Gardening A Pastime Continued For Centuries
2008-06-09 04:50:00
Plants were here long before people or animals were. While earliest man supplemented his staple diet of animal meat with gathered nuts and berries, people of later ages learned to cultivate crops to feed more people more reliably, leading to the more diverse diet we enjoy today. Because man’s new knowledge of plant propagation freed a great deal of time he had previously used for survival, he began to find many more uses for plants. One of those uses, gardening, filled the need both for decoration and recreation. A prime example of this pursuit is seen in one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Gardening as a pastime continued throughout the centuries. Asian cultures spent hundreds of years developing plant-based cures for diseases. Plants and herbs formed the entire basis for Chinese medicine. In addition to utilizing plants for their curative properties, Asian cultures revered them for their beauty, as well. Both peonies and maples, found...

The Benefits of Solar Greenhouses
2008-06-09 04:44:00
Many individuals are starting to recognize the benefits of solar greenhouses. A greenhouse is a structure that is composed of either a plastic type material or glass. Generally, the sides of this structure implement the use of the same type of material. A standard greenhouse will pull in the sunlight so that the plants may be kept warm. A solar greenhouse is a bit different in that it actually pulls in the sunlight and the heat to keep growing conditions at a regulative temperature - even when the sun is not shining, but when the sky is cloudy and overcast. These agriculture structures are designed to grow plants all year long. Here, you will learn the various benefits associated with greenhouses that are considered to be "solar". As you explore the solar greenhouses, you will notice that there are some distinct characteristics that make them stand apart. First, the solar type of greenhouse is insulated heavily to ensure that all of the heat that enters the structure is maintained ...

Why Drip irrigation Is The Best Way Of Watering Your Garden Plants
2008-06-08 12:13:00
While automatic sprinkler systems are the most effective way of watering a lawn, drip irrigation, some drawbacks notwithstanding, is the preferred method for the rest of the garden plants. The essential difference between the two is that sprinklers throw water indiscriminately over the area they cover, as opposed to drippers that emit water in designated spots. Judging by the fact that sprinklers are still widely used for watering flowerbeds, trees and shrubs, it seems that the advantages of drip irrigation are not sufficiently clear to many gardeners. Before dealing with these, let’s outline first the disadvantages involved with drippers. *Installing a drip irrigation system is more expensive than a sprinkler system in terms of materials and labor. Furthermore, the life span of the dripper lines is limited to about 10 - 15 years - sometimes a lot less if periodic flushing is not carried out. While it’s necessary to replace the actual sprinkler heads now and again, the undergrou...

Plants For Landscaping - Three Important Considerations For A Great Design
2008-06-08 04:54:00
Where does one begin when selecting plants for landscaping? There are a few main factors that should be considered to not only attain a beautiful planting design, but also one that has plant material that will flourish over time. Here are some important things to consider: Sun and Shade Conditions I list this first, because a plant must be located in an area where it receives the required amount of sun or shade. If not, at the least it won't perform well and at the worst, it won't survive at all. We have all seen plants that look dried out and even burnt as well as those that are spindly looking and weak. When a plant's requirement states that it needs sun, typically that means four hours or more. If a plant is a shade lover, then it should get no more than four hours of shade. The amount of hours of sun or shade does not have to be continuous; it can be filtered throughout the day. Plant Sizes Understand and know how tall and wide a landscape plant will get. That lovely plant th...

The Thorny Side Of Things- Removing Thorns From Roses Properly
2008-06-07 05:41:00
Who has not heard the saying: Every rose has its thorns? To many people the thorn on a rose has symbolism, whether it is spiritual or otherwise. The thorn seems to state that even the most beautiful things in life have a little bad to them. You could even say that the thorn is there to say "hey, you got to take the bad with the good." No matter how you think of it there is some kind of meaning to it for most people. In Roman mythology it is said that the thorns are there because Cupid was stung by a bee and started shooting arrows every where. Some arrows hit roses and because of the sting in the arrows the thorns took root and have been there ever since. Whether this is true or we will never know but if you are having trouble with thorns you should not be in despair. All you need is a little care and patience and you can remove these pesky daggers safely for a smooth stem.

