Zone 10 – Gardening lesson for beginner

Hello Gardeners,

I started gardening in 2015 and now I have one year experience with gardening in Zone 10 – San Diego. Following are some quick notes which might help someone like me.

Low maintenance and abundant flowering plant. Every beginner must try with this.

  • Hibiscus
  • Marigold
  • Sunflower
  • Euryops/ Yellow daisy like flower is a low maintenance native plant with abundant flowering.

You are tempted to grow Rose as beginner. Have a strong heart, growing beautiful rose with healthy foliage need years of experience. so, it’s a journey

  • As a beginner, it’s good you start in pot
  • Rose needs lots of water  in summer
  • Use Rose soil
  • Use Rose fertilizer.
  • If you think , Rose will grow in soil and fertilizer common for other plants that ain’t happening !

Tip – You can use banana peel for organic supply of potassium(K)
