To prevent your plants’ systems from becoming shocked, you need to gradually transition them from higher to lower temperatures. Try to place them in the new area for a couple of hours at a time the first day. Over the week, try gradually increasing the time they’re left outside. At the end of a week, they should be accustomed to the outdoors and ready to transition to outside safely.
Choose the varieties of plants that will produce a higher yield. There are genetically modified plants that resist cold and/or disease. These often give higher yields due to higher survival rates.
Try using annuals and biennials to add color to your flower beds, and brighten them up. These fast growth plants make flower beds vibrant, and they let you alter the appearance seasonally and annually. They are very helpful when trying to fill in gaps between shrubs and perennials in an area that is sunny. Some excellent choices include rudbeckia, hollyhock, sunflower, cosmos, petunia and marigold.
Cover fences and walls with lots of climbers. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season. Climbers can also be trained to grow and cover an arbor, and they will grow through or around existing trees and shrubs. There are natural climbers, which use tendrils or stems to wrap around any given surface, while others must be tied with a string or rope. There are many varieties you can choose from. Honeysuckle, climbing roses and jasmine are among the best.
Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. This time, use a pumpkin for the container for your lettuce and kale, instead of plain clay pots. Once you cut an opening at the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the insides, spray the inside and edges with Wilt-Pruf to keep the pumpkin from rotting. After you have finished this, you will be ready to start planting.
If you want your garden to be off-limits to your dog, spray a scented perimeter around it using things like old perfumes or aftershave. This can help mask any scents which attract animals so pets will now avoid the garden.
