Gardening with The Sun and The Wind

The Sun and The Wind

You can control many planting conditions.
You can add water with a hose if it does not rain. But
you can’t turn the sun on if your plants need extra
light or heat

This just means that you must take normal
sun and prevailing wind conditions into consideration
when you plan and when you plant. Use shady lawn mixtures
where grass must grow in partial shade. Plant sun-loving
flowers in your sunniest border spots. Plant vegetables
only where the plants are assured an average of six
hours of sun daily during the growing season. Mild winds
help dry off plants wet from rain or dew and in that
way help you control fungus diseases in gardens. Strong
winds break off tall plants . . . yes, even trees, particularly
the fast growing kinds. Some measure of wind control
in the garden is possible through the planting of windbreaks-tight,
tall-growing hedges or even trees. just make up your
mind to work with nature by paying a little attention
to the plants’ preferences
