Learning about gardening is a long process. You will become skilled if you invest enough time and efforts. Since you have discovered this tip-filled article, hopefully, you will gain enough information to refine your gardening methods, thereby, becoming a better gardener.
Do not improperly lay your new sod. Before laying the sod, have your soil prepared. Do some weeding if necessary, then break the soil until it is no longer packed. Gently compact the soil until it is flattened. Make sure the soil is moist all the way through. Then lay the sod in staggered rows so the joints are offset. Make sure the sod is firmly placed to ensure a surface that is sufficiently flat and even. Also, make sure to use soil to fill the areas where there are gaps in the sod. Water the sod for two weeks and then you can safely walk on it as it will have had time to properly root.
Consider starting your plants in pots and then planting the seedlings in your garden. Doing this will increase the survival rate of all your outdoor plants. It also permits you to tighten the time between plantings. When you take out the prior set of adult plants, your seedlings will then be prepared to go in.
Turn the handles of tools you have on hand into rulers to make measurements in your garden. Tools with long handles, such as rakes, hoes, and shovels can be converted into handy measuring sticks. Lay the handles onto the floor and place a measuring tape beside them. Mark your distances with a permanent marker. When the need arises to measure something while in your garden, the measuring tool you need will literally be “on hand,” sketched into the handles of your tools.
Vegetables in a garden need to have at least six hours of sun every day in order to thrive. Proper sunlight is a prerequisite for proper growth. Some flowers also have the same needs.
Try and maintain daily aerated and dried plants. Moisture on your plants is a sure way to attract parasites and disease. Fungi are parasites that are common in the plant world. Fungi can be controlled with fungicide sprays, but it is important to treat your area with the spray, before you see any problems.
