I’m not exactly the greenest thumb so I may not be the best one to provide tips on this topic, but the first thing I would do to save money is to keep it simple. I often make the mistake of going all out when buying gardening supplies, only to find out down the line that I probably didn’t need all the equipment I bought.

On the flip side, I would also buy equipment that’s necessary. I’ve tried the opposite too where I realized I spent too much so I tried being ultra frugal, and I ended up making my own sprinkling watering can by poking holes on the bottom of a paper cup and using old water gallon as pots. Um, *so* did not work lol!
