Top Tips To Achieving A Healthy And Thriving Garden

Everyone loves to come home to a beautiful and peaceful garden where they can relax and indulge in nature. It’s rewarding to have a healthy garden that is well maintained and neat.

There is some work involved in building a beautiful garden.  It means getting your hands in the soil and spending some time.

Many homes in our neighborhood have challenges like shade, drainage or limited space.  When you come to our store we will help you match the right plant material for the space you have. We have been growing beautiful plants in Brooklyn for over 30 years and we like to be helpful.

It Begins with the Soil

3676270907 d659a448c9 Top Tips To Achieving A Healthy And Thriving Garden

The soil is the foundation that your flowers and plants will grow in and the richer it is the healthier they will be. The type of soil that you grow your plants is highly determined by the natural composition of the garden as well as the location you are in. A great garden starts with building the soil.  We have amendments that will allow you to build a rich soil for your plants.   Tell us what your soil is like and what you want to grow and we will help you be well prepared.

Caution should be practiced when applying fertilizer as too much of it can burn the roots, thus making it hard to absorb water. This will in turn make the plants highly susceptible to stress as a result of heat, cold and drought. Adding a layer of mulch around the plant will assist in keeping weeds away and retaining moisture.

Choose the Plants for Your Space

Different varieties of plants and shrubs have different needs.  Sometime the biggest gardening mistakes happen before you bring your plants home.  In Brooklyn we have to be thoughtful about how much space trees and shrubs will use.  We can show you how to use containers to grow, and match you with the right plant material for your growing space.

So, there should be sufficient spacing to ensure that there is airflow around the plants, thus reducing high relative humidity and allowing foliage to dry faster. You should trim out old, damaged or crowded stalks, or alternatively divide the plants to create some spacing. Pruning will also assist in maintaining a tidy growth and prevent any chance of crowding as the plants grow and spread.

Proper garden tools

Garden tools are crucial in order to maintain good growing conditions for the plants thus ensuring healthy plants. Be informed that defective tools can have a negative effect not only to the plants but also you could end up injuring yourself. You should ensure that the tools are well maintained and oiled annually to prevent rust as they will be exposed to water every now and then. All the tools should be cleaned after use and properly stored in perfect conditions always. Some common garden tools are rakes, hoes, spades and shears among other. It is important to ensure that you have all the necessary tools to maintain the garden and make your gardening experience more fulfilling.

At Kings County Nurseries, we have a range of gardening tools and will even advise you depending on what you are looking for. We will ensure that you have healthy plants in Brooklyn which will be the envy of the entire neighborhood.
