You may also be using plants that need that very same acid. If you’re annoyed with pulling up weeds manually, douse them with a white vinegar solution.
Plant bulbs if you want spring and summer flowers. Bulbs are hardy, easy to grow into flowers, and will blossom for several years. Plant bulbs that will bloom at various intervals to ensure beautiful flowers are growing in your garden all year long.
Your plants should always be kept in an aerated, dry area. If your plants get too moist, they may get sick or infested with parasites. Fungi is the most common parasite for plants. Proactively treat fungi through the use of fungicidal sprays and treatments.
Divide irises. Overgrown clumps of irises can be divided up to increase your numbers of this lovely flower. After the foliage dies, pick up bulbous irises. The bulbs often divide in your hand with no intervention on your part, and when you replant them, they will usually flower the following year. Use a knife to carefully divide rhizomes. Cut healthy pieces from the root stalk and throw out the dead center. A strong offshoot is needed on every piece that you decide to plant. Set your cuttings into the ground right away.
