Planting is one of the most enjoyable tasks in the garden, but there is more to it than meets the inexperienced eye. Identifying what to plant given your site, situation and soil profile and purchasing “better” plants from the right supplier and planting them with the correct soil type and soil conditioners does require an experienced hand. If you get this wrong then your garden may be going nowhere for the season.
