feet and a cactus likes dry, sandy soil. This may sound a little obvious. But, it’s a good reminder to know a little about the plants you are planting. It’s not always about what plants look good together!
