VINE AND SHRUB GARDEN PART TWO - IN SEASON GARDENING
I did not intend to write this blog post as a "How to" post. There are plenty of wonderful gardening guides out there. If this subject interests you at all you can find all sorts of information from all sorts of sources. However, it's just not the same with a book. When I am gardening I want it to be about the garden and the results of my gardening. It is not a step-by-step process of how to do it in a perfect garden. All of the gardens I have designed are in areas of poor soil. That is a requirement of the location of the site. Gardeners don't always have a choice. They are just stuck with whatever type of soil and water the ground can provide. But I think people like me who can take a plant from a nursery and make it thrive in a variety of soil and rain conditions can provide a lot of pleasure for others. To me, gardening has become a pleasure because of what I have learned about what plants will do and how to encourage those plant behaviors in the garden. The goal of garden design is to use the landscape to produce as many things as possible while providing a good habitat for the local fauna and flora. We are not in Kansas anymore, folks. When I garden I go beyond simple plants and soil enrichment. I make certain that the vegetation in the garden are more involved with the environment around them. They're not just sitting there, waiting to be fertilized. I also believe that all the plants we grow are the "gardeners" of the environment around them. The more we encourage that, the more we can get out of what a location has to offer us. So, the goal here is not "How to Grow a Wonderful Garden" and it isn't about "Dumping Soil and Water Everywhere" so we can say, "Look! I am a great gardener." Nix. The goal here is to get more out of what the garden provides. We have to get the most out of it.
As far as what you are looking for, I don't know about the other readers, but I have found in my gardening that I am really looking to see how my plants are doing. You may know that there are plants that do not like to have a lot of water in their roots. If you over water those plants, they will not do well. But they may not be the most visually attractive plant. You don't need to have a lot of water in their roots to get them to grow. You also need to know how you want your garden to perform so you don't water them to death. You also need to know how you want to grow your garden to ensure you don't over water those plants. The more we learn and understand how our plants work, the more we can use that information to make the plants perform for us.
Here's another tip from my experience. It can be said that plants can provide us with a great deal of food. Just ask any gardener and they will tell you that they have eaten their daily allotment of food from their garden. You don't have to give them a lot of water. You don't have to worry about providing them with fertilizer. All you have to do is keep a close eye on them and you will be successful.
The most important thing you can do is not over water your plants. Plants should only be watered when they are actually needing water. The easiest way to tell if a plant is thirsty is to check its leaves. If you find the leaves to be dry, or brown and curled up, they are probably thirsty. When a plant is thirsty, it's going to need a little more water, but it will also need to be watered more often than normal. This is where you should look. You should check your plants to see how they are performing, and then you will know when you need to water them.
My mother has always told me that when it rains, she's going to need to look for the plants that are thirsty. She says they are the ones that need water. I have found that to be the case over the years. The plants that need water are the ones that are dry, curled up, and brown. When you go outside to water your plants and you see plants like this, you should assume that they are thirsty. If your soil has water in it, you should sprinkle some of that on the plants as well. The plants will use that water for their survival, and that's what you want for them.
In conclusion, there are certain things that you should consider when you are growing your garden. You want to know the correct growing techniques and you also want to know how to care for your garden. To make sure that you grow your garden, you need to know how to water it and when to water it. You should know what to do when you have too much sun and when you have too little.Du bør have en god idé om, hvordan du plejer din have.
