Use climbers for covering fences and walls. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season. They can grow through shrubs and trees, or even cover an arbor. Some must be tied onto a support, but a number of climbers attach to surfaces with twining stems or tendrils. Some of the most reliable varieties are wisteria, clematis, jasmine, honeysuckle and climbing roses.
When winter comes around, save some plants by putting them in the house. Maybe you’d like to save the most expensive plants you have or the most resistant. Carefully dig near the roots and transfer those plants into a flower pot.
Bulbs planted in the spring can flower all the way into summer. Most bulbs are extremely hearty and grow easily. They also come back year after year. Different varieties of bulbs flower at varied times and if you make the right choices you can have blossoms from early spring through late summer.
Cooling weather of early fall signals the opportune time to plant seasonal edibles. Rather than putting standard clay vessels into use when planting crops of lettuce and kale, think about using pumpkins instead. You simply need to cut off the top, scoop out the guts, and spray your pumpkin with Wilt-Pruf. Now this is completed, it is time to get planting!
For areas with high alkaline, mix coffee grounds into the soil. The coffee grounds provide a cheap way to re-supply needed acid to the dirt. The right soil will make your vegetables taste better and make your flowers more vibrant and aromatic.
