The initial clues of autumn are evident in our neighbourhood. Autumn frequently has its allure but many things that were raised during the spring and the summer are lost. Fortunately, throughout autumn and into the start of winter, we can enjoy certain plants that don't require the warmth of the earlier seasons.
What can we do if the flowers start to gain a rusty aspect and trees start to lose their leaves? Those tend to be the first evidence of the autumn, so you must prepare the garden for the cold season. The plant life and the trees within your garden need protection to survive until the spring. Here are several practical tips that would help you to prepare the garden for the autumn.
Trees have to be readied for the cold of winter by being tidied. All that you need to get is a pair of garden shears to eliminate the dead branches. These have the potential of suffocating the healthy branches by preventing sunlight from getting through. Numerous people are under the flawed impression that dead leaves are actually a great natural source of fertilizer. Leaves could be taken over with a disease which later will negatively impact the soil.
A high-potassium fertilizer is definitely something you have to take care of the soil with. The plants will likely be protected against the cold of winter by the protective layer. It's the ideal opportunity for planting those plants 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 coat 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 best time of the year to plant them. Get ready for planting by means of watering the soil one or two days in advance. After you've planted any bulbs you have to water them, but you should never overdo it. It would be a foolish waste to give your plants water just before a large downpour, and possibly cause them damage, so always take stock of the expected weather.
The earth must also be turned in autumn. You should drill down a minimum of 15 cm deep. Before tilling the soil, all loose vegetation including leaves and fallen fruits must be removed. Diseaseless leaves and fruit are great for enriching the soil, so only burn them if they're not healthy.
A person's lawn also requires work. Getting it all all set for winter consists of mowing it as short as you can. Remember that there are fertilizers which 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. 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 coming from the snow from damaging it.
