How to succeed your Plants and Garden?

Best way to succeed plants in your garden is to carefully examine what it is possible to do: first. Assess its needs, the time available and the budget available: then. Measure the share of the dream and strive to make its desires and reality coincide; Finally. Simplify the task to the maximum, so that pleasure will outweigh the constraints.

What is space? A window sill or a small balcony

-Basic Precautions:

Check that the planters are properly hung and that the saucers placed underneath collect the water. It is not a question of knocking or flooding passers-by or the neighbor below.

-Choice of plants:

prefer fast-growing plants, of which you will often be able to collect leaves. Consider the duration of daily Sunshine Basil, marjoram, perennial celery. Coriander and anise full sun, parsley, chives, dill, chervil, mint, and tarragon require five hours of minimum sunshine.

Choice of containers:

suspensions hanging from the window or flaps. Planters are easier to remember than several pots thanks to a more substantial volume of land. Plants are more resistant to drought and temperature differences.

A large balcony or a courtyard

Basic precautions:

Check which load can support the balcony and choose the pots according to these criteria (the plastic is the lightest material). Install wind protection if necessary. In a courtyard, if the floor is loose install plants in the open ground.

Choice of plants:

the same as on a small balcony. In the Sun. Add thyme, rosemary, laurel, lavender, sage, saar, verbena, thyme, lemon that is carved into spiral cone balls and make a remarkable topiary.

-Choice of containers:

terracotta planters. Wood or plastic, possibly with water supply. For a courtyard, the same or terracotta (swear that they resist frost).

A Massive of herbs

Basic precautions:

As herbs have a culinary function. The garden should be close to the kitchen and can be reached on dry feet by elevated walkways.
-Choice of plants:  see above.

-Material Needed:

gravel, bricks, slabs for aisles

Three Simple Garden Plans

• The PLATE

Mixed band:

Along with a wall, a hedge, it benefits from the sun and mixes aromatic plants, perennials, and annuals by varying the décor each year.

• The garden in Checkerboard:

The garden is cut into regular figures (squares of 40 on 40 centimeters, for example) some of which are planted with aromatic plants and other turf covered with a covering to provide access routes.

The Round Garden:

-Using a rope and a picket planted as a compass, we draw a circle, which is divided into eight equal parts. These lines of sharing for aisles, which join together to spare a free space in the center. Inside each part, we install different plants.

The Garden of Simple

The medieval garden or garden of simple, ambitious realization, alone constitutes a living environment, with its masses of aromatic and medicinal plants, lined with rows of dwarf Buis. This creation requires a large budget, free time (for maintenance) and passion.
Whatever plan that: under ReSound, think it arrange the smallest plants in front, so that all of the sun will project.

-Basic precautions:

Draw the garden, taking into account the orientation and providing an integrated sprinkler system. Border plants must withstand frequent watering. In the regular sizes that give its structure to this garden to maintain a satisfactory aesthetic in winter, it is better to choose plants with evergreen (e.g. dwarf Buis).

The four elements of the gardener: The Sun, the Wind, the Earth, the water

The sun where it is the orientation of the chosen place in relation to the points.

How to succeed at all times?

Best way to succeed a herb garden is to carefully examine what it is possible to do: first. Assess its needs, the time available and the budget available:

Choice of plants: see above.

-Water abundantly but not too often superficial waterings make plants more susceptible to drought as the roots come to fetch water too close to the surface.
-Enrich the soil in humus which like a sponge is filled with water and gradually restores it.

Excess water

In the garden, they are often clay, poorly drained, not conducive to the cultivation of aromatic plants, more comfortable in light soil and limestone. There are several ways to address this:
-Make a good supply of light soil of compost, bone powder or dried blood possibly a little horticultural lime.
-At the time of planting, dig a hole deeper than necessary, and carpet it with gravel shards of pots before putting back soil and fertilizer.
-For more serious moisture problems, drain or create a raised plants in the garden.

