Learn some tips that can help you grow a much better garden for you, your family, or your business. By using these tips, you will be able to better understand the basics so that you do not purchase unnecessary items, or plants that will not grow in your climate.

Your tool handles can easily be used as handy rulers. Handles of things such as rakes, hoes or shovels make excellent measuring instruments. Place the handles on the floor to measure the distance between them. Use a bright permanent marker and label the distances. When the need arises to measure something while in your garden, the measuring tool you need will literally be "on hand," sketched into the handles of your tools.

Brighten up your flower beds with annuals and biennials. You can use biennial and annual flowers to brighten the bed, and let you change how it looks. You can also use these flowers to fill gaps between shrubs or perennials. There are many flowers you can plant in these gaps. Try marigolds, petunias or sunflowers for a brighter garden.

While caring for your garden in the fall, you will want to keep a lookout for stinkbugs. They thrive on fruits, citrus, peppers and various beans. If left uncontrolled, they can cause substantial damage in your garden, so make plans for how to protect your plants from these pests.

Draw up a garden plan before you plant the first seed. Having a planting plan will help you correctly identify the young plants once they start to sprout. The plan will also help you keep track of your more diminutive plants and smaller groups that could otherwise become lost among a sea of larger plantings.

Try to ensure your plants are dry and have enough air, daily! Parasites are attracted to the moisture on plants. Fungi are a very common and irritating pest in the world of horticulture. There are many effective fungicide products that will prevent fungi growth and clear up any existing problems as well.

In order to start the best garden possible, remember that you should always start with the seeds and not pre-purchased plants. This is a more sustainable way to start a garden. Since plastics that are in nurseries aren't recycled very often and therefore usually wind up in landfills, you should begin with seeds or purchase from the nurseries that use natural materials in their plants' packaging.

All you need to achieve your results are a bit of patience, a little outdoors work, and the right learning beforehand. Once you see the literal fruits of your labors, the time and effort you've invested will seem worthwhile.
