Gather some ideas for planning your garden, whether it will be for home or commercial use. Don’t waste money on equipment, plants or seeds without first figuring out exactly what you need.
When you sow seeds in your garden, try not to rush the process. Water the soil first. Spread the seeds, and leave them enough room to grow. The seeds should be buried to a depth that is equal to three times the diameter of the seeds. Also keep in mind that there are some seeds you should not bury, as light is essential for their growth.
Climbing plants make a strong addition to walls, fences or other free-standing structures. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season. They can also grow through existing shrubs or trees, or be trained to cover an arbor. There are those that have to be fixed to a support, but others will find a surface to cling to all on their own through twining stems or tendrils. Wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle, clematis and some rose varieties are good choices for climbers.
Play up autumn color in your landscaping. Gardens and yards come alive with warm, impressive reds and yellows during the fall as deciduous trees, shrubs, and even vines begin to change color. These plants will stop producing chlorophyll in the fall, so the green tones down and the other colors in the leaves shine through. You should be sure that your plants recieve adequate sunlight. Aim to boost their sunlight during the afternoon, when the sun peaks. If you are interested in spectacular fall colors, get some maple, boston ivy, chestnut, barbery or burning bush.
You can use root cuttings to create new plants. If possible, cut dormant roots during the winter months. Use a sharp knife to remove the thickest and longest roots from the plant. Separate the roots by cutting them into sections of about two inches each. Fill seed trays with grit and moist peat, and gently lay the cut roots on the surface. Place a light layer of the grit and peat mixture on top of it. Leave in a cool place, and in about a month you will have new seedlings. Place the seedlings in pots until they have matured enough to be outside.
Ensure that your plants are kept dry, and aerated daily. Moisture not only attracts parasites, but also makes it easier for your plants to contract diseases. Fungi is a common problem in the world of plants. Proactively treat fungi through the use of fungicidal sprays and treatments.
Complete your paperwork before you start your veggie garden. Write down the things you want to cultivate and then make a diagram of the whole garden. Consider things like width and plant height at maturity, also the required moisture and sunlight.
All that is required is a little research, patience, and putting in some work time out in the garden itself. You will feel a sense of reward when you start seeing how you made something grow from nothing.
