Avoid these easy missteps, and watch your garden grow! Jump below for our Top 5 mistakes to avoid, and add your own...

1. Purchasing plants that are in bloom

2. Allowing weeds to seed.

3. Planting too early, with not enough space between plants, or not planting deep enough. Plants grow, and they need space to do so!

4. Using too much fertilizer. Too much food for anything is never healthy.

5. Over or under watering. Make sure to water deeply—enough to create a reservoir underneath the bed. And never water during the hottest part of the day.
