Kitchen Gardening is very fascinating and rewarding. You can grow vegetables, spices, herbs and a lot more things in your kitchen garden. It is very important to know some of the basic things before you start kitchen gardening:
Motivation: You should be motivated for gardening. This is the most basic need for growing any kind of plants at your house, terrace or garden. Gardening requires patience and without motivation you it will be difficult to have patience. There will be lots of failure and you should not get demotivated from your failures. Always keep experimenting and learning more things.
Sunlight Availability: If you are having a lawn or backyard you will be getting ample amount of sunlight but if you want to start kitchen gardening in your house, terrace, apartment balcony you should understand how much sunlight is available and when it is available (morning, afternoon, evening or full day). Sunlight availability will be a very important factor to decide what you can grow in your kitchen garden.
Space Availability: This is also an important factor. If space is less go for vertical gardening or have small pots to grow your favorite plants. You if have sufficient space like a full terrace or backyard garden or front lawn, you will have multiple options. Even in small spaces people are able to grow multiple things.
