Spring is in the air! You can feel the fuzzy and warm feeling of spring inside you! In your mind you are already picturing the blooming garden waiting for you. But if you do own a garden, you now that achieving that blooming garden is not as easy as it sounds, it actually takes some effort and lots of love.
First of all
You have to understand how a plant works. Plant receive all the nutrients that they need through their roots. The roots get that from the soil around them. So if you want a healthy plant, you’ll need a healthy soil. Organic matter can be provided by compost or manure and it will encourages bacterial activity that promotes soil fertility. Also, you can get extra help from fertilizers. Phosphorus promotes flower buds, so look for a liquid fertilizer that has a higher concentration of phosphorus than nitrogen. Be careful when choosing fertilizers, in excess they can damage the plant and soil, look for half strength liquid fertilizer with nature based components. Another element that can affect the soil health is the water. Keep in mind that too much water can drown the plant and stop the growing process. On the other hand, the lack of water can dry the plant, prompting the drop of flower buds. The best you can do is moderate watering during spring time.
If you have indoor plants, you have to provide extra care. It’s best to transplant the plant to a bigger pot, so the roots can have room to grow healthy and strong. Remember to apply compost or manure in the pot to ensure that the plant receives all the nutrients it needs. If some organic matter falls into your carpet during this process, don’t worry about it, a little carpet shampooer will easily remove it.
Whether you have indoor or outdoor plants, light its key to the development of them. Some plants love sunlight, while others prefer shade. Take some time and get to know what kind of plant you have. Give them just the right amount of light to ensure the best chances of blooming.
Lastly but most importantly, be patient. Take care of your plants and leave nature do the rest. Some studies show that even the fact to talking in a loving manner to the plant can encourage them to grow healthier. Love your plants, sit back and enjoy the sight a blooming garden.
