When planting perennials, seek out those that are resistant to slugs. It is alarming to see how quickly slugs, and their cousin snails, can annihilate a plant. These pests prefer plants with thin smooth leaves. Plant some helleborus or euphorbias along with your other perennials. Some perennials, however, leave a bad taste in slugs’ mouths or are difficult to chew through because their leaves aren’t tender. A few great choices are achillea, campanula, and heuchera. Other options from which you can choose are hellebourus and euphorbia.
Plant vines like ivy to cover fences and dividing walls. They can be used to cover up unsightly fences or walls. Often, they can grow enough to cover up an eyesore in one season. You don’t have to worry about removing trees between the climbing plants and the fence, because the trees don’t present obstacles to the climbers’ growth. Some people use climbers as a natural “ceiling” to arbors. Some types of climbers support themselves naturally through twining stems or tendrils, but others will have to be attached to something. Trusted variations of climbers are honeysuckle, jasmine, clematis, wisteria and climbing roses.
Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is essential to the growth of plants because of its role in photosynthesis. A major portion of plants grow their best in an environment with a saturated level of CO2. The best way to get higher CO2 for your plants is to grow them in a greenhouse. It’s very important to keep the CO2 levels high so your plants have the best possible growing conditions.
