|It can be daunting to plan your own garden, especially if you’re a beginner. If you need some help, we’re sharing some tips that can help you design a bountiful home garden.|

|This will save you money, and it can also give your plants the best chance at growing hearty roots. To make a healthy seed starting mix, use light, well-screened materials that promote root growth. These materials will also ensure that the mix doesn’t compact in small seed starting cells or containers.|

1. Water – Water allows seeds in your garden to swell up so the embryo starts growing.
2. Oxygen – Oxygen allows energy to be released for seed germination.
3. Warmth – Germination improves as temperature rises.
