Of Trial, Error, and Serendipity in Your Garden

Have you ever want to learn how to garden? Do you want to become a garden guru and expert? The answer is simple trial and error.

When learning the ropes on a new crop, like Calendula here, it’s great to plant more than one variety. Three is a nice minimum. If none of them thrives, something was off in the growing conditions. If one does markedly better than the others, you’ll know what to plant next time.
