A Beautiful Garden of Flowers
You can make your garden of flowers the attraction of the neighborhood. As a gardener, knowing how to improve it can make the difference. The healthier your garden the better it will look. Usually a good looking garden will be a healthy garden.
Here are simple ways to make your garden of flowers bloom more for your gardening heart’s content:
1. The essentials must always be given major consideration.
Just like with any gardening endeavor, a garden of flowers must have its adequate supply of water, light, and fertile soil. To lack one of these gardening necessities is almost preparing the death bed of your garden flower.
Water the garden of flowers more frequently during dry spells. Also, make sure that you plant the flower bulbs deep enough to provide sufficient room for the rooting.
2. Mix and match perennials with annuals.
Perennial flower bulbs need not to be replanted since they grow and bloom for several years while annuals grow and bloom for only one season. Mixing a few perennials with annuals ensures that the show goes on with your garden.
3. Deadhead to encourage more blossoms.
Deadheading is simply snipping off the flower head after it wilts. This will make the plant grow more and produce more flowers. Just make sure that you don’t discard the deadhead on the garden or mildew and other plant disease will attack your plants.
4. Know the good bugs from the bad bugs.
Do you know that most garden insects do more good than harm? Butterflies, flies, beetles and bees are known as pollinators. They fertilize plants through unintentional transfer of pollen from one plant to another. And 80% of flowering plants rely on them for survival.
Why do you think flowers are that colorful and pretty? I’ll bet you thought it was to make humans more fond of them? It’s actually to lure more insects.
Sowbugs and dung beetles together with fungi, bacteria and other microorganisms make the soil friendlier to plants. This is because they subsist on dead materials, breaking them into simpler molecules that fertilize the soil. These bugs are known as the ever trusty decomposers.
Now you don’t just shoo away bugs whenever you see any. Choose your enemies.
With loads of information in mind and practiced, your garden of flowers will surely thank you with a breath taking view when it’s time for them to bloom again.
