Garden fix that makes beds for a nice garden
Now there are many garden fixes you can do to get your garden ready for a nice summer. Have you cleared the flowerbeds from the weeds or are you considering building new flowerbeds? If you want to get the discounts done quickly, it may be a good idea to hire a gardener to help you with that. If you want a framing of the flower bed with stones, maybe a stone setter is just what you need. It’s a good time to get ready in the garden now.
Garden fix that is suitable to do now
Below we give you a small garden guide on what you can do in the garden or on the balcony. Flowers, shrubs and vegetables – what do you want with you?
Rake and get the garden ready
Rake through the lawn, flower beds, kitchen and spice cultivation, under the hedge and under the raspberry bushes if you have one. Raking before you start planting and mowing the lawn is good for removing leaves, twigs and other weeds that may remain from last year. The leaves prevent the sun from reaching all the way and prevent the grass from getting the sunlight it needs to germinate and feel good.
Garden fix with perennials and shrubs
Now is a perfect time to plant many kinds of plants, not least shrubs and perennials. They get time to take root and thus better conditions to cope with the winter. This is especially important if you live in the northern parts of the country.
Perennials that are good to plant now are funkia, star cluster, love herb, reed sucker, alum root and low knight spurs. It is common to want to plant many different ones, but here we suggest choosing a few and instead choosing several varieties from that flower.
Are you thinking of putting a hedge around or on part of the plot? The thuja hedge is very good to have in such a way that it can withstand our winters without being damaged. Thuja is advantageously planted now in the spring or in the autumn. It is a fairly large project to build a thuja hedge, so here it can be nice to hire a gardener who can fix it without difficulty.
The time for the lawn is now
Hopefully the grass has now become so long that you can mow it. It should be more than 5 inches high when you cut it for the first time in the spring. Usually the lawn usually needs to be mowed 1-2 times a week during the spring but when the summer comes with warmer temperatures then the growth decreases and you do not have to mow as often.
At this time of year, the lawn has in most cases dried up if you do not live in the north where the snow has remained longer. To get a healthy, green and dense lawn, it is good to sprinkle with manure. The fertilization can advantageously be repeated 2-3 times a year. Now in the spring, the grass needs a lot of nitrogen and then Lawn Fertilizer Nature is recommended . In the autumn, Garden Fertilizer Maturation is recommended instead so that you give the lawn extra phosphorus and potassium.
Garden fix with crops for the kitchen
Salad in a pot
Picking your own salad directly from a pot is as good as putting it in the vegetable bed. Lettuce is easy to grow and grows quite quickly, which is fun when growing.
When the soil lasts at least 8+, then it’s time for planting. Place the potatoes with a row spacing of about half a meter, it must not be too dense because then the risk of leaf mold increases. Between each potato there should be 15-30 centimeters and plant the potatoes with a depth of 10-15 centimeters. When the tops have grown up about 15 centimeters, you put soil around the whole plant so that it becomes like a cup. In that hive, the potatoes will then grow.
If you do not have a garden but are eager to grow potatoes at home, then it is just as well to put the potatoes in a bucket or deep boxes. It is exciting to see the results later when they are ready and can be harvested after about 10-12 weeks. What a luxury to enjoy home-grown potatoes.
Tomato cultivation If you
want tomatoes in vegetable cultivation, we recommend buying tomato plants and sowing because it is a bit late now to sow seeds so that they have time to grow up and give tomatoes during the summer.
land If you like strawberries, it is high time to fix the strawberry land and put in new plants. Plant the plants where the sun shines the most and with a reasonable distance between the plants in a rich soil. Then you will succeed with the strawberries if we have the weather on our side with a lot of sun.
Summer flowers that fit in the balcony boxes
Plant nice summer flowers in balcony boxes, but remember to keep an eye on the temperature, if there is frost, the flowers must be covered.
Geranium, Gladiolus, Dahlia, Buttercup and Cress are examples of summer flowers that are perfect to put in the balcony box. So even you who do not have a garden can enjoy the beautiful flowers of summer on the balcony.
If you are looking for plants that can withstand colder nights, Cyclamen, Pansies, Ivy and Winterberries “skimmia” are good plants that because they can survive even when it is colder outside.
