Garden Woes? Use This Helpful Information To Improve It!

lawnLawn watering systems are a pretty simplistic system. In general the biggest problem homeowner’s have is fixing a broken sprinkler, or finding a pipe-breach underneath their lawn.

Tulips can be a gorgeous outer border for your garden. These beautiful flowers are the first to bloom in the spring. There are many vibrant colors of tulips and so, they can easily add beauty to your garden. Tulips will bloom while some of your other flowers are still waiting to pop out. This means you will have a more colorful garden, for a longer period of time.

Grow shade-loving annuals. Most annuals (and tender perennials) thrive in full sun, but some prefer a little shade. They do well on the north side of a house, or under the canopy of trees and shrubs. Remember to provide good soil and plenty of moisture. For constant bloom in a shady area, plant impatiens, balsam, clarkia and lobelia. Nicotiana is particularly striking, growing 5 feet tall, and producing beautiful tubular white flowers with a glorious fragrance.

Prune climbing roses after blooming. The first year you plant a climbing rose it won’t require any pruning – simply encourage it to grow. A rambling rose or large-flowered climber probably won’t bloom until the second summer. In early spring, prune out any dead branches, and generally tidy up the plant. After blooming, remove the oldest canes that are showing no signs of new growth. Don’t leave this too late, as climbing roses produce strong new growth immediately after flowering, and you may end up pruning the new canes which are responsible for producing flowers the following year.
