You might make mistakes in the garden, but learn from them.

We sometimes will lose a plant…even when we have done our due diligence and researched the needs of the plant. Unfortunately, things happen. Perhaps you gave the plant too much full sun, or you planted it in a “cool pocket” in your garden, or you did not test the soil pH.

Say a prayer for your plant and try to figure out how your plant died so you do not make the same mistake again. Then try again.

There is a saying: “Class is always in session in a garden.” Decades later, I am still learning new things about gardening.
