A garden is something that we all find fascinating. The kids love getting their hands dirty while they weed out the unwanted plants in the garden. Having a healthy and beautiful garden is one way to show that we care about our homes. To start digging and planting things to grow takes more than just space for things to grow. If we want a garden as colorful as the one that we have in our garden coloring pages, we should learn a few tips first.
1. Use Hardiness Zone Information
It’s a little-known fact that there are things that don’t grow in our garden that would otherwise grow in someone else’s one. According to the hardiness of plants, they can grow in different parts and the temperature can determine how they grow. When we look at our garden coloring pages we can see that there are lots of different plants that we get to color in. Plus, they come in different colors to make it all the more fun for us. However, when we know which plants are hardier than the rest, it should help us know which ones our garden can tolerate.
2. Know How to Prune Plants
Our garden coloring pages are full of beautiful plants and shrubs that have been pruned to perfection. It makes it easier for us to color in without making a mess of things. In reality, pruning our plants and shrubs is just as important. Knowing how to do this is crucial to having an eye-catching garden. It’s always important for us to know when to prune what we grow in our garden. For instance, some shrubs need to be pruned in autumn instead of fall or winter. This helps to avoid removing flower buds for spring.
3. Use Compost
When we apply compost manure, we should make sure that it’s been cured for nothing less than six months into the soil. If we use fresh manure, we risk burning our plants. Moreover, they won’t look as fresh as the ones in our garden coloring pages. The thing about fresh manure is that it’s too high in nitrogen. And it can contain harmful parasites and pathogens. We should avoid using any manure from our cats and dogs because it contains parasites that can be infectious to us.
4. Pay Attention to Light Requirements
When we think of the flowers in our garden, we should pay close attention to how much light they need to survive. If we’ve decided to grow vegetables as well, we should understand that they require more sunlight in comparison to our other plants. This is why when we have shade in our garden, growing cool season crops like cabbage and radish is a better option.
5. Weed Out the Garden
Looking at our garden coloring pages there are a number of things that we don’t have to deal with. Seeing weeds grow is one of them. There are specific approaches that we should consider when it comes to weeding out our garden. For instance, using our hands or a hoe is a better option compared to using any other tools. However, we should avoid any deep cultivating or hoeing. The fact is that doing this only brings problems. It will bring weeds to the surface that can easily germinate. It’s important to weed out our garden early in the year. This way, we won’t deal with weeds that have seeds that germinate all over the place.
