Hints For Getting More Blooms On Your Flowering Plants
20. January 2014
Whether you want to have a garden because you need a hobby, because you want to try growing your own food, or because you find it relaxing to have a little patch of nature all to yourself, there are
ways to make your garden more successful. Here are some easy tips for becoming a great gardener.
Make use of an old golf bag to carry your tools such as spades and rakes around your garden. You will save a lot of time and effort (and you'll have an excuse for a new golf bag!). The bag will keep
them all together, so no more lost tools either. Many golf bags even have a stand, in this case you won't have to worry about it tipping over and causing an accident.
Plants should be protected from cold weather. During winter time, the cold can present dangers to plants, either by freezing the water in their stems or forming sharp ice crystals which may sever or
puncture important organs. Tomatoes, in particular, are very susceptible to the frost and should be moved to a warmer indoor climate, or covered outside with frost-resistant cloth.
Check your store bought soil for pests. If you buy from big home improvement stores, your soil may have pests such as aphids. To kill the insects and their larvae, put the soil in a metal baking pan
and place it covered in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool before using.
Not only is gardening a great way to grow your own food, but you can also grow your own drink. You can grow apple mint to make a delicious tea or rhubarb stalk to make a tart alternative to lemonade.
You should also can or freeze your berries and fruits to make them into soda, hard cider, or wines.
If your horticulture plans include pea plantings, try starting them off indoors rather than planting the raw seeds in outdoor beds. When you plant the seeds indoors, your seeds will start to
germinate better. This method also results in hardier seedlings that can better resist insects and disease. You will be able to transfer the seedlings outdoors after they become better
If you do not have a lot of square footage for horticulture, try using trellises or posts in your garden. Allowing certain vegetables to grow up a trellis or post rather than spreading out along the
ground will allow you to grow more per square foot. You can do this with tomatoes, peas, and climbing beans.
Economize when watering. When watering your garden, try to water using a vessel instead of a hose: this way you will be able to direct the water straight to the roots. Using a hose means that a lot
of water will end up on the leaves, and may evaporate before it has a chance to reach the soil. Only water in the early morning or late evening, as this can help to reduce evaporation. Whenever you
plant something new, it will require constant watering to become established, so if possible, put off new planting until the Fall. This way, nature will be able to do much of the watering for
Don't plant large shade trees in your yard between the curb and the sidewalk. Large trees pool
deck designs have powerful root systems. These roots will crawl under the sidewalk, lifting and breaking the sidewalk pavers. The sidewalk can't be repaired properly without removing the tree
roots, which would damage the tree. Smaller ornamental trees will do less damage.
