The uncertainty of gardening
I've posted a number of questions over the last day or so on various topics and I thought I would start a thread here to see how many others there are like me, sort of newish to gardening that goes beyond just weeding, but slightly underconfident about what to do sometimes
I do have a habit of over-thinking things at times, and doubtless lots of folk just plough in with the secateurs, or plant things in deep shade without a second thought, and end up with nicely trimmed shrubs that flower profusely, or plants that thrive whatever the situation. I'm happy to do that sometimes, but there is such satisfaction from growing things, helping them to thrive and thinking it's something I did, and it makes gardening a pleasure when it works, so I'd hate to get it wrong and inadvertently set things back a season
Some people seem to have a knack of just getting it right, proper green fingers, though I'm sure it is knowledge acquired over years and years of trial and error, or learning from others such as I have done on this forum
So I'd like to know if others have the same sense of hesitation, of wanting to know how to do it properly to get it right, and also of being perplexed at the range of plants, pests, weeds, tools and techniques that go into making a nice garden. Having a go is good, and I guess it depends on the cost of the consequences if it goes wrong. My main concern at the moment is that our garden is really starting to come together, I'm learning lots of new things, becoming confident about certain things and I would hate to jeopardise that progress by doing something a bit dim. Hence the lots of questions....
I'm hopeful I will find I am not in a minority of one......And I should add that I am happy in my garden and happy with my progress, just wish I knew more!!
