Our garden by now mirrors the arrival of autumn. Autumn frequently has its allure but many things that were cultivated during the spring and the summer are lost. Not everything is lost, though, as there are lovely plants we can grow that will please us right up to the early part of winter.
Dropping leaves and flowers failing to keep their color trigger thoughts of necessary activities. Those are the first indicators of the autumn, so you have to prepare the garden for the cold season. Between now and spring harsh conditions will set in, which could damage or destroy the things living in your garden if they are not protected. There a range of details that should be done to prepare the garden.
Trees must be made ready for the cold of winter by being tidied. Nearly all that you need to buy is a pair of garden shears to clear away the dead branches. These contain the potential of suffocating the healthy branches by preventing sunlight from getting through. Numerous people are under the flawed impression that dead leaves are a great natural source of fertilizer. Many of the leaves might carry problems, affecting the soil later.
A high-potassium fertilizer is definitely something you have to take care of the soil with. The plants will be protected against the cold of winter by the protective layer. It's the optimal opportunity for planting those plants that will bloom in the spring. New fertilizer should be laid down after getting rid of any old layers. Exclusively disease-free dead leaves, if perhaps you want to rely on them, may be spread evenly as a soil covering.
If you want evergreen plants and flowers in your garden, the beginning of October is the best time of the year to plant them. Get ready for planting by watering the soil one or two days in advance. After you've planted any bulbs you must water them, but you should never overdo it. Take care to take into account the weather, since watering prior to heavy rain will not only be a waste of time and water but also create a threat to your plants.
The earth must also be turned in autumn. You must drill down a minimum of 15 cm deep. Before you decide to undertake this job, you must get rid of any vegetation including fruits and leaves from the soil. Never burn the vegetation if it's healthy, since it could be utilized to fertilize the soil in a natural way.
Remember in regards to your grass. Getting this all set for winter consists of mowing it as short as you can. Remember that there are fertilizers that are exclusively made to maintain your lawn's health, so feed it that.
It might be easier to accomplish all these projects and move plants around if you leave garden implements out during October, which is the best month for these activities. The exotic decoratives that take advantage of the hot seasons should be protected against freezing by means of a foil shield. Only two coatings of foil are enough, depending on the measurements the plant. It's essential to also paint the lower base of the plant, especially for the younger ones as this will keep the harsh reflective light from the snow from damaging it.
