The Five Secrets to Achieving Happiness in your Garden is a post on the blog titled May Dreams Gardens. These five secrets are often floating through my thoughts, repeatedly reminding me of information that helps me make suitable decisions with my garden work and my garden designs.
The author tells us this happiness is as simple as:
1 – Grow the plants you love. Only the plants you love.
2 – Size your garden to the resources you have. Space, time, physical ability, and money.
3 – Buy good tools.
4 – Respect Mother Nature. Accept hardiness zones & plant accordingly; compost & use that compost to amend the soil: choose organic methods & eliminate pesticides; choose plants that will attract birds, butterflies, bees & other wildlife. These choices will eliminate frustration, heartache, worry & waste.
5 – Share your garden. Visually; through pass-along plants, fruits & vegetables; share what you know about gardening; share your love of gardening & plants.
This is my condensed version of the basic concepts of the Five Secrets, but join me in embracing this wonderful written tool, as you read the original article www.maydreamsgardens.com/p/gardening-secrets.html to help you achieve the happiness and successes of gardening in your own life.
