Planting Daffodils

Planting Daffodils

Planting daffodils is relatively easy to give because daffodils are very resilient flowers that are easy to grow. It is almost as easy as putting the daffodil bulbs in the ground and waiting for the growth. Almost, but not quite.

Gardening To Do List In Early Spring

Gardening To Do List In Early Spring – The clean-up is one of the central parts of your early spring garden preparation. Collect and dispose of any dead branches and other large debris, then rake and collect any fallen leaves around your property. The next step is pulling dead weeds, making sure to pull with them as much of the root as possible. Even seemingly dead weeds are often just dormant and remaining fragments of roots will often give rise to new weeds in the summer. If you don’t have a compost pile, collect all your debris in yard waste bags for disposal.

The soil is the base of your garden beds. If you don’t have good soil, you don’t have a good garden. Start your gardening off right with the best soil you can.

Organic Lawn Care

Organic Lawn Care – Being able to treat your lawn with the proper care to make it grow healthier, plush-looking and greener requires you to go a little further to get it done. This treatment has become popular because of the eco-friendly green movement, and despite the organic fertilizers acting a bit slow, it still has more benefits to it. Here are a few benefits from organic lawn care:

1. Root growth improvement. Through organic care, nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium are released, and the grass roots absorb them slowly and in small doses. That way, the roots will grow better and stronger.

Radermachera Plant

Radermachera Plant

Radermachera is a house plant of the eighties – it was introduced to Europe from Taiwan at the beginning of the decade, and its popularity as a specimen indoor tree has increased. It may be labelled simply as ‘foliage plant’, but you can’t mistake the large compound leaves bearing shiny, deeply-veined leaflets with long tapering points. Central heating is no problem because it tolerates dry air.

A small, evergreen shrub, it has long, bipinnate leaves with glossy, deeply veined leaflets that are about 2 in (5 cm) long. Young plants are compact with branching, woody stems. Fast-growing, this plant will quickly become leggy if not pruned back.
