Your plants need to adapt and must be gradually introduced to changes in temperature or condition. Place them outdoors in the sun for about an hour or two on the first day. Throughout the week, gradually increase the time they are spent outside. At the end of a week, they should be accustomed to the outdoors and ready to transition to outside safely.
Plants that climb can hide fences and walls. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just 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. There are those that have to be fixed to a support, but others will find a surface to cling to all on their own through twining stems or tendrils. Some dependable types include honeysuckle, clematis, jasmine, climbing roses, and wisteria.
Don’t cut your grass down by the soil when you run the mower. If you let your grass keep some height after mowing, it will be able to absorb more sun and moisture resulting in a lusher, greener lawn. The shorter the grass, the shallower the roots, which makes the lawn more likely to develop brown patches.
Try to keep your plants aerated and dry, every day. Moisture on plants is sure to attract disease and parasites. Fungi are a very common and irritating pest in the world of gardening. Proactively treat fungi through the use of fungicidal sprays and treatments.
Be sure your garden is fertilized. Manure is an excellent fertilizer, but it needs to be combined with a synthetic compost to stop diseases from infecting your plants. There are numerous types of fertilizers available. What type you select is less of a concern; any kind of fertilizer is better than none.
