Many consider horticulture to be a relaxing and stress relieving hobby. A lot of gardeners ask questions like what kind of equipment they should buy, what kind of soil should they purchase, or when they should plant seeds. This article can help those interested in doing gardening.

To prevent your plants from getting shocked by a big change, get them gradually used to climate and temperature changes. Try placing them outside in sunlight for about an hour or maybe two the first day. Over one week, gradually build up the amount of hours you leave the plants outside. Hopefully, after about a week or so, your plants should have adjusted to the change. Now you can transplant them without any worries.

Flower Beds

Give your flower beds a boost by introducing annuals and biennials. Annuals and biennials that grow quickly can really wake up your flower beds, and they allow you to have a new garden look every season or every year, if you choose to. These kinds of flowers are also excellent for filling in gaps between shrubs and perennials in sunny areas. There are many flowers you can plant in these gaps. Try marigolds, petunias or sunflowers for a brighter garden.

For showy flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant plenty of bulbs. Most bulbs are extremely hearty and grow easily. They also come back year after year. Different bulbs bloom at various times, so choosing appropriately, you may have blooms early spring to later summer.

TIP! You must be sure to remove all of the weeds that grow in your garden. Weeds steal nutrients from plants, robbing a garden of its potential harvest.

Consider growing wheat grass or cat grass near the plants your cat enjoys eating. You could also place mothballs and citrus peels around your plants to keep your cat away.

Set your mower blades higher, so you don’t cut the grass too short. If you leave some of the grass when you mow, the roots grow further into the ground, which makes the grass less prone to drying and other hazards. When grass is cut too low the roots will not grow as deep, and your lawn may suffer from brown patches.

If you would love to have access to fresh and healthy mint leaves from your own back yard, but dread the way the plant spreads so quickly, worry not. Rein in their growth by planting the mint in a large pot or garden container instead. You can simply put the container below the soil level. Once you do, the container will constrain the roots, preventing them from overshadowing all of your other plants.

TIP! If you have planted vegetables within your garden, make sure that they are getting at least six hours of sunlight each day. Proper sunlight is a prerequisite for proper growth.

As you now have discovered, horticulture can be a fun, productive and rewarding activity if you invest a little time into gaining a bit of knowledge before you begin. When you implement good advice and carefully plan your garden, you’ll reap many rewards. If you follow the advice given in this article, you will soon enjoy your own beautiful garden.
