Whether we’re talking about a garden, a yard, or just a little corner that you set aside in your home to enjoy the greenery, in spring, there are some basic steps that will help you make your relaxation area even more enjoyable.
The time has come to take care of the plants.
Here are a few tips on how to freshen up your garden and make your relaxation spot even more enjoyable.
As you could probably guess:
One of the first things you should do is clear the places where the dried leaves and twigs have gathered.
You can store some of them and use them for fun activities with your kids. Find out how in one of our previous articles where we shared how to spend creative and quality time with your kids.
When you're ready, it's time to turn over the soil around the plants. This will help prevent some pests from appearing. It would be even better to replant the flowers and move them to a larger pot. You will notice how the plant will freshen up very quickly.
Now is the right time for planting and replanting. If you enjoy orchids and want to keep them healthy, now is the time to do so. Be careful with them because they are fragile and needy plants.
If you are one of the people who loves spices, we suggest that you set up your little corner with thyme, rosemary, parsley, dill, basil.
Avoid doing this at noon because of the direct sunlight that can hurt the leaves.
It's better to do it in the morning or late afternoon.
For single-bloom bulbs and spring flowering species, you can provide a sunny spot with moist soil. The plants that would feel great outside are: violets, primroses, anemones, buttercups, all kinds of aroma-rich flowers such as snowdrops, tulips, irises, hyacinths, etc.
When grafting in a pot, it is good to know that you shouldn’t leave hollow spaces when inserting the new soil. It is dangerous for the health of the flower.
Choose a suitable pot and even slightly larger than the previous one. This will allow the plant to grow.
Also, be careful while watering the grafted flower so as not to flood it.
If you are lucky enough to have a large garden and grow not only decorative flowers, now is the time to transfer the cuttings and seeds that you planted in the fall to larger pots before moving them to permanent soil.
At the same time, add fertilizers to them. If you notice decay or splits in the seedlings - reduce watering and move the pots out of direct sunlight.
By the end of April, it is advisable to add organic fertilizers with a high nitrogen content in soil areas with perennial flowers. After that it is important to loosen the soil around permanent crops.
Provide oxygen to the roots by regularly loosening the soil around the plants in the garden. This will provide more oxygen that will reach their roots. Inspect the flowers on the balcony for overblown ends and remove them as they are an incubator for diseases and pests. When you see a plant budding, it is advisable to nourish it to stimulate the emergence of more buds to bloom and decorate your garden. Use warm rainy days to bathe the flowers.
In designing River Park, apart from building a suitable home, we emphasized on the environment. That is why we have preserved more than 75% of the vegetation on the territory of the complex, planning additional planting and landscaping.
