Nature is beautiful and if taken care of very nicely, it gives a healing feeling to people. Green spaces have endless benefits that range from stopping erosion to cleaning the air and many other benefits. Patio gardens make use of unused space using creative ideas on how to come up with a relaxing space. The thought of sitting back after a long week in your backyard patio decorated with beautiful flowers is already relaxing to the mind. Good things don’t come easy, to get that exotic look on your garden, hours of hard work and tender care are spent on the land.
Water is important for the seedlings because rainfall may not be consistent. Too much of anything is dangerous, a lot of water in the soil can make the roots rot and the plant will wither and die. Drainage is important, this will be made possible by carving or drilling holes at the bottom of the pot to release excess water. These holes should be about the diameter of a nail to prevent soil from going to waste as it accompanies the water out. Watering should be done responsibly and carefully, this is a plant you are watering not an empty sink. A can is used to water them to minimize wastage of both time and water.
Because the roots are not in their original setting, that is the open-air soil, nutrition may become a challenge. Minerals like phosphate and nitrogen and many others help the plant to grow strong. The same way humans eat a balanced diet to stay away from diseases, plants also need the same care. Fertilizers and pest control sprays come in handy. If a plant is weak, opportunistic pests come in to finish it completely and the plant dies, leaving the owner at a loss for buying it and for the money used to take care of it.
Sunlight is needed for the leaves to make food. Lack of sunlight will lead to the leaves being discolored and the seedling will soon die. Placing the pot where it will receive adequate sunlight as the species planted inside requires is key to maintain its chances of survival. Again, placing species that have different needs together can make gardening confusing and hard when it comes to instructing a caregiver when you are away. It is good to place those with similar needs, for example, those that require a lot of sunshine together and not amongst those that prefer a bit of shade.
Gardening is a way to spend free time in a constructive manner. They say take care of the environment and it will take care of you too, that’s why it is called mother nature due to this effect. As a beginner, the Internet is a good place to start for you can look at a variety of seedlings that will save you the embarrassment of getting confused in the seedlings store. Children can be engaged in this outdoor activity because not is fun and they will be learning a thing or two that they can apply in their school lessons.
