Easy to set up Hobby Greenhouses

May 12, 2009

Having a greenhouse at home is an increasingly common way to nurture plants and to protect them from harsh weather. In many climates, it’s a necessary part of the year’s gardening in order to have a lush garden of flowers. In just about any climate, there are a number of reasons why having your own, small greenhouse is a practical way to give your gardening projects a boost.

In some climates, having a garden is made difficult by late frosts and early snows. Starting a few seedlings indoors can make it easier to get a spring garden started when it gets warm enough outdoors, but it can prove difficult to start a whole garden that way. A greenhouse can supply seedlings with all the sunlight they need while protecting them from the cold weather. With some simple shelving or bakers racks, even a very small greenhouse can be used to start hundreds of seedlings to fill a flower garden. They can then be transplanted outdoors when the conditions are right. Read more

How To Rototill Your Flower Garden This Spring

April 28, 2009

Many gardeners start off their spring flower beds by tilling the soil. This is not necessary for all gardens, but there are times that tilling is necessary for successful gardening. Tilling should be done only when the soil is relatively dry and is warm. If the ground is still frosty, the tilling should wait until the last of the frost is gone. The soil should be at least 60 degrees when it is tilled. If the soil is too wet, it will not be broken up well by the tiller, and you could even damage the machinery. To test whether or not the soil is too wet, pick some up and try to make a ball with it. If you can make a mud ball, the area is too wet for tilling. If the soil falls apart, it is dry enough for the tiller. Read more

Save Flower Seeds For Next Year.

A great way to get free flower seeds for next year is to pick seeds from your own flowers in the fall. After the flower blooms and dies back the seeds will form in the middle of the flower. When the seed pod is tried out but before it drops the seeds on the ground you should cut the stem of the flower and shake the seeds into a bag or on a newspaper. If they don’t come off easily you can rub the pods between your hands to get them to open up. Read more
