Autumn is a season of transaction between the summer heat and the winter cold. And it is good to perform some small precautions to repair plants, trees and flowers from the gradual drop in temperatures.
5 Tips for Your Garden in Autumn
First of all, remember that autumn does not mean setting aside the gardening equipment, on the contrary it is a very delicate season, on which the flowering in spring depends.
Here are 5 small tips for your garden to apply this season.
First of all, you need to identify the plants that could suffer most from the cold and protect them. If they are in the pot, just put them in the house or in a warm area and if, instead, they are planted, we recommend covering them with plastic sheets. Be careful! The sheets should be transparent because even in the coldest months the plants need light.
Bulbs is the Way
If you want to enjoy a flower garden in spring, this is the right time to plant bulbs. There is something for everyone: Narcissi, Snowdrop, Hyacinths, Tulips, Iris… Planting them is very simple: just dig a hole twice the height of the bulb, water them often and that’s it.
Autumn is also the time for cleaning, it is the season in which you have to worry about cleaning the garden from weeds, leaves, dry branches, diseased plants. Let’s open a parenthesis on the leaves: falling down, they create a slippery state and, when in contact with grass and shoots, they can rot and contribute to the diffusion of diseases. For this reason, the collection of the leaves is a very important operation, to be done regularly.
Do not Close the Tap: Water
Mistakenly, many in the autumn season “close the tap”. On the contrary – especially if the climate is dry – it is necessary to continue watering the plants, especially those in the pot.
