Gardening Lessons From My Childhood

As a child from a family of six children, I learned the importance of working in the garden and the responsibility of taking care of my section in the garden. One of the most important lessons I took away from that learning experience was that if you just put your mind to the chores that are given to you, you will be finished with them before you know it. It gives you a real sense of accomplishment to know you have done your part and helped out the other members of your family.

Here the plants are typically cultivated in water solutions minus soil which ordinarily would have been responsible for capturing and absorbing minerals like potassium, nitrogen and the like.

Short Buying Guide for Pole Saws

For many years I’d been using the same old pruning stick and eventually decided to look for a better pole saw for myself. After doing a little research I’ve found out that now I can choose both manual saws and more powerful electric or gas pole trimmers for heavier pruning jobs and the variety of all kinds of tools are really amazing. To make the better purchase I think you first need to estimate the amount of work you have to cope with in your yard.

Greenhouse Technique In The Summer

Tender bedding plants and vegetables raised under glass need to be hardened off before planting in the harsher conditions outside. This should start about two weeks before you plan to plant out. Make sure the greenhouse does not over heat by providing adequate ventilation and shading. Damping down may be necessary in hot, sunny weather. Tie in new growth on tomatoes and cucumbers and pinch out side shoots. Plants that are in containers will need watering several times a day in warm weather in the greenhouse. Make your life easier by installing an automatic watering system. Feed all actively growing plants with a suitable liquid feed.
