Before planting, make sure that you know how large the plants get; making sure there will be
sufficient space for it when it matures.
Seeds verses seedlings; both have their pros and cons. Seeds are small, and can
be difficult to plant, make sure
they get planted at the correct depth, and must ensure that the seed does not dry out, before its new roots are deep enough.
Seedlings are a bit easier because the plant is already a few weeks old, and will grow at a faster rate. Make sure to water the hole before inserting the seedling and make sure you water them daily for the first two weeks.
Looking after your plants means following a schedule of tasks and keeping to it, because plants like
Water more deeply, less often rather than lightly, more frequently
because you want the roots to grow down, deep within the soil.
When you notice plant damages caused by insects, look under all the leaves, trying find the culprit, grab it and get rid of it. Using chemicals will only do long-term damage and should be avoided; controlling pests, using herbs will improve your environment.
