A garden really has a deeper meaning than just being a bunch of different kinds of plants put together. It's not even necessary that you have a green thumb. It can bring you tranquility, peace, and a great appreciation for life. If you become a avid gardener, it will have a great effect on your way of living.
Always allow your plants to adapt gradually to any changes in light conditions, temperatures or soils, if you do not, you might shock them and cause them to die. Put the plants outside in the sun for one to two hours in the beginning. Slowly, day after day, you can leave your plants outside for a little longer. By weeks end, you should have plants that are ready for a permanent home outside with no problem!
Think about starting plants in pots, and then placing the seedlings in the garden later. Doing this will increase the survival rate of all your outdoor plants. In addition, it offers you a smaller time frame between plantings. Your seedlings will be ready to be planted when you remove your old mature plants.
Before you plant anything in your garden, have the soil checked. Pay a small fee to have your soil analyzed, and you'll be glad that you did when you understand what nutrients your soil is lacking. You can often find Cooperative Extension offices that provide this service, which can help to make your garden flourish.
Do not mow your lawn close to the bottom. By leaving your grass a little higher off the ground, it give the roots a chance to grow deep into the soil which makes the lawn stronger, and that helps keep it from drying out. Short grass is more prone to getting dried out and turning brown.
Use the above tips to revitalize your garden. It is a decision you will not regret, especially when you see all your plants alive and blooming. Gardening can have a powerful effect on your life, so give it a try.
