Maximize your opportunities with fall color. Most deciduous vines, trees and shrubs look most beautiful in the autumn, when they transform into fiery oranges, vivid reds and glowing yellows. This change happens because the plants stop producing chlorophyll, and pigments that were previously masked by green begin to show. Make sure your plants get as much sun as possible so they can give more vivid colors. Great choices include burning bush, barberry, chestnut, maple and boston ivy.
When powdery mildew appears on your plants, you should not rush out to purchase a costly chemical treatment. Mix a solution of baking soda, water, and a tiny bit of dishwashing liquid. Once every week, you should spray the mixture on your plants; the mildew will disappear shortly thereafter. Baking soda will not damage your plants and treats the mildew gently but efficiently.
When fertilizing your garden, consider the benefits of a chicken tractor. Chicken tractors are mobile chicken coops. Not only can you move the coop as needed, but the tractor has no permanent floor, so you can feed the chickens in whatever area of your garden needs fertilizing. A chicken tractor protects your poultry and allows them to graze specific areas of your garden while also naturally fertilizing it. As you finish one area with the chicken tractor, you can then move on to the next area.
To make sure the roots of your large plants (trees and shrubbery) have a strong development, plant them in the fall. The ground is somewhat warm when compared to the temperature of the air, and the plants are stripped of their leaves, the root system can get all of the plant’s resources and create a strong foundation.
To defend your garden from errant dogs, spray something with a strong scent, including aftershave or old perfume around the perimeter of the garden. This will mask any scents that might attract your dog and make your garden less interesting to him.
Take your time when planting seeds. Begin by adding moisture to the soil. Then, evenly spread the seeds according to the type of plant and how much room they require for good growth. Seeds need to be buried as deep as three times the seed size. There are some seeds that require light to grow, so they must not be buried.
If you find that you have soil that has high amounts of alkaline, mix used coffee grounds throughout the soil. The coffee grounds provide a cheap way to re-supply needed acid to the dirt. This can help your veggies and greens look more vibrant and taste better!
