7 GENERAL GARDENING TIPS

7 GENERAL GARDENING TIPS

1. First of all, think about the time you are going to dedicate to it. 

Each plant needs different care. If you are going to spend little time or only on weekends, start with simple plants that need little care. Normally, native plants are the ones that need the least care since they are perfectly acclimatized to our climate. The succulent plant is an example of a plant that needs little care. In this link we explain it to you. 

2. Keep an agenda of your plants:

Find information about the plant you have and write down its flowering period, fertilizer and, if necessary, pruning.

3. Keep pots and plants clean and free of dead leaves and flowers.

If weeds appear, remove them as soon as possible so that all the nutrients from the soil are only absorbed by our plant. 

4. If your plants are flowery. You can apply this to get plants with more flowers:

Buy plants with few flowers but with closed buds. Then place them in a place that has a lot of light, the soil that has a light humidity and a fertilizer rich in potassium and phosphorus. 

5. If what you have is a garden with grass, take the opportunity to plant plants that need more watering right on the edges of the lawn, since that is where more water accumulates.

6. When you water the plants, always do it on the ground and never on the leaves or flowers as they can rot and are more prone to pests. If possible use lukewarm irrigation water. 

7. It is very important that the soil is aerated.

Every once in a while, aerate the soil with the help of a rake. We hope that with these simple tips you will be encouraged to have plants at home or in your garden. We await your opinion and if you want you can share it on your social networks so that your friends can enjoy these tips, and their plants are also beautiful.
