How to grow herbs
You’ll love working with herbs! They are simple and easy to grow, delicious in the kitchen, and can be grown anywhere you have a little bit of sun. You don’t need a lot of space to make it happen. Some even thrive on neglect!
A good rule of thumb for choosing herbs is if you like the flavor, then chances are you will enjoy growing that herb. Herbs also vary in shapes and sizes so try to think about how you want your garden to look as well as what types of culinary uses you desire from your crop. For example, basil is great for making pesto but requires lots of sun and water whereas rosemary has a more savory taste which tends to compliment hearty meats but can survive with less maintenance.
Container gardening is an easy way to grow plants in a small space, or when the soil in your yard isn’t great. Plants can be grown at different levels of the container, or grouped by color or height. There are seemingly endless and creative options for what types of containers can be used based on how you want your garden to look! You can even use a repurposed piece of furniture like an old dresser or armoire. You may also want to consider using container gardening if you are growing vegetables that are difficult to grow in your area, such as citrus fruits.
Flower gardening tips and tricks
Once you’ve decided your flower garden will be a place to relax and find peace, you’ll want to choose flowers that reflect your personality. Are you a fan of bold, colorful flowers? Or are soft pastels more your style?
It’s important to know whether the flowers you choose for your garden will survive the climate in your area. You can get this information from the staff at your local garden center or simply do an internet search.
You can either plant from seeds or seedlings, but if you don’t have much experience with gardening, it might be easier to start with seedlings. The advantage of planting from seeds is that they are usually very inexpensive. Seedlings cost more than seeds, but they also take less time to grow and can be planted outdoors in late spring when the weather warms up rather than indoors several weeks before then as is required with growing plants from seeds.
Spring is typically the best time of year for planting both seeds and seedlings outdoors so they have time to grow before winter comes again next year! The soil should be warm enough that it won’t freeze over night but not too hot during daytime hours so as not burn off moisture needed by young plants trying their hardest at life just yet… They need all the help we humans can give them!
Garden maintenance during the seasons
Spring is the first season of the year, which means it’s time to start planting new seeds and taking care of your garden. When you’ve just planted your seeds and they haven’t fully sprouted yet, make sure you follow these tips:
- Keep your garden moist but don’t over-water it—you don’t want to drown the plants.
- If you didn’t water your soil before planting your seeds, do it now. You can also add mulch on top of the soil to help keep the moisture in.
- If a frost is predicted while you’re waiting for plants to sprout from their seeds, cover them with a sheet or tarp at night so that frost doesn’t damage them.
Summer is in full swing by July and August, so this is a good time for doing some maintenance work on your garden:
- Keep weeds at bay by removing them when they are small; otherwise they will compete with your crops for nutrients in the soil. Keep an eye out for pests as well—if you see any holes in leaves or insects crawling around then use insecticidal soap or neem oil spray to get rid of them before they cause too much damage!
Garden pests and how to keep them away from your plants
When you’re working hard on your garden, it’s frustrating when your plants are constantly attacked by pests. Sure, you can spray them with insecticides, but wouldn’t it be nice to keep the pests away naturally and reduce your environmental impact at the same time?
Whether you have a vegetable or flower garden, here are some natural pest control methods that will help you get rid of common garden pests.
Indoor plant care tips
Indoor gardening is becoming more and more popular. You may have started growing a few plants around your home, but how do you properly care for them?
Although indoor plants are generally a lot easier to care for than outdoor plants, they still need attention. If you know how to properly care for your indoor plants, they will provide years of enjoyment. What should you know before you start caring for your collection of houseplants?
The first thing to consider is the plant’s natural habitat and what it needs to thrive indoors. An easy way to remember this is by remembering the four basics that all houseplants need. These include proper lighting, watering, humidity, and temperature. Your unique environment will determine how much of each of these elements your plant will require in order to thrive.

- Use a bookshelf or shelves – These are perfect for small spaces and can easily be customized for any space. They work best for plants that need more room than most because they will all have enough space to grow in their own sections of the shelf.
- Create a tiered planter – This is good for people who want a larger garden but don’t have room on the ground. You can easily make it yourself with some wood, nails and paint!
- Grow an indoor plant wall – This is an easy project that anyone can do at home using simple materials like PVC pipes or wallpaper paste (which makes removing them easier). The best part is that you won’t have any ugly holes left behind after taking care of this type of hanging planter!
- Build an indoor greenhouse – For those who want something bigger than what they’re able to do on their own but still don’t have room outside in their yard or inside their house, building an indoor greenhouse is perfect as long as it’s big enough to hold all of their plants without overcrowding them from each other too much so there’s still plenty of air circulation around each individual pot/plant box/container for proper growth too!
- Use old picture frames…
How to plant a moon garden?
Moonlight gardens are designed to be viewed at night, not during the day. Moonlight gardens are often planted with white or silver-leaved plants, which reflect the moonlight and tend to glow in it for a truly magical effect. Additionally, moonlight gardens are also planted with plants that have a strong scent, which is more noticeable at night.
Moonlight gardens can be created anywhere you want them, but the best locations for viewing these unique gardens is from an outdoor room such as a patio or terrace where you can sit and bask in the glow of your beautiful nighttime garden.
If you are just planning a small section of your garden as a moonlight garden, plant it in front of an existing fence so that light will reflect off the fence behind it. This will enhance the light and color effects of your moonlight garden even more!
How to grow Coleus or Flame Nettle as an annual?
In today’s blog post, we will be going over the Coleus or Flame Nettle.
Coleus is a genus of flowering plants in the family Lamiaceae. The genus name was given in 1814 by Thomas Andrew Knight, to honor a Mr. Cole who had cultivated new species of this plant in England.
There are about 150 species in the genus and they are native to tropical Africa, Asia, and Australia, but only a few are grown as potted plants for their attractive foliage. They typically grow as annuals in temperate climates and are easily propagated by cuttings. Many cultivars have been selected with variegated foliage; some have been bred to tolerate full sun or shady conditions.
