In order not to shock your plants, you have to gradually accustom them to the change of temperature and conditions. The first day you transfer your plants, you should only allow them to sit in direct sunlight for a few hours. Throughout the week, you should leave your plants out for a little longer each day.

Make sure your soil is healthy enough before you start planting anything.

The best gardens from an environmental standpoint originate from seeds, instead of plants. When planting a garden, the best way is to initially start with seeds.

Consider planting evergreens that produce berries in your yard. Your yard will then have bright spots of color all year round, which is especially cheerful in the winter when all of your other flora is bare or colorless. The American Holly, American Cranberrybush, the Winterberry, and the Common Snowberry help provide color during the winter.

Potted Plants

TIP! Do not use broad-spectrum pesticides within your garden. Besides killing the insects you don’t want, this type of pesticide will also kill beneficial insects.

When you boil vegetables, use the leftover water on your potted plants. If you have rhododendrons or gardenias, use coffee and tea grounds to acidify the soil. If fungus is ravaging your potted plants, sprinkle a bit of Chamomile tea on them, and see if it helps.

TIP! Try to relax with gardening. There are a variety of ways to achieve a state of inner peace.

Pick one plant to serve as your garden’s focal point. Gardens are like art; you need to give the piece (or garden) an initial focal point. In most cases, an original plant makes a good focal point.

Avoid damage from the sun by dressing correctly when you garden. Wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Proper protection from the sun means a lower chance of sunburn, as well as a decreased risk of skin cancer.

TIP! You never want to do any gardening with open wounds, so make sure everything is completely healed up before you begin; otherwise, you run the risk of your cut being exposed to dangerous chemicals and dirt. A cut may become badly infected if it’s exposed to a lot of dirt or grime when you garden.

Heather beds are typically left untouched, which is why helpful little critters like ground beetles and spiders call them home. Always remember this, and wear your horticulture gloves if you prune your heather!

TIP! If you’re planning on gardening inside, the first thing you should consider is an adequate light source. If the room you wish to grow them in faces in a direction that gets little light, choose varieties of plants which can accept this type of environment.
