What better time than now? You might have some questions on where to start, but don’t worry, the article below will help with lots of useful information. The ideas and tips below will get you started and on your way to a successful garden.
You must gradually introduce your plants to changing conditions and temperatures, so you do not shock them. Put them in the sun outside for a couple of hours during the first day. As time goes by, slowly increase the time they spent outdoors. By the weekend, the plants can make that big move without a problem!
Find some plants that will give you a higher yield. Hybrids are usually hardier in terms of disease and weather resistance, and are designed to produce more.
Plant perennials that are slug-proof. If slugs or snails find their favorite perennials in your garden, they’ll snack all night. When you wake up in the morning, there will be very little left of your plants. These pests are particularly fond of young perennials and those varieties with leaves that are tender, smooth, and thin. Some perennials aren’t that tasty to snails and slugs since they have tough and hairy leaves, and an unappetizing flavor. Examples of these include euphorbia, hellebourus and achillea. Others you may want to consider are campanula and heuchera.
Annuals and biennials are an excellent way to add a splash of bright color to your flower gardens. You can use biennial and annual flowers to brighten the bed, and let you change how it looks. They are very helpful when trying to fill in gaps between shrubs and perennials in an area that is sunny. There are many flowers you can plant in these gaps. Try marigolds, petunias or sunflowers for a brighter garden.
Now you should be ready to get gardening. If you think that you were ready before, you should see yourself now. Ideally, the advice in this article will assist you in getting your horticulture off to a strong start. You’ll be showing off your green thumb in no time.
