Always allow your plants to adapt gradually to any changes in light conditions, temperatures or soils, if you do not, you might shock them and cause them to die. Try placing them outside in sunlight for about an hour or maybe two the first day. As time goes by, slowly increase the time they spent outdoors. The plants should be prepared to move outside permanently at the end of this week.
Digging in hard clay soil is made even more difficult because it sticks to the shovel. Simplify the process by putting a bit of wax onto the shovel. The clay won’t stick then. The clay easily slides off the surface while keeping the end from getting rusty.
Think about starting plants in pots, and then placing the seedlings in the garden later. This raises the chances of the plants growing until adulthood. Seeds can’t always thrive in gardens, and are often eaten by birds. You will have healthy seedlings that are ready to be planted when you get rid of old plants.
Before you even place the first plant in your garden, you need to check the composition of your soil. Have a soil analysis completed so you can know what you need to add to have soil which will fully support your garden. It can avoid ruined vegetables and flowers, so check with places, such as a cooperative extension department to see where you can obtain the analysis.
As fall arrives, it is the time to prepare for planting fall edibles. Rather than putting standard clay vessels into use when planting crops of lettuce and kale, think about using pumpkins instead. Cut an opening in the pumpkin and scoop the insides out. Then spray the edges and empty inside of the pumpkin with Wilt-Pruf so the pumpkin doesn’t rot. After that, your pumpkin planter is ready to use!
Don’t plant a garden without planning it. Use your seed packages to make fun markers that will remind you where each type of plant is growing. In addition, some plants are so small you might forget you planted them once all your plants sprout. Planning stops these plants from getting lost in the crowd.
