Every gardener dreams of having a thriving garden. For some, this is a reality, for some it isn’t. If you want to achieve your dream of a beautiful garden, there are a few things to learn. Garden can involve back-breaking labor, but it can also be very enjoyable. This article should help you to learn a little more about the process of creating a beautiful garden, and having fun in the process!

Clay soil makes working with a shovel difficult. The clay is hard and sticks to the shovel. One way to get around this problem is to coat the shovel with wax. Use a clean cloth to spread the wax evenly. The wax will prevent any rusting, and the shovel will cut through the soil with great ease.

TIP! Get a slug-proof variety of perennials. Slugs and snails can decimate a plant in one night.

Use both annuals and biennials to add a splash of color to your flower beds. Fast growing biennials and annuals can enliven a flower bed while letting you change up the look each season and year. If there are gaps between the perennials and shrubs you have planted in a sunlit area, try filling those gaps with annuals and biennials. Notable varieties include cosmos, rudbeckia, petunia, hollyhock, marigold and sunflower.

Stink Bugs

When partaking in horticulture activities, particularly in the autumn months, keep an eye on those stink bugs. Stink bugs enjoy gardens, and are especially fond of fruit, tomatoes, beans and peppers. If left uncontrolled, they can cause substantial damage in your garden, so make plans for how to protect your plants from these pests.

TIP! Pre-soak your seeds through the night in a dark area. Place a small amount of seeds in a little container, while filling it to the brim with water.

If the soil in your garden has a high concentration of alkaline, try mixing some coffee grounds into your garden’s soil. Coffee grounds contain plenty of acid to get the soil back to a good balance. This can help your veggies and greens look more vibrant and taste better!

Deciduous shrubs need protection from the cold. If the temperature drops below 50 degrees, you should consider protecting them, especially if they do best in warm environments. Fasten the tops of the canes together, and cover this wigwam loosely with a cloth. This method is superior to covering plants in plastic, because air can freely circulate, which prevents rotting.

An excellent garden shouldn’t begin from plants. They should begin from seeds. Planting seeds is the most eco-friendly way to start a new garden. The problem is those plastic trays which end up in landfills and are not generally recycled. Plants in organic packagingn or seeds sown in your garden, are fine .

TIP! If you discover that your soil is very alkaline, take used coffee grounds and mix them thoroughly with your soil. This affordable trick will give back the acid that your dirt requires.

With these tips, you’re better equipped to grow the most beautiful garden you can imagine. In learning how to create your dream garden, you’ll also be growing as a person. That’s because learning how to nurture your plants will not only help you reach the goal of having a great garden, but it will help you learn to nurture yourself.
