Be careful how you water your garden. To save time, use a soaker type hose so each plant doesn’t need individual watering from the nozzle of a hose or a little watering can. Turn the water on at low pressure so your delicate plants will not be damaged by the soaker hose. Give it a few hours to water the plants so you have schedule freedom to tend to other matters.
To encourage root development, plant large trees and shrubs in the autumn. The ground will still be relatively warm as compared to the cold air, and the plants will not have as many leaves to support, so they can concentrate their resources and energy into forming a strong root system to serve as their stable foundation.
Protect and define your garden with some type of border. You can use a thick shrub, decorative border or a fence to keep large animals away from your plants.
In a dark area, pre-soak your seeds overnight. Place your seeds in a container filled with water. This will give your seeds a good start by making sure they have plenty of water, which they need to sprout. The seeds will be better able to survive and grow up.
Cover any wall or fence with climbers. Climbing plants can cover a wall after one growing season only. You can also train climbers to cover arbors and other things that you want covered, and they will even grow right through trees and shrubs. Some climbers will attach themselves to a support using twining stems or tendrils, while other varieties need to be held up by tying them in place. Climbing roses, honeysuckle, wisteria, clematis, and jasmine are some great plants to try out.
Ensuring your plants are both dry and aerated is a great way to keep them healthy. Plant moisture is a big attraction to both parasites and plant diseases. Fungus is a common problem when plants are allowed to remain damp. Sprays and liquids exist that are perfect for killing the fungi, but be sure you use it on the area before the fungi actually appear.
There are many houseplants that need to be re-potted, but some prefer to stay in their existing pot. It is easy to check if a plant needs to be re-potted. Simply turn the plant upside down, and tap on the pot until the plant comes out easily. If all you see are mostly roots, the plant needs a new pot. However, if you see few to no roots, you can leave the plant in its current pot.
