When selecting among several varieties of a plant, choose the ones that will produce the largest yield. There are genetically modified plants that resist cold and/or disease. These often give higher yields due to higher survival rates.
Stink bugs can damage your garden, especially if you garden in the fall. These destructive pests enjoy many kinds of fruit, as well as beans, peppers and tomatoes. If left uncontrolled, they can cause substantial damage in your garden, so make plans for how to protect your plants from these pests.
Plant bulbs in your garden if you want flowers through spring and summer. Bulbs are easy to grow and hearty, and they keep growing in years to come. Different types of bulbs bloom at different times, so if you choose appropriately, you can have blooms from early spring to late summer.
When the fall season approaches, you must prepare to plant your favorite fall veggies and other edibles. This year, instead of using your regular clay pots to plant your kale and lettuce, use a pumpkin as the container instead! Scoop the insides out of the pumpkin, and don’t forget to spray the inside with Wilt-Pruf. This will prevent your pumpkin from rotting. Once you have finished, you can begin planting.
When dealing with any type of seeds in horticulture, it’s important that you soak them overnight in a cool, dark location. Soak the seeds by placing them in a container where they are covered with water. This way, your seeds are well-hydrated and can start growing with a head start. This improves the chances of successful plant development.