How To Properly Water Your Lawn
2008-06-07 05:40:00
Lush green lawns are simply gorgeous-but it can take plenty of work to achieve that stunning emerald look. Water ing your lawn correctly is absolutely vital to keeping your lawn healthy and green in any climate. Proper watering of your lawn can even help preserve water, as you'll be using it more efficiently, with less waste. When and How to Water You don't necessarily need to start watering your lawn as soon as the first few warm summer days appear. You'll actually achieve a healthier lawn, with a more extensive and deep root system, if you hold off watering until your lawn begins to enter a mild state of drought. When your lawn begins to enter this state, the grass will turn a darker shade of green, and footprints made when you walk across the lawn will remain imprinted, instead of the blades quickly bouncing back up. If you're able to, watering your lawn early in the day is best. Midday watering is inefficient and may be detrimental to your lawn, as moisture will evaporate qui...
Growing Indoors: How to Help House Plants Thrive
2008-06-06 03:49:00
If you decide to take care of plants inside the comforts of your own home, you have to be very particular about its needs. House plants require more attention than regular plants, as these plants are not exposed to the direct sunlight and may not be getting the necessary nutrition from its environment. Here are the things you have to always check if and when you decide to put plants inside your home: 1. Plants need light. In the absence of 12 hours worth of sunlight, adequate lighting should be somewhat sufficient. Plants that are always in a dark environment are not likely to grow as lavishly as you hoped it would be. The stronger the light is, the healthier their leaves will seem be. You have to put your plants outside, in the balcony or the patio, whenever you can. And in times that they have to be kept inside the house, make sure that the room it is in is well lit and ventilated. 2. Temperature Generally speaking, plants thrive in hot environments.

What Do Yellow Roses Represent?
2008-06-06 03:46:00
What do yellow roses represent is a question asked by people interested in yellow roses and before purchasing these beautiful roses. Yellow roses were found growing in the Middle East around the 18th century. Wild roses from Afghanistan and Southwest Asia bloomed in pale yellow and a deep sulfur color. They were immediately renounced and grew quickly in popularity. The yellow rose at that time had no fragrant and although extremely beautiful this was a drawback. Also about this time techniques were being introduced in the field of rose cross-breeding and hybridization. As these techniques evolved they were able to add a pleasant aroma to the yellow rose. In the beginning the yellow rose was associated two ways. The first was a negative connotation as a symbol of jealously and dying love. The positive symbolism was associated more with the color. The color yellow is related to the sun. The sun is known as a source of light and warmth an integral to life on Earth. As time passed the y...

Five Things you can do to get your Lawn Ready for Summer
2008-06-05 12:12:00
In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, or so Alfred, Lord Tennyson once wrote. For some of us, our thoughts tend to turn to more mundane issues, such as the color of our lawns. Getting a gorgeous green lawn requires a bit of work, and the owners of the best lawns know that work starts well before summer hits. Raking and Thatch Removal Raking and thatch removal are probably the first couple of things you'll do in the spring. In fact, this actually starts in the fall, because ideally you'd have raked your lawn then as well. Raking isn't just about removing leaves and surface mess from your lawn-it's also one of the best ways to control thatch (the build-up of lawn clippings and other solid waste that collects on top of the soil). For this reason, raking thoroughly and deeply is very important both in the fall and the spring, to help get your lawn ready for summer growth. In general, a thatch of half an inch or more will need raking. If the thatch o...

5 Things To Remember When Moving To A New Home
2008-06-05 05:33:00
Even in the best cases, moving yourself, your family, and everyone’s possessions into a new home can be a hectic process. Organizing the items and compiling lists of where everything is and what needs to be done can go a long way towards ensuring that the moving process will go smoothly, but there are several items that many families forget to take into consideration when moving to a new home. Here are the most commonly forgotten items in the moving process for most families in America. 1. Know what your new address will be before you move. Many individuals will begin to cancel old services and enroll in new services before moving to the new home and will need the new home’s address so that service providers will know what home requires the services. Having to look for the address during each conversation will become very frustrating very quickly, so it is best to commit the new address to memory as soon as possible. 2.

