    Some gardening tips??


    1) Plants:
    * Plants are naturally drawn towards sunlight making their leaves and stems bend over. Turn plants a quarter of a turn every few days.
    2) Temperature:
    * Plants that are grown in temperatures lower than those recommended for them suffer. Look for leaves around the outside – they would be the first to suffer.
    * A combination of high temperature, low humidity and dry compost causes plants to wilt rapidly and foliage to shrivel.
    * Falling leaves indicates rapidly changing temperature especially if compost is too dry or too wet.
    3) Watering:
    * Water is vital for plants growth. Plants absorb water through their roots and release it into the atmosphere through their leaves.
    * Tapping a side of a clay pot is one way to judge if compost inside is dry. A ringing note indicates that it needs water and a dull note indicates that no water is needed.
    * Wilting of plant indicates too much and too little water. Plants seldom recover when water is not given. Healthy leaves and stem indicates sufficient water.
    * To save an excessively watered plant, remove the soil ball from pot, keeping the plant inside, use an absorbent kitchen towel to soak up excess water, leave the soil ball until it dries a bit and pot up the plant into fresh compost and a clean pot.
    * Lightly misting leaves with clean water aids plant recovery. Do not mist plants with hairy and soft leaves as it leaves unsightly marks.
    * Dry and brittle leaf edges, brown edges on yellow and wilting leaves, old leaves falling of, flowers that fade quickly etc indicate that compost is too dry.

    Thanks for reading

    Garden ornaments can add a great value to your gardens. Garden ornaments appear in different shapes, colors and material. You can decorate your garden to serve the purpose of relaxation and for better family time. Garden ornaments add resonance to the garden. Usually the ornaments for a garden are made with materials like wood, resin, and metal, concrete, stone. When designing gardens, plants are thoughtfully chosen to provide necessary color, shape and form. Thanks.
