  3. How To keep Your garden Safe During The Rainy Season

    How to keep your garden safe during the rainy season

     Heavy rains during the monsoon season can be the bane of garden lives. Frequent bashing due to heavy rain can destroy even the most resilient plants and drive all the hard work you put in to build that beautiful garden down in the drain. 

     I know, it all sounds familiar; in fact, many of us have experienced our beautiful garden getting ruined by rain in front of our eyes. Not anymore, here a few measures we all can take, and keep your plants alive over the drizzly season.

     
    Treat for waterlogging:

    Waterlogging is not only rampant on public roads in our country but also in most people's gardens. After heavy rainfall, spots occur where water remains in puddles and doesn't drain away. It clogs oxygen supply to the roots, and they stop growing and eventually die. 

    Understanding the symptoms:

    First and foremost, don't be deceived into watering your plant, in the rainy seasons, because of yellowing leaves, drooping stems, and dropping leaves. These are all classic signs of your plant suffocating to death due to a lack of oxygen, not reaching the roots.  

    Ironically, many people misread these signs of plants dying due to obstruction of oxygen supply to the roots as plants need watering. 

    How to keep plants safe:

    • Adding mulch is an effective strategy that once can adopt to keep the plants safe during the rainy season. By absorbing moisture, they facilitate the flow of oxygen to the roots and keep weeds under check. You can make mulch at home using organic material like hay, tree bark, or chippings. 
    • Use a garden fork to make holes in the soil; water gets lodged in the air pockets that obstructs the flow of air to the roots. You can ventilate the garden by making holes to release the waterlogged air pockets. The deeper you can spike, the better for your garden.
    • Lack of sunlight is another major factor that kills the plants and damages your garden. If you live in a region that remains cloudy for most of the year, consider investing in some artificial lighting system for your garden.
    • If you live in a thick clay soil region, consider using growing frames in your garden. As this type of soil is prone to waterlogging, you can fill the bed with good quality topsoil and compost to keep your plants safe. 

     

    Keep your plants against torrential downpours and the resulting waterlogging by following these simple steps.

  4. Common Mistakes To Avoid While Building Your Garden

    It doesn't matter if you spend years building your garden or just getting started to develop a space full of life right behind your window, you will always face challenges and stumble over little pitfalls. Some of these self-inflicted mishaps and some by the hands of Mother Nature are among the many beautiful things about gardening that facilitate lifelong learning, patience, and passion. 

     

    While building your garden, you will learn a lot by making mistakes, and its the part of the process. However, here are a few common mishaps that you can avoid:

     

    You have taken up more than you can handle: Are you one of those who have just taken up gardening and are already dreaming of green lunch space full of beautiful flowers and plants?                       

     

    We are sorry to break it to you; it seldom works out the way you imagine. Start by building one or two manageable garden raisin beds or strips to which you can devote enough time. Also, carefully pick plants that are resilient and do not require a lot of attention or care.

     

    Choose plants ideal for the climate conditions in your region: Many people are now buying plants online; thus, they often pick plants that are not ideal or could not survive in the climate conditions prevailing in their region. Conducting thorough research regarding the planting season and soil conditions before buying a plant will go a long way to build your dream garden

     

    Do not neglect the soil's health:  People often consider "smut" as "soil"; unfortunately, it is not the case. Usually, your garden beds do not contain all the nutrients and lack the right mix of drainage and moisture retention properties that plants need to thrive. Invest in compost and some mild slow-release natural fertilizers to provide the plants with the necessary nutrition that can help them grow. 

     

    Excess watering: Showering too much love may not be in their best interest. Watering too much is a common mistake that people who are just getting started with gardening make. Plants breathe through their tissues and roots. If the roots are wet for an extended period, plants are unable to breathe and suffocate. It also increases the probability of them getting rotten or catching a disease. 

     

    Overcrowding: Don't ignore the recommended spacing guidelines while planting. People often do not pay attention to the instructions provided with the plants and seeds, which leads to over-crowding; plants and are unable to get sufficient nutrients, water, airflow, and sunlight. It also leads to the spread of disease and pests. 

     

    We hope you could pick up a few pointers about how to start building the garden you always wanted. As always, feel free to shoot me questions!
