Gradually acclimate plants to temperature changes and conditions, if you want to avoid shocking them. When starting the transition, leave the plants in the sun for just 1-2 hours. 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.
When choosing plants, pick those that produce a high yield. Frequently, a hybrid that is able to deal with extreme temperatures will bring higher yields than the more traditional variety of a plant.
Make garden tools do double duty as handy makeshift rulers. Larger handled tools like rakes, hoes, and shovels make great measuring sticks. Place the handles on the floor to measure the distance between them. Mark your distances with a permanent marker. Next time you are working in the garden, you will have a large ruler at your fingertips!
For proper optimum growth, plants require sufficient amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). When exposed to high levels of CO2, most types of plants will grow better. The best way to get a lot of it is through a greenhouse. For the best growing conditions you should keep the CO2 levels high.
If you want your garden to sport flowers in the spring as well as summer, plant bulbs. Planting and growing bulbs is very simple, and once planted the bulbs will grow for years. Specific types of bulbs usually bloom at specific times of the season, so if you make appropriate selections, you can be rewarded with blooms from the early part of spring to the later part of summer.
Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. Try something different by planing kale or lettuce inside a pumpkin, instead of using the planter pots you traditionally use. After cutting an opening and removing the meat and seeds from inside the pumpkin, use Wilt-Pruf, sprayed throughout the inside and cut edges, and prevent rot from occurring. Once you’ve done that, you can plant!
When mowing your lawn, be careful not to cut the grass too far down. When the grass is a little longer, the roots will be stronger and the lawn becomes more resistant. When you cut the grass too short, the roots are often not deep enough, which causes your lawn to have dry patches of brown, discolored grass.
