Use slug-proof varieties of perennials wherever possible. If slugs or snails find their favorite perennials in your garden, they’ll snack all night. When you wake up in the morning, there will be very little left of your plants. These garden vermin prefer plants with tender, herbaceous stems and leaves, particularly seedlings and young plants. Perennials that are unappetizing in taste, or that have hardened and hairy leaves, are not a favorite of slugs or snails. Examples of these slug-proof plant varieties include achillea, euphorbia, and helleborus, to name a few.
Before you plant a garden you should plan it out. Planning gives you a map of your garden. When your plants begin sprouting and all look alike, you can refer to your plan to remind yourself of which plants are which. You are also less likely to lose smaller members of the larger garden in the overall mix.
Aerate and dry your plants each day. Plant moisture is a big attraction to both parasites and plant diseases. Fungi is very common. It is possible to get rid of fungi after it appears with anti-fungal sprays, but it’s better to spray at-risk areas before fungi appear.
Use the correct type of soil for best results. Dependent on the type of plants you are choosing for the garden, the soil may not be right for them. You may also be able to design an artificial area that contains one type of dirt.
Make sure you protect any tender deciduous shrubs. Cold weather is very hard on these tender shrubs, and potted shrubs should be shielded and protected. The tops should be tied together, and the wigwam should be loosely covered with a sheet or blanket. Covering your foliage in plastic will let the air in – and may lead to decay.
You should plant larger plants in the fall. This will allow strong root development. The ground will still be warm and allow the roots to develop without wasting any energy on leaves, since the air temperature will be too low.
Trying to shovel through clay soil can be extremely difficult and tiresome. Try applying a coat of wax onto your spade prior to working with clay soil, and then buff the spade head with a cloth. By waxing the shovel head, the clay will not be able to adhere to the surface.