Tips for creating your first organic garden.
2008-06-05 05:31:00
Creating your first organic garden can be a little work, but it is well worth it! Not only do you benefit from the better tasting fruits and veggies you can grow, but you get exercise too. Growing a garden with children around can be a wonderful family experience. Of course, there are a few things you should think of before you start. First, your garden needs to be in a spot that gets at least 2/3 of a day sun. The more sun you can provide it the better. Check to make sure your spot is close to water, since you don't want to be lugging a watering can to it all the time. A slight slope in your site will help with drainage of excess water. Make sure to check closely that you have removed any grass or weeds before you start to plant and you will be one step ahead of them growing back. Next, your site needs to be fed so it can in turn feed your plants. Buying or creating organic compost is the best way to do this. Dry leaves, grass clippings, kitchen scraps (such as coffee grounds, ...

Let It Rot: Five Guidelines For Composting
2008-06-04 05:25:00
Compost is what is left over when organic matter decomposes. Organic matter can be things like vegetable scraps, leaves, mown grass and any other garden waste. This material will decompose without any assistance at all, though you can help it along and enjoy the benefits of compost faster if you wish. Because it doesn't contain a high level of essential nutrients, compost is not considered an actual fertilizer. Instead, it is treated as a soil conditioner or amendment. Compost does supply many good things to the soil. It attracts beneficial creatures like earthworms and it improves the soil composition. Cold composting is basically just making a pile and letting it sit in the bin. This takes longer than hot composting. Hot composting is when you take a shovel and turn your pile every few days to supply more oxygen to the microorganisms in your compost pile. Location First, decide where you will put your compost pile. Check for city ordinances that may regulate where you can put a c...

How to Plan a Lawn Maintenance Schedule
2008-06-03 12:11:00
One of the reasons people don't bother to maintain their lawn (or have difficulty doing so) is that they believe there's too much work involved. They might simply have a problem with figuring out how often to do each of the necessary tasks, when to do them, and when not to do them. Like most lawn care issues, solving this problem is easy, once you know how: simply create a schedule takes all the guess-work out of maintaining the lawn, and allows you to follow a set routine that tells you exactly what to do and when to do it. How to Start The first step in creating a lawn maintenance schedule is writing down every lawn care task that you will need to do in a single year. That includes frequent tasks such as watering and mowing, semi-frequent tasks such as fertilizing, and those you'll only do once or twice a year, such as de-thatching and aerating. Once you've got your list, categorize them according to how often they need to be done. For example, create different categories for ...

The Rose Garden's Ten Most Wanted List
2008-06-03 05:33:00
The following insects have made it to the Rose Garden's Ten Most Wanted list. Read carefully so you can identify them and eradicate them from your garden. 1. Aphids Aphids top this list because they are the most frequent rose pest. They love to nestle into the buds and shoots of rose bushes. While low to moderate levels of aphids will not do much harm to your roses, you need to keep an eye on how they spread. High numbers of aphids will produce a lot of honeydew. This substance encourages mold growth and will eventually cause your rose leaves to blacken. You may notice that your flowers shrink in size and the buds may even be killed. Lady beetles and syrphid flies are the natural enemies to aphids and will keep the population under control. You can also spray the plant with water or insecticidal soap. Aphids are usually a problem during spring and early summer. Unless you have a really heavy infestation, it is uncommon to have to use insecticides against them. 2. Spider Mites If yo...

Managing Chinch Bugs in Your Lawn
2008-05-30 17:31:00
All lawns go through many different stages with the changing seasons. The month of May for your lawns is a time to reflect on the spring activity that you have accomplished in prior months, such as putting in a new turf or planting new plants or flowers, which should now be in bloom.

I live in an area where chillies do not grow very well outdoors so I grow them in a greenhouse but what I am going to talk about here can be used when growing outdoors. The first thing to think about is seed. You can walk into a supermarket, buy a chilli and use the seeds from the chilli you cook with. Not after you have cooked them though. It is better to buy from a specialist seed company though as these seeds will be from chillies which have been specially grown for their seeds. You can buy these from supermarkets, DIY stores or major seed supply companies. However, I like to buy my chilli seeds from specialist chilli growers. They are easy enough to find now that the internet has been developed but my Grandfather never had the internet yet he found a specialist company many years ago ...
