Start with a a few small containers or a raised bed and gradually add more as you gain in confidence.
2 Choose the right plants
When selecting plants for your garden, it's important to consider the amount of sunlight and water they require, as well as the soil conditions in your area. Choose plants that are well-suited to your climate and soil type, and make sure to provide them with the right amount of care and attention.
3 Good drainage.
Good drainage is essential for healthy plants so make sure your soil is well draining by adding organic matter such as compost or peat moss. Additionally make sure your posts or containers have drainage holes to allow excess water to escape.
4. Water Properly
Proper watering is crucial for plant growth and health . Be sure to water your plants deeply and throughly, rather than just sprinkling the surface. Avoid overwatering as this can lead to root rot and other problems.
5. Use Organic Fertilisers
Chemical fertilisers can be harmful to the environment and may damage beneficial organisms in your soil. Instead use organic fertilisers such as compost or manure to provide your plants with the nutrients they need to thrive.

Pests can be a major problem in any garden. To keep them at bay, consider using natural pest control methods such as companion planting, insecticidal soap, or neem oil. Additionally, be sure to keep your garden clean and tidy to discourage pests from taking up residence.Pests can be a major problem in any garden.
