B&Q container gardening is a popular style of container gardening. This technique is great for growing the exact same plant, just year round, but it is also wonderful for growing a virtually unlimited variety of plants, both annual and perennial, in a container. Growing strawberries using B&Q container planting techniques is not only easy but extremely efficient as well. Here are some tips for container growing with B&Q container gardening:
Planting shrubs and ferns in containers is an excellent way to fill an outdoor space. Shrubs and ferns are wonderful alternatives to bare root strawberry plants because they don’t require replanting every year, and they will grow well regardless of what the weather is like outside. They are much easier to care for once planted, and after pruning they will continue to thrive in even the most marginal conditions.
Most fruit trees and vines do better in B&Q containers than they do in the ground. To ensure you’re getting the most out of your B&Q container planting experience, there are a few things you can do to maximize the health and longevity of your container garden. The first is to ensure your B&Q shrub or plant is planted in a well-drained, acidic soil around the perimeter of its container. This soil may be slightly richer than the surrounding soil, but it needs to be well-tended with watering, fertilizer, and pest control. Make sure to avoid over-watering or you’ll end up with more dead leaves on your bare root plants than fruit trees.
When pruning your B&Q plants, it’s important to remember that they must go through a process called dormancy. If you fail to prune your B&Q plants during this time frame, they will mature much earlier than expected and possibly suffer from diseases and pests. Here are some of the common diseases and pests, you’ll want to watch out for as you learn how to plant bare root plants.
Mildew – Most plants succumb to mildew when they are properly watered and cared for. But your B&Q plants are especially prone to developing fungus due to their lack of proper light exposure. In order to keep your bare root plants from succumbing to mildew, you can use a product such as Organic Clean to aid in the prevention of mildew. Organic Clean doesn’t contain any pesticides, chemicals, or other harmful ingredients. It is completely natural and safe for your plants, and the result of its prevention of mildew is a larger yield of stronger, healthier plants.
Disease and Pest Control – A B&Q plant will flower, grow roots and then die within three years. This means that you need to be vigilant regarding disease and pests if you want to get the most production out of your plants. Purchase an organic pest control solution to put down around your plants every month and use it in the soil beneath your B&Q bare root plants. Make sure you place your Organic Clean solution into the soil where the B&Q plant grows, but also in the drainage holes and other areas that the plant might occupy. Use a few drops of Organic Clean per gallon of water to help prevent disease and pests.
Shriveled foliage attached to the B&Q plant pots can be a danger to these plants if they’re planted directly in the ground. When you receive a B&Q plant or tree from a friend that has buds or sprouts that are very large and have long roots, it’s important to remove the blossoms from the pot before you transfer the plant because it will usually have shriveled foliage attached. Place the new plant in a larger container so that there will be room for the roots to spread. Once the plants are established in their new container, re-pot them and report them.
