Does your neighbor’s garden put yours to shame? You may think your neighbor is harboring a secret about having such a healthy garden. Truth be told, there is no real secret to creating a gorgeous garden. All you need is the right knowledge on how to care for your plants properly. Information about horticulture is available online, in books and in magazines created for garden enthusiasts.
Your plants will respond better to gradual changes of environment. Place them outside in the sunlight for an hour or two on the first day. Over one week, gradually build up the amount of hours you leave the plants outside. By the end of the week, your plants should be ready to make the big move with no problem!
Use pots to start your plants, then transfer them to a garden when they become seedlings. This will help the plants make it to full growth. The period between plantings will also be shorter. Using this method, you can remove the mature plants, then put the seedlings in their places.
Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. If you’d like to change things up a bit this season, put away your standard clay pots and plant your lettuce and kale inside of a pumpkin instead! Slice a hole around the stem, and pull the pumpkin top out. Then remove the guts and use Wilt-Pruf to cover the insides and prevent rot. When you finish this, you can plant!
Do not mow your lawn too short. If you leave some of the grass when you mow, the roots grow further into the ground, which makes the grass less prone to drying and other hazards. Short grass means short roots and dead grass.
As you can tell, most of these ideas don’t require a major expenditure of effort or funds. You just need to learn what to do and apply what you have learned. Pay attention to how your plants respond to the methods that you use. If one method does not deliver good results, try the next one. After some time, your neighbors will be envious of you!
