For me, planting is an art. I have been planting trees for over 40 years, and I still have a lot to learn. I am not an experienced gardener, but I want to share with you some of the things I do in my garden.
First, let’s start with the most important thing, and that is full sun. You don’t want a lot of shade, but you do want the maximum amount of sunlight possible. If the ground is very dry, you can turn the soil to the sunny side. Or, you can try planting your trees in containers. I don’t think that it will help the plants at all.
Next, the next step is to determine the size of the area where you will be planting. Once you have this in mind, you will be better able to design the planter. Do you have enough room for your trees? Will you be putting them in containers? Also, when you get your planter, do you know what kind of soil you need?
Now for the planting… That’s a three-word answer…time. First, determine the size of the area you are going to plant, and then fill in the area with soil. This area should be about six inches deep. The best time to plant is in the spring.
If you aren’t sure about how deep the soil needs to be, test it. If the area is full of weeds, it will need more than a couple of inches of mulch. It can take several years for your trees to grow tall enough to need any mulch.
Planting tree seedlings is another issue. When it comes to planting them, you have many options. You can take some plants out and cut the roots, leaving them in one hole. Or, you can bury the whole planting in the ground, no digging required. You will want to make sure the planting fits the area you are planting in.
If you have small children, don’t plant your trees too close together. They could accidentally hurt each other. Use some tape to keep the tree limbs from getting tangled, and make sure the soil is very loose.
No matter what you do, there will be times when you will need to buy some tools, like saws, such things. You want to invest in a good pair of gloves, and protect your hands by using plant protection (like gloves) while you are in the garden.
Another thing you need to remember is to weed your garden. You can use your gardening hose, or water until the leaves fall off the trees. Make sure that all of the plants you put in the ground will thrive without any fertilizer. If you plant in poor soil, there is no reason to plant anything.
One last thing I will add is that you will need to test the soil before you plant it. A good rule of thumb is to test it at least a month before planting. Once you plant the seeds, it may be necessary to test it every two weeks for the first few months.
I hope this article will help you in your quest for the perfect planting and harvest success. Weeding, mulching, and watering are important factors in growing a beautiful garden. Don’t forget that the best way to improve your landscape is to plant trees!
