If you’ve always wanted a beautiful garden, you will understand that there are many things you should consider before you start. Gardening requires labor and effort, but at the same time gardening can also be a lot of fun. Here are some tips to make sure it’s less ‘work’ and more ‘fun’!
For good and optimal growth, plants require sufficient carbon dioxide (CO2). Plants will not thrive if they do not have a sufficient amount of CO2. A greenhouse can concentrate the levels of CO2 and keep it stable. Here the CO2 can be increased, which is not possible outside the greenhouse, and you can ensure the best conditions for your plants for rapid growth.
Always be aware that your plants always have exactly the recommended amount of water, too much or too little can be harmful. Too much water can rot the roots of your plants, and too little water will not give your plants the moisture they need to grow healthy and strong. Check the moisture content of the plants often and keep the soil moist as needed.
Make a planting schedule before you plant anything. This document will help you organize which plants to plant at any given time. If you plan ahead, you will be prepared and you will have the seeds and when you need them. There are many ways to create your calendar, on paper or electronically on the computer, or even with an app for your smartphone.
Plant some trees that have colorful fruits in the fall. Fall is usually associated with foliage, but some trees produce decorative fruit which is great for variety in fall. There are many fall plants and trees that produce berries, adding color to your garden as well as food for the winter birds. That immediately gives a cheerful lot with birds in the garden! The berries can vary in color from yellow to red. A few attractive examples are holly, crabapple and chokeberry.
Protect from the cold
Deciduous shrubs are very fragile, so protect them well. If you have a few shrubs in pots they should be protected from the winter weather. Sealing in plastic is well known, but it is better not to do this because it can cause plants to rot. A much better solution is to place a cloth (for example a thin sheet) over the top, so that the bush can continue to breathe.
With these tips you will be better equipped to develop and grow your dream garden. Learning how to create the garden of your dreams will help you grow as a person. Because, if you learn how to take care of your plants, you actually learn to take good care of yourself.
