It may be helpful to let your plants begin their life in a pot and to transfer them to your garden when they’re seedlings. They are more likely to survive the transition to adulthood with this method. Seeds can’t always thrive in gardens, and are often eaten by birds. When you remove your mature plants, the next batch of seedlings should be ready.
Do not spend your money on chemicals to fight mildew. Put a little baking soda and some dish soap in water. Spray this onto your plants about once per week or until it subsides. This method is not going to cause any damages to your plants and the mildew will go away slowly.
Cover fences and walls with climbing plants. Many climbers can cover the wall or fence in as little as one growing season. They may grow up through some existing shrubs and trees, and can even be worked to grow around an arbor. Some types of climbers support themselves naturally through twining stems or tendrils, but others will have to be attached to something. A few good choices are climbing roses, wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle and clematis.
Don’t forget to use a good fertilizer in your garden. Manure is a great garden additive, but it is important that you choose a manure that has been composted commercially so that there is less of a risk of pathogens. There are a lot of different ways to fertilize plants; make sure you actually take the time to do it.
