The initial clues of autumn are noticeable in our neighbourhood. Just about every time of year has its appeal, but the coming of autumn does mean saying farewell to many things which flourish only during spring and summer. Fortunately, during autumn and into the early days of winter, we can enjoy selected plants that don't require the warmth of the earlier seasons.
Falling leaves and flowers relinquishing their color bring about thoughts of necessary activities. Those are generally the first evidence of the autumn, so you need to prepare the garden for the cold season. The plants and the trees in the garden need help to survive until the spring. There a number of activities that must be done to prepare the garden.
Trees have to be made ready for the cold of wintertime by being tidied. This calls for getting rid of dead branches, and a pair of garden shears is often all that's required. The reason for this is to let sunlight to get to the healthy branches and sustain life. Even though it is thought you can produce natural fertilizer using dead leaves, this is not entirely true. Leaves might be afflicted with a disease which eventually will negatively impact the soil.
A high-potassium fertilizer is definitely something it's essential to feed the soil with. Refuge from winter cold is supplied by the shielding layer. Never lose the occasion to plant a few flowers that will look great in the spring. Old fertilizer layers should be removed and replaced with new ones. Primarily disease-free dead leaves, whenever you want to use them, may be spread evenly as a soil covering.
The arrival of October provides you with probably the most opportune time to plant evergreens. Try to get the soil geared up by watering it a day or so before you decide to plant. Once you have planted any bulbs you have to water them, but you should never overdo it. Take care to take into account the weather, since watering just before heavy rain will not only be a waste of time and water but also present a threat to your plants.
Autumn is also the time to turn the land. The optimal digging range is normally 15-20 centimeters. Before rotating the soil, all loose vegetation including leaves and fallen fruits must be taken out. Healthy leaves and fruit are perfect for enriching the soil, so only burn them when they are not healthy.
