Insects and various garden pests can be avoided by making your soil healthy. The hearty plants that'll grow in a garden with rich soil can resist the bugs and diseases that weak plants can’t withstand. For healthy plants, start with healthy soil that's properly amended and free of chemicals in order to avoid salt accumulation.
Use biennials and annuals to beautify your flower beds. These types of flowers grow at high speed, which gives you more flexibility in changing the look of your flower beds as the seasons change. They can be used to fill in gaps in your garden between the perennials or shrubs so your garden looks fuller. Some varieties are hollyhocks, petunias and sunflowers.
Plants require a good amount of CO2 in order to grow to their maximum height. Most plants will grow better with more CO2. A great way to reach these CO2 levels is through a greenhouse. It’s best to keep CO2 levels high for the best growth of your plants.
Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. Instead of a clay pot, show some fall spirit by using a hollow pumpkin to plant your lettuce or kale in. Scoop the insides out of the pumpkin. Don’t forget to spray the inside with Wilt-Pruf. This will prevent your pumpkin from rotting. Now this is completed, it's time to get planting!
With these tips, you’re better equipped to grow the most beautiful garden you can imagine. In learning how to create your dream garden, you’ll also be growing as a person. That’s because learning how to nurture your plants won't only help you reach the goal of having a great garden. It'll help you learn to nurture yourself.
