With having a garden you have to be responsible for it. Learn about the plants you are going to put in your garden. Keep notes of the environment they grow in and the care they need all year round. If you know that you won’t have time for regular watering, choose plants that don’t require much water to grow. Or you can invest in an automated watering system with a timer. After the planting of your garden, make a diary of your garden. Take notice of pests that might affect your plants and ask for an expert’s advice.
