1. Research and ask for approved advice

2. Follow your instinct
When it comes to free advice, often you get what you “pay”. Keep in mind that a lot of employees from the gardening stores are overzealous in their recommendations. Don’t let them to manipulate you and listen to your instincts: if you buy something that seems unnecessary the chances to be right are pretty high.
3. Compare offers
Greenhouses and gardening stores may have very different prices for the same items. Online gardening centers can be a good solution when you want to do a quick offer comparison.
4. Avoid buying in a hurry
Make sure you have a special space for each plant you intend to buy otherwise your crops will die because they won’t have the necessary growing conditions or you may end up that you bought way too many plants and don’t have space to store them.
5. Give an opportunity to second-hand products
New products are not necessarily better, but it costs more. You can find on the internet or specialized plant fairs second hand equipment, perfectly functional and much cheaper!
