Does it always seem like the grass is greener on your neighbor’s side of the fence? You might believe that your next-door neighbor has a special formula for a beautiful yard that no one else knows about. Truth is, they aren’t doing anything overly amazing. All it requires is knowledge to take proper care of plants. You can start educating yourself by checking out the gardening tips that follow.
Plants need ample amounts of CO2 to reach their maximum growth. More CO2 generally produces more luxurious plant growth. A greenhouse is the best way to create an environment rich in CO2. To achieve optimal growing conditions, keep the levels of carbon dioxide high in your plants’ environment.
For showy flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant plenty of bulbs. Not only are bulbs hearty and easy to grow, but they’ll continue to grow as time goes on. You can select bulbs that bloom at many different times, so with a little work, you could have flowers popping up all the way from the start of spring to the end of summer.
Pre-soak seeds overnight in a dark place. Place a small amount of seeds in a little container, while filling it to the brim with water. This will keep your seeds hydrated and give you a little head start with your growing. The seeds will now have a greater chance of maturing and surviving.
Grow some wheat grass or cat grass next to the plants your cat seems to prefer. You can put something over the soil which surrounds the plants which has a bad smell to cats to deter them.
Most of these tips are easy to apply in your own setting. All you have to do is implement what you have just learned. Pay attention to how your plants respond to the methods that you use. Refine your methods as you go! Be patient and your garden will eventually be envied by your neighbors.
