If you own a piece of land make it nice and green. Here I provide some of the best gardening ideas. You can consider a few things to make it greener. The plants require attention and care. The soil in pots and raised beds should be replenished from time to time. Saplings should be kept under shade. Flowering plants or vegetables require fertilizers or pesticides, try to avoid them and go green instead. Use organic fertilizers instead of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Composts can be done at your own home.
Vermiculture is the best way to get compost free of cost. Create a small bed or use a bucket to place the earth worms. Develop a pit in the corner of your garden and place some dry leaves at the base with some manure and place the earthworms in it. The earthworms consume anything from egg shells to torn bits of paper. Put all the daily kitchen waste into the pit or bucket and see them converted into a soil like particles. The compost is called vermi-compost. This can be collected and sprinkled around the plants. The worms leave nothing, it is converted into dark soil like particles, and this has all the ingredients required for the healthy growth of a plant. The plants develop healthier; The wash away water can be sprayed on the plants. This acts as a harmless pesticide.
Pruning and cutting plants and trees
The plants, shrubs and trees are pruned as needed. There are certain precautions to be taken while pruning. The best thing is to remove the diseased or dead stems by cutting them off. The diseased stem can cause other plants to catch an infection or weaken the plant. Some hedges of box wood are pruned to shape and create fencing or it acts like a compound wall. Flowering bushes in spring are pruned after their blooming is over. The summer blooming trees or shrubs are pruned after their blooms. Roses are cut to reshape them or cut down the damaged stems. Trees with needle–leaf are pruned before they start growing new leaves. They can be pruned in midwinter and are cut at leaves not back into the bark.
Water the plants at proper intervals.
Plants have many categories, annual, herbs, vines, vegetables, bulbs, houseplants, fruits and water plants. Every category needs special care for good growth. Always water the plants early morning and after sunset. Do not over water the plants, they tend to turn yellow due to over watering. Mulch needs to be added to the soil to keep low evaporation of water and erosion of soil. The rain water may drain away all the nutrients. Keep out the pests in an organic way. Sun exposure to your plants has to be just right. You keep wondering why the plants do not thrive. Selection of plants as per the sun exposure in your garden affects proper thriving of plants.
Vines for greener look
Certain vines and climbers are fast growing. They need little attention and grow rapidly. This can improve the shade and appearance of your garden. Some fast growing vines are morning glory, clematis, wisteria, sweat pea and many more. They need some bamboo sticks erected to support, or netting for the vine to climb. These tend to cover your house and fences to beautify them. Vines are full of leaves and blossoms, beautifying the area around. These require partial shade or full sun depending on the variety you have planted. They also need to be pruned for overgrowth from time to time. Vines and flowers always attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Make your garden like a green valley with lovely flowering vines. Wisteria is among the sweet smelling vines.
