You need to consider beginning the plants into pots. Then, you can plant the seedlings into your garden. They are then more likely to survive and to become thriving, mature plants. In addition, it offers you a smaller time frame between plantings. When you take out the prior set of adult plants, your seedlings will then be prepared to go in.
Long plants that run up or around a fence or wall are often useful for masking ugliness. Plants that grow as climbers are quite versatile, helping you hide ugly walls or fences, many times within only one season of growth. No need to worry if a bush or tree is in the way, as climbers can grow through them. Also, they can match the shape of an arbor. There are those that have to be fixed to a support, but others will find a surface to cling to all on their own through twining stems or tendrils. A few good choices are climbing roses, wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle and clematis.
Plants require a good amount of CO2 in order to grow to their maximum height. Most plants will grow better with more CO2. A greenhouse will provide plants with an environment rich in carbon dioxide. Here the CO2 can be increased, as it cannot be outdoors, and can give your plants the best conditions for rapid growth.
If you’re like many gardeners, autumn means that it’s time to get some delicious fall edibles growing in your garden. Try planting your fall veggies, especially leafy greens, inside of a pumpkin! Clean out the pumpkin just like you would if you were making a jack o’lantern. Spray Wilt-Pruf inside the pumpkin and along its edges so that the pumpkin won’t rot. Once you have finished, you can begin planting.
When dealing with any type of seeds in gardening, it’s important that you soak them overnight in a cool, dark location. Place some seeds into a small container, then fill it with water until it is almost to the top. This lets water soak into the seeds, giving them an extra boost of hydration when they start growing. Seeds that are cultivated this way are more likely to survive and mature properly.
Irises should be divided. Take clumps that have become overgrown and divvy them up into separate plants. When the foliage has died off, it is time to harvest the iris bulbs. They will literally split in your hand, flowering the next year after replanting. Use a knife to divide the rhizomes. Cut several new pieces out of the outside and get rid of the old center. There needs to be a minimum of one healthy offshoot on each of the new sprout sections. Immediately replant all your selected cuttings.
There is no need to buy produce of lesser quality. If you follow the advice that you have just read, you will be on your way to an even greener thumb!
