The first signs of autumn are noticeable in our neighbourhood. Autumn generally has its appeal but many things that were cultivated during the spring and the summer are lost. Luckily, all through autumn and into the beginning of winter, we can enjoy selected plants that don't require the warmth of the earlier seasons.
What can you do once the flowers start to put on a rusty aspect and trees start to lose their leaves? Autumn has been announced, and the cold season that follows requires gardens to be prepared. The vegetation and the trees in the garden need help to survive until the spring. Here are some useful recommendations that would help you to prepare the garden for the autumn.
Trees need to be made ready for the cold of wintertime by being tidied. Nearly all that you need to have is a pair of garden shears to remove the dead branches. These contain the risk of suffocating the healthy branches by hindering sunlight from getting through. It is not truly accurate to think that dead leaves automatically equate to enriching the soil. Leaves could be taken over with a disease which later will negatively impact the soil.
A high-potassium fertilizer is definitely something you must take care of the soil with. Refuge from winter cold is furnished by the shielding layer. This is the optimal opportunity for planting those blossoms that will bloom in the spring. New fertilizer should be laid down after getting rid of any old layers. If you insist on using dead leaves to cover the soil, make sure that you choose healthy ones and disperse them out in a consistent layer.
If you want evergreen plants and flowers in your garden, the beginning of October is the ideal time of the year to plant them. Get ready for planting by watering the soil one or two days earlier. After you've planted any bulbs you must water them, but you should never overdo it. It could be a silly waste to give your plants water just before a huge downpour, and possibly cause them damage, so always factor in the expected weather.
The earth also needs to be turned in autumn. You must dig a minimum of 15 cm deep. Before rotating the soil, all loose vegetation including leaves and fallen fruits must be cleaned up and removed. Diseaseless leaves and fruit are perfect for enriching the soil, so only burn them when they are not healthy.
Your lawn always needs work. Getting this all set for winter requires 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.
Seeing that October may be the perfect month for those tasks, you can keep all your tools out and take the opportunity to move the plants from one place or another before the winter. A blanket of foil is just the thing to stop your heat-loving decorative plants from freezing. Nearly all plants will be adequately shielded by two plies of foil. The light reflected by snow is quite harsh, so give protection to especially the younger plants by painting their bottom sections.
