If you have been dreaming of beautiful, healthy, green plants in a garden that you have cultivated, there are many things to consider so you can achieve that goal. There is much fun and much work involved in gardening. Below you will find some wonderful tips for making horticulture more fun and less work!

TIP! Start your plants in containers, and then transplant the seedlings into the garden later on. This insures that the plants will grow and thrive into adulthood.

Having healthy soil in your garden is your number one defense against pests! If your plants are healthy, they can more easily resist insects and disease. For healthy plants, start with healthy soil that is properly amended and free of chemicals in order to avoid salt accumulation.

TIP! If you want to keep your garden free of pests, start with healthy soil! Healthy plants are stronger and more able to resist both pests and disease. To increase your garden’s likelihood of producing strong and healthy plants, use high-quality soil containing minuscule amounts of chemicals, which will eventually collect salts.

Make sure to pre-soak seeds, preferably in a dark location. Place your seeds in a container filled with water. The water will hydrate the sends, giving them a head start once you plant them. This improves the chances of successful plant development.

TIP! Plants need ample amounts of CO2 to reach their maximum growth. Often, plants achieve better growth when they are surrounded by high levels of CO2.

Try to have a plan with your garden. That way, if you see your plants beginning to bud but can’t recall what they are, you can refer back to your plan to refresh your memory. This is important, because different plants require different care.

TIP! When gardening in the fall, you need to be watching for stink bugs. Stinkbugs are most prevalent on tomatoes, beans and peppers.

Irises can be easily divided. To increase the number that you have, you need to take all your overgrown clumps and split them up. If you notice a dead foliage, lift the bulb. The bulbs often divide in your hand with no intervention on your part, and when you replant them, they will usually flower the following year. Split rhizomes with a knife. From the outside cut the new pieces and then get rid of the old center. Each piece needs one strong offshoot. You also need to make sure that you replant the new pieces as soon as possible.

TIP! Tempt your cat away from the plants he has been bothering by planting catnip or wheat grass near them. You may also place something offensively smelly atop the soil, like citrus peel or mothballs.

Use smarts when watering your garden. To save time, use a soaker type hose so each plant doesn’t need individual watering from the nozzle of a hose or a little watering can. Use low water pressure for your hose so that you do not cause harm to the tender members of your garden. Give it a few hours to water the plants so you have schedule freedom to tend to other matters.

TIP! Place at least an inch of mulch that is organic in with your veggies! Mulch will retain water so that you won’t have to water your plants as often. This method will also prevent weeds.

To defend your garden from errant dogs, spray something with a strong scent, including aftershave or old perfume around the perimeter of the garden. This will help mask the scents that attract your dog, and will make your garden a less interesting place for your pet to be.

TIP! Purchase an inexpensive gardening kneeling pad, as well as a wheelbarrow or wagon. Get a portable stool if you want to garden comfortably without damaging your knees.

To make a creative English garden, include many different kinds of plants and vary their height in the same garden bed. A uniform and flat bed is created by using plants that are the same height.

TIP! Plan your garden, and plant with fall colors in mind. But, that does not have to be the case! Autumn is the most colorful season of all, foliage-wise.

Preparing the soil for your perennial garden is easy. Only a garden spade and woods chips are necessary. To prepare the garden, slice out sheets of turf using the spade, and flip the turf upside down. Then, cover the newly turned soil with wood chips, approximately three inches deep. Let the area sit for a fortnight, then turn the earth and set up your new perennial bed.

TIP! Make a plant you love the focal point of your garden. Gardens are like art; you need to give the piece (or garden) an initial focal point.

Top all your garden beds with several inches of organic mulch. Doing this keeps weeds down, keeps the moisture in your plants, and gives more nutrients to the plants. Also, the flower beds will look beautifully maintained at all times.

TIP! Your children can help you with your garden. You can provide a good learning experience that your children can appreciate the more they learn on how to grow healthy produce.
