Use this article to find some ideas on how to grow a better garden this year. Here you will find out the basic equipment and general techniques that are used in gardening so that your efforts are effective and efficient.
Digging in hard clay soil is made even more difficult because it sticks to the shovel. To make digging clay soil easier, try applying a light coating of wax, either car wax or floor wax, and then buff off and commence digging. The clay won't stick to it, and the end will not rust as an added bonus.
Don't count the fall season out. That doesn't have to be the case. When it comes to vibrant color, the bright foliage of fall beats all the other seasons. Maple, beech, and dogwood trees are many colors in the fall, from yellow to a deeper crimson. Shrubs such as barberry, cotoneaster and hydrangea all have gorgeous fall foliage.
The prevent your dog from trampling through your garden, spray some old aftershave, perfume or other heavily scented things on the grass around your plants. This will work to mask any scent that is attracting dogs, and will make the garden a much less interesting place to for dogs to be.
Any time that you are gardening in direct sunlight, dress appropriately to prevent skin damage. Pair sunglasses with wide-brimmed hats and a dab of sunblock. Protecting yourself from the sun will lower your chances of getting skin cancer, as well as prevent premature aging from sun damage.
The flesh of vegetables gets soft in the heat of the day, making them especially vulnerable to inadvertent damage with even the gentlest picking. Make sure to chop the vegetables off the vine, but be careful not to twist them. Twisting can actually damage the plant.
Creating a beautiful garden takes a little research, the right equipment, and enough time to enjoy tending it. This work will show when you see all of your plants grow!
