Help Your Garden Flourish this Year – Tips from a Custom Home Builder in Vancouver WA

DSC_3458You have probably already started the planning process for your summer garden, and there are many things that can help ensure it is successful this year. Depending on the plants you have chosen, there might be some requirements for extra care to make sure that they flourish, without harming the other plants in your garden.

The first thing to think about is whether or not you have aggressive plants in your garden. If you do, it might be important to restrict their reach to other plants. It is possible to prevent aggressive plants from taking over your garden by planting them in a plastic container. This will help ensure that these plants’ underground roots don’t crowd your entire garden. You can cut out the bottom of with a knife to allow the roots to grow directly down into the soil.

Another concern with buying potting plants is that they are often root-bound. This means that as these plants grow in the pot, the roots run out of room to grow, so they begin to form circles of roots inside the pot. This is a problem because these roots can prevent water and other essential nutrients from getting to the leaves and the rest of the plant. To solve this dilemma, you can gently guide the roots outward with you fingers.

These are just a few things you can do to ensure that your garden is everything you want it to be this year. Click here for more tips!
