Alice's Greenhouse Tidbits
One way to enhance the appearance and productivity of your garden is to make sure
weeds are under control so as not to overtake it. They will compete with your plants for
water, nutrients and sunlight. Hoeing and hand weeding will eliminate weeds when
they are small and easily removed. Mulching works very well to prevent a lot of weeds from sprouting and it will also help to conserve moisture. Black plastic and landscape fabric are two other options as well. A few preventative measures early on will make a big difference in the results you get throughout the season.
If you do not have a lot of yard or garden space, or just do not have the time or energy to
devote to gardening, then the container garden is the way to go! You can arrange
several pots in locations close to the house, patio or deck with the plants of your choice and with minimal upkeep enjoy blooms, veggies or herbs all summer.
Remember, with any garden or containers, make sure you water your plants if there is
not sufficient rain for several days and do not forget to fertilize twice a month for optimal plant health and vigor.
Good luck and happy gardening!
