Information To Help You Look After Your New Plants
How often you need to water your garden will depend on a variety of factors, including the climate where you live, the time of year, the amount of rainfall you receive, the type of soil you have, where your plants are located in your garden, and whether your plants are in containers or the ground.
One thing will help us, it is to know if your plants are drought – tolerant or on the other hand they prefer moist soil.
The best way to know when to water your garden, it is checking the soil. Stick your fingers about one inch into the soil, if the soil feels dry, it is time to water, if the soil is still moist, wait until it feels dry.
If you have a flower bed with less than three hours or no sun at all, still there are shrubs and perennials that can grow.
Examples of that would be Hydrangeas, Rhododendrons, Ferns.
Also, pretty flowers like Dicentra, Astrantias and the lovely Anemones.
Compost is rich in nutrients, and it can even make nutrients that are already in the soil more readily available to plants.
Mulch is applied normally during the autumn to the soil’s surface in order to discourage weed growth, insulate the soil, retain moisture in the soil, and reduce erosion.
It will depend of what would you like to plant in your garden.
Autumn is the best time for planting shrubs, soft and fruit trees.
During the winter, if the soil let you plant, Roses can be planted.
Spring and summer will be the best time for planting herbaceous perennials.
