Enjoy school moments in your garden

Parents of school-age children should feel happy and secure when they say that schools will reopen.

During the last 18 months of this epidemic, you have had the right “rest” in parenting school to raise, protect, and educate your children.

Soon, if you plan to go back to school, your scholars will be on the doorstep — some for the day, while others move to colleges and universities. And here’s what you never thought about your new quiet home: your garden, in the backyard, on the porch or on the porch, is still a refuge that bears your name.

And he said, “Mommy, where’s my tablet ?!” Not shouting. No, your plot and container garden are quietly saying, “I have a special place for you.”

Your garden is noisy, whispering, and may take some time to hear. The sound of your garden is the sound of birds, the wind in the trees, the crickets roaring and – if lucky – the hummingbird rolling.

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your school-to-school moments:

2018-03-01 Treat yourself to a certain color. Harvest colors show shades of bronze, yellow, red, and orange at sunset. Plants fall Mothers endless color for weeks. November’s hard snow can finish before it completes its growth cycle, giving you 10 weeks of rich color.

Add to Plant List: Spring asters (blue), sedum (very winter hardwood, red and magnesia), Japanese anamo (white) and tree leaves are going into a colorful harvest long before they start to change color.

2. Pay yourself forward and plant spring flower bulbs. Tulips, daffodils, crows, and hyenas, which we enjoy in the spring, are planted in the fall.

Buying bulbs for Dutch may seem like a daunting task, but the best choice is now in stores. A few weeks ago, a boat from the Netherlands sailed to Canada with natural and fresh light bulbs for our gardens. A retailer will sell until the end of its collection this year. And it’s about him. There is no factory that makes things. Buy early.

The perennial sediment gives texture to plants in spring and summer, and is now showing large pink flowers.

3. Now is the best time of year to cultivate your grass – September is the grass month. Ben’s grandfather, Lynn Cullen, had previously said he could drop Sodom and still grow in September. We do not recommend that you try it, but we do recommend that you sow or soak where some grass needs to grow.

Distribute a four-centimeter layer of three-ounce mixture, seeds or soda and water every few days. And voila! It looks like a beautiful grass that removes its roots before winter arrives.

4. Plant a tree. September 22 is Canada National Tree Day. And September is the best month of the year for planting trees. With soil moisture and warm soil temperature, new roots will sprout over the next 10 or more weeks, providing moisture and nutrients to the tree anchor and well. Take our word for it, this is a great month to plant any winter-hardy plants.

5. Birds. If you did not see them last May while traveling north, you will have one more chance to see them flying south. Many migratory birds have left their borough of Bore Forest and are now flying south for the winter.

They do not rush to reach our goal in general. If you take out food and water, you will enjoy food and good weather – so why hurry? It is not like spring when they are hot to meet, get married, have a nest and raise a family.

The Hummingbird parade is fun. The males are the first to fly south after providing the necessary services to start a family in the north, followed by a young hummingbird new chick and eventually mothers who follow the south to reduce the risk of extinction. Or we guess.

Like parents of school-age children, Mother Hummingbirds left the nest and continues to watch their children closely. But they are taking some time to enjoy gardening along the way.
