Do plants wither and die on the vine if they’re in your garden? Do you have the dreaded black thumb, the kiss of death to even the hardiest plants?

Fear not. No one really has a black thumb. You’re doing something wrong if your plants are dying. The good news? You simply have to change it up to do things right. Here are six simple ways to accomplish that.

1. Browse Information on Plants

Let’s get first things out of the way. While it might be tempting to choose your garden by color and shape, what your neighbors are doing or what you want to eat, you can’t make decisions about your garden based on those factors alone. You have to read up on your choices before placing them in the earth.



Seed packets, the web, and your local state college’s agricultural extension program are all excellent sources of information on what every plant needs. Plants vary with respect to the amount of sun, water, soil and drainage they require. They also vary according to when they can be planted. You need to read the instructions and follow them. Changing your black thumb to green may be as simple as that.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
