Just like your home, your garden needs some special treatment with every seasonal change. If you enjoy taking care of your garden, here are some great gardening tips that will definitely help maintain your garden and keep it beautiful and bountiful until the next season comes knocking at our door.
Get Rid of Unwanted Growth
Autumn is the best time to clean up all the unwanted growth in your garden. This includes weeds, nuisance plants and dead leaves. You can use a rake or your hands to pull them out and gather them in one spot and then mow them with a grass catcher.
Bring in Sensitive Bulbs
Not all outdoor plants can survive the cold weather. Make sure you dig up and bring in any sensitive bulbs to make sure they survive until next spring.
Plant Some Autumn Plants
Many people assume that autumn is the end of gardening and they are very mistaken. There are many beautiful autumn plants that could keep your garden looking great and that can withstand the weather changes. Such plants include kale, pansies and asters.
Make New Herbs from Old Ones
Use your existing herbs to breed new ones; it is very simple and doesn’t take much time or effort. All you need to do is take 10 cm from your hardwood herbs, remove the lower leaves, dip them in a hormone powder then plant them in a small pot.
Support Your Climbing Vines
Use an old ladder to support any climbing vines you have. You can even get creative and paint the ladder to transform the overall look of your garden.
Take Car of Plant Containers
Be sure to wash all your unused containers, dry them and store them upside down in a dry place away from humidity. This will ensure that they don’t crack in the winter.
Pay Attention to Your Power Equipment
If you have any power equipment in your garden, such as a lawnmower, make sure to drain the fuel from them before winter. You owner’s manual can help you find out how to do that properly.
