How Green Is Your Garden? Making Your Own Luck

Few people grow lucky four leaf clovers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your own luck with your garden.  With a little planning and preparation, you can make your garden look incredibly green and beautiful.  Others may think you’re incredibly lucky, but you’ll know that it was all skill and knowledge.

Know when to plan: some flowers prosper when planted while the ground is still a little chilly.  Others need to be planted in the spring so they can take advantage of all that great spring rain.  Knowing when to plant your flowers can make a huge difference in how your garden looks.

Know how to take care of each and every plant.  If you know which plants and flowers need direct sunlight and which ones don’t, you can arrange your flowerbeds so that all of your flowers are getting exactly what they need.  Also pay attention to how much water each type of plant needs and, if possible, group like plants together.  It makes it easier to water them.

Cut off the deadheads and dead leaves periodically.  Ideally, you’ll do this about once a week.  Just getting rid of the dead foliage will keep your garden looking nice.

Just knowing a bit about the various plants you have in your garden will allow you to make it look much greener and prettier than you might expect.  You don’t need good luck to have a beautiful garden—just a bit of knowledge.
