To prevent your plants from getting shocked by a big change, get them gradually used to climate and temperature changes.

When the week is done, your plants will be ready for the big move without any problems.

Young plants with susceptible leaves are favorite meals for slugs, including those with smoother or thinner leaves. Some perennials, however, leave a bad taste in slugs’ mouths or are difficult to chew through because their leaves aren’t tender. Examples of these slug-proof plant varieties include achillea, euphorbia, and helleborus, to name a few.

Flower Beds

Use biennials and annuals to add color to your flower beds. These fast growth plants make flower beds vibrant, and they let you alter the appearance seasonally and annually. Use these beautiful flowers to line your driveway, surround trees and shrubs, and for decorative hanging baskets. Notable collections include sunflower, marigold, hollyhock, rudbeckia, cosmos, and petunia.

If you want your garden full of flowers spring through summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs will grow every year and are easier to take care of than seeds. Keep in mind that different bulb types bloom differently and at different time periods, so when you choose a bulb plan accordingly, you can have your plant blooms lasting spring into summer.

Many people think the best green gardens start from seeds, rather than plants. When you grow a new garden, start the environmental way, from seeds.