-Water Restrictions

-Select the plants that are less water-hungry-do not let the bare ground plant the herbs close enough to each other and cover the other surfaces with pine bark from the dried grass clippings, as a floor exposed to the full sun will dehydrate RAPI Amendment.
Water early in the morning or late afternoon so that the water does not evaporate too quickly and the plants have time to absorb it.
-Water abundantly but not too often superficial waterings make plants more susceptible to drought as the roots come to fetch water too close to the surface.
-Enrich the soil in humus which, like a sponge, is filled with water and gradually restores it.

If the plants are in pots

-Arrange them in a place a little sheltered from the sun at the hottest times of the day, especially if they are exposed to the south.
-Arrange the pots in groups if possible in large sub-pots filled with gravel and water, in order to create a zone of freshness! Through the engraving, the plants will be raised and the roots will not macéreront in a water).
-Do not make fertilizer 15 days before an extended start, because growing the plants increase their needs.
-Use organic fertilizers and if possible add a little compost or undergrowth humus to the surface and cover with bark or other light and airy material.
-Invest in a can automatic sprinkler device (with a hose connecting to a water inlet and clock adjustable in the garden).

How do I know the Ph level of a soil?

For a small price. We find rolls of reactive paper in the pharmacy the late-run offer analytical kits containing products to be deposited on earth samples or a little more sophisticated, parameters the results obtained give an indication Approximate that laboratories specialized in soil analysis can refine.

If one knows to observe the wild flora it is also possible to deduce with astonishing precision the nature of the soil its excesses its deficiencies.

Can the Ph be corrected?

Bringing an acidic soil to neutrality is conceivable however an old peasant proverb says that your lime enriches the father.

So for impoverishes the son as a warning to underline that this intervention is not so favorable in the long term since one interferes In the microbial life cycles of the soil and its exchanges.
The remedy is to lime: i.e. to make a contribution of limestone elements (lime extinguished chalk. Maerl crushed limestone to raise the Ph around of 7.

Count that 4 to 5 kilos of product per 100 m2 per year buried in the soil by swim, raise the Ph of one degree or and the objective is reached consolidate the result with a maintenance dose of one kilo of limestone per m2 and per year.

If, however, one wishes to acidify a soil too calcareous, the company is riskier the smartest solution is to make compost intakes in small quantities in the spring.

Fall because by turning into humus, it brings the Ph back to the Neutrality.

Is there a simpler solution?

Rather than changing the Ph, it is possible to consider other solutions.
-Create a very large planter by delimiting a massif, which is raised with the help of a wall for example: And that one fills from a thickness of 60 cm to 1 m of balanced garden soil (Ph around 7 or even 7.5).
Run-off water, which tends to bring the soil back to its original Ph, has a few annual sprinklings with water in which you have diluted the horticultural lime.
-Create a garden of pots in a reserved space there are different containers with selected plants.
The advantage of the garden of pots is that it is modular autonomous in relation to the medium in which it is implanted. The downside is that it requires more attentions watering and adding more frequent fertilizer.
-Choice 1 imitation of plants
-Regular Maintenance size

The Hand turn

For the plants to remain healthy and vigorous, some gestures are advisable and others are to be avoided. Here are some tips:

Size

-Do not hesitate to prune the plants often (cut the ends of the stems) to prevent too much development of the twigs.

Watering

-Avoid stressing them with irregular watering: weakened they defend themselves less well against attacks of pests viruses and bacteria.
-Do not constantly leave water in the saucers under the pots.

-Pests

-Examine the foliage regularly to prevent any attack of pests. If, despite proper fertilization and watering, the plant appears to be stunted without any parasites appearing on the leaf system, be sure to check if the roots are not being attacked.

-Fertilizer

-Make fertilizer contributions in small quantities but regularly in the ground. Put fertilizer once in the spring, once in the summer in pots.

Once a month or every two months (depending on the volume of the pot).
-Attention too much fertilizer night under the action of an excess of nitrogen, the plant cells are filled with sap.

Their walls are thinning where some unfortunate consequences the rods lose their rigidity and pale the walls of the cells too thin, are Perforated without difficulty by pests (aphids. Mites) attracted by this glut of sap.

These wounds, in turn, open the door to all kinds of viral, fungal or bacterial attacks.
-Prefer organic fertilizers (roasted horn. Dried blood) to chemical fertilizers the latter the earth and make it arid.
