There are many things to consider when striving for beautiful and healthy garden plants. Gardening can require a large amount of ongoing work, although many find it to be fun, rewarding and even therapeutic. Here are a collection of nifty little gardening tips that will make the your time spent outside more fun and less demanding.

Utilize your garden tool handles as convenient makeshift rulers. You can use shovels or rakes as measuring sticks. Lay the handles upon the floor and use a tape measure along side of them. Paying close attention to the measurements, use a black marker to establish each interval along the handle’s side in a clearly visible manner. When you are at work in the garden, you will always have a handy measuring device on each and every tool.

TIP! So that you don’t shock your plants, try gradually accustoming them to conditions and temperature. The first day you transfer your plants, you should only allow them to sit in direct sunlight for a few hours.

When you are mowing your lawn do not cut it too closely to the dirt. If you leave more height to your grass, the roots will grow deeper into the soil, making the lawn stronger and more resistant to drying out. Short grass leads to more shallow roots and will result in more brown, dried-out patches.

Allow enough room between plants for air to circulate, so that plants do not stay too wet. Moisture on plants is sure to attract disease and parasites. A fungus is one of the most important and debilitating parasites for plants. Fungus can be handled with sprays specifically formulated for fungi control, but you must treat the area with spray before seeing any kind of problems.

A great garden starts from the seeds and not from the plants. Planting seeds is the most eco-friendly way to start a new garden. Many nurseries use plastic growing pots that are very seldom recycled. Try buying from organic nurseries and farms so your garden is not using anti-environmental products.

TIP! Shoveling clay is very difficult and lots of work because the clay is hard and sticks to the shovel, making it tough to handle. Rub a thin layer of floor or car wax over the surface of the shovel, and then buff the surface using a clean cloth.

Fertilize your garden. Choose commercial compost instead of homegrown manure to keep toxins out of your plants. You have many different choices for fertilizer; choose whichever is best-suited to your plants but definitely use one.

Pest control can present a challenge for successful vegetable horticulture. Don’t spray harsh chemicals since they will spoil your veggies. You can prevent pests from appearing in the garden by adopting a vigilant attitude. If you find any unwanted pests, try removing them by hand.

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.
