Gardening tips for Social Media Managers
I love gardening and have a variety of plants in my garden. Some are showy and colourful. Others are understated but still contribute to my garden’s overall success.
I know I need to care for my garden to ensure it flourishes. However, I don’t want to be overwhelmed by its upkeep. So, I planned and created my garden with the following rules in mind:
- Carefully choose each plant. Identify the types of birds, butterflies, bees etc that it attracts to make sure they are the types of visitors you want.
- Do your research to discover the plants best suited for your area so that you get the best results.
- Always keep an eye on your garden and make sure it is well-fertilised and watered. However, use the right type of fertiliser for each plant.
- Remember, there’s a fine line between over-watering and over-feeding your plants and not giving them enough nourishment. You need to find the right balance.
- If a particular plant isn’t thriving, try to find out what is wrong. You many need to tend to it differently or maybe it is just not suitable and needs to be removed and replaced with something that works better.
Not every garden will be the same. Your social media garden may contain a different range of plants and flowers to mine. For example, your area of interest may need more colour and vibrancy or it may require more sturdy plants.
But the rules for looking after your social media garden remain the same and, if cared for correctly, it will start bearing the fruit and flowers you seek.
