Do you always think that things are better somewhere else? You might imagine that all your neighbors have some top-secret formula that keeps their grass and garden looking so much better than yours. The truth is that there is no horticulture “secret”. All it takes is knowledge on how to take care of your plants properly. Begin your search for horticulture knowledge with the tips below and get ready to develop an even greener thumb.

Use your tool handles as rulers in the garden. Large handled tools such as shovels, rakes, and hoes can be used as measuring sticks. Lay the handles onto the floor and place a measuring tape beside them. With a permanent marker, note pertinent measurements on the tool handle. You will never find yourself looking for a ruler thanks to this simple tip.

TIP! Choose higher yield plant varieties. A lot of times a hybrid that will tolerate cold weather or disease will give you a higher output than heirlooms.

Plant a variety of annuals, biennials and perennials to keep your flower beds bright. These biennials and annuals are fast-growing, and they allow you to brighten up your flower bed with a change for each season. You can fill any spaces between shrubs and perennials when they are in the sun. Notable biennials and annuals include marigold, sunflowers, hollyhock, petunia, and cosmos.

Baking Soda

There’s no need for chemical intervention if you discover powdery mildew on leaves. All you need to do is mix baking soda with a tiny bit of liquid soap in with some water. Use a spray bottle to apply to your plants weekly until the issue clears up. Baking soda is a good way to get rid of mildew on your plants gently.

TIP! Soak the seeds and store in a dark area overnight. Place some seeds in your smaller pots and add water almost to the brim.

Climbing plants and vines are great for covering fences and wall structures. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season. It is possible to get them to grow in conjunction with trees and bushes already on the premises, or train them to drape over arbors. Some of these plants must have support, and some can attach themselves to something using their stems and tendrils. Honeysuckle and jasmine are very beautiful varieties of such climbers.

The first thing you should do when planning a garden is test the soil. A soil analysis report can be acquired for a nominal fee. You can then use the results of that report to determine if the soil needs to be modified before you begin planting. You can often find Cooperative Extension offices that provide this service, which can help to make your garden flourish.

The techniques discussed here have been pretty straight-forward and easy to follow. You just need a bit of instruction on what to do, then the time to apply what you have learned. Pay close attention to your plants and how they react to your methods. If you find that it’s not working for you, try something different. Your neighbors will envy your garden if you practice patience.
