5 Things You Should Consider Before Buying Plants at the Nursery
When it comes to choosing plants we'll actually be able to maintain, most of us are making the same mistake: We pick out the plants we want before we consider the conditions in our backyard. Why is this a problem? If we're not sure what type of soil we have or we haven't analyzed how much sunlight the space gets, we could be choosing plants that have no shot of survival. Besides environmental conditions, being honest with ourselves about how often we're willing to water our plants and how much maintenance we have time to take on will also influence which plants we should buy.
To figure out how to select the perfect plants for your own outdoor space, whether it's a big backyard or a petite patio, we asked the plant experts at Costa Farms for the rules to follow when picking plants. As it turns out, considering these five factors before you head to the nursery can help you choose plants that are sure to thrive.
