‘It’s difficult to do it wrong!’ Which ‘entry level’ plants can you grow right now, according to a gardening expert?
A GARDENING expert has given the best “entry level” plants to grow right now for newbie gardeners. These plants, according to the horticultural expert, are “difficult to do wrong.”
If you’re new to gardening, getting started can appear to be a difficult undertaking. Planting different plants, garden jobs, and harvests are best done throughout each month of the year. So, if you’re a novice gardener, where do you start?
Morris Hankinson, Managing Director of Hopes Grove Nurseries in Kent, told This website exclusively which “entry level” plants you may cultivate right now.
Hopes Grove Nurseries, based in Tenterden, has been in operation for 27 years and grows roughly one million hedge plants on 50 acres of land.
The nurseries provide plants for Alan Titchmarsh, David Domoney, Katie Rushworth, and Frances Tophill on ITV’s Love Your Garden.
If you’re known for dying every plant you touch, don’t worry: Morris promises that planting plants will be “difficult to do wrong.”
September is “peak season” for planting bulbs in the ground or in containers, according to the gardening expert.
After you’ve planted your bulbs, you may leave them alone for the winter.
The bulbs will begin to sprout early next year, in the spring.
It’s easier to place them in the ground when the dirt is damp, according to the gardening expert.
“Make sure there’s a little dampness when you’re putting them in,” he continued.
“They have to put up with a lot. Try to put them in the correct order!
“Even if you don’t, it doesn’t mean you’ll fail.
“Even in pots and containers, they never seem to suffer.
“They don’t seem to mind if it’s bitterly chilly in the winter.

“They’re continually peeking out through the snow, crocuses and other flowers,” says the narrator.
“They’re a good group of plants to start with. It’s difficult to get them wrong!”
By the end of the month, you should be able to plant spring-flowering bulbs like daffodils, crocus, and hyacinths.
Tulip bulbs, on the other hand, must be planted in November.
In September and October, you can plant lilies, alliums, fritillaria, and crocosmia.
You can even plant bulbs in December, but you must do so before there is a chance of frost.
It’s possible that if you plant them when it’s cold outside, they won’t produce roots.
When your bulbs bloom next year, make sure to read the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
