Hatton: Gardening mistakes, part 3

I have a few final thoughts about some of the more common mistakes that gardeners make that may have a significant impact over time. When I discussed plant selection and placement, I stressed size and encroachment issues. Equally important are selection of plants that are adapted to our growing conditions and their placement.

Not all adapted plants have the same sun and water requirements. Plants with similar sun and shade requirements should be grouped in the proper place. Likewise, plants with similar water requirements should be placed together. While this may be common sense, it does require some thought since we often select plants primarily based on color and size of the spot we want them to occupy. Proper selection and placement will result in healthier plants, less maintenance, and more efficient use of resources.
