As an avid gardener, you’re aware that if you don’t have the right tools, your garden isn’t going to look the best it could look. In order to have a successful garden, there are a few items you need to have handy at all times. Some of which you might not have even thought about before. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Plant Labels
To identify which fruits, vegetables, and herbs are in your garden, labeling them is a good idea. You can use a toothpick with a name tag attached to it and stick the end into the ground. But the label would likely get wet when it rains and leave you unsure of what you planted. You can find plant markers on Amazon or at any plant store at a really reasonable price. And you don’t have to worry about those getting damaged in the weather. 

An Amish Shed
Amish sheds are a great investment because they’re the perfect place to store your gardening items for many years to come. Amish furniture is made from the ground up and each piece is different. So your Amish shed is going to look different from your neighbor’s down the street. Generally speaking, it takes approximately eight weeks to build new or custom Amish furniture. Amish pieces like sheds or dog kennels are built to last for many, many years to come. They can withstand any of the elements, leaving you with a reliable place to keep your gardening supplies safe. 

A Spray Bottle
This one might seem obvious. So obvious that you might forget all about it. A spray bottle is used to help revive any plants that seem like they might be dying or drying out. This tool can be used to quickly keep your plants fresh every day or to give them a little extra something after coming home from vacation.

Irish Spring Soap
Yes, you read that correctly. Irish Spring Soap can actually be used for more than just washing yourself off in the shower. Take a bar of soap, chop it up, and hang it in a mesh bag near your garden. The scent will drive deer, rabbits, and other furry critters away. Just don’t hang it too close to your garden or your plants will get a soapy bath when it rains. 

Gardening can be a great hobby if you have the right tools. Make sure you have a few bars of Irish Spring Soap, a spray bottle, and plant labels in your Amish shed at all times.
