Who does not need good hobbies?
Both the amateur and the expert may need hay tips when the time has come to pick up their green fingers and begin to luke, plant and fertilize.
Of course, the challenge arises if you have not done this before, or have had varying success with past advances in the garden.
We have talked to two experts in the field, and both agree that fertilization may be the most important success factor.
“It’s important to fertilize often, but little,” says general manager Jo Amundsen at Lørenskog garden center to click. no.
In the case of a beginner’s gardening tool, the advice to editor Tommy Tønsberg, from the Norwegian garden company and editor of Norsk Hagetidend, is that you get a good shovel and a good tear.
– If you have a good crop cutter you are well equipped.
With regard to growth funds, he believes that nothing special should be done.
– But remember good soil, and fertilizer, all plants are thriving.
Scratch up the beds
In addition to fertilizing the lawn, Tønsberg would start scratching up the beds, as he calls it.
– I would have removed foliage and cut perennials if it is in bed. But be careful not to damage the flower bulbs that may lie in the ground.
Wait with bushing
If you have taken over a garden as a result of housing purchases, Tønsberg’s council is waiting for a season to cut any bushes.
– They can be cropped a little, but it’s best to wait one year to see what has been taken over. For example, ornamental shrubs should preferably be cut after flowering, which is in summer.
Garden Tips # 1: Secure Growth
If you have not been in a garden earlier, you would like to start with something simple, which does not require great knowledge to get to.
Perennials are such a growth. It does not require much, but comes again year after year.
– However, they have limited flowering time, so choose different varieties and have different flowering times, Tønsberg expands..
And when choosing a perennial, according to NRK’s Green Pleasure, it is important to find a plant that fits into the garden and the growing conditions that are there.
Other crops Tønsberg believes will be easy to get for a beginner, and can be planted now in spring, Stemorsblomtser, ready-made onions and spring rolls.
He also holds a button on the Syrin, which is a ornamental shrub with long traditions and which only needs a little pruning and fertilization.
Hagetips no 2: Plenty of plantation
According to Tønsberg, many people make the mistake of spending too much money on plants and thinking too little about the soil they are going to stand in.
– Use a little extra money on a good and nutritious soil.
Hagetips nr 3: Klimasoner
When buying plants, look at the climate zone for which they are intended.
You should take care to buy a growth with at least the same climate zone in which you live.
For example, you live in climate zone 3, you can buy growth for climate zone 3 or higher.
Hagetips nr 4: Mose
Mose is both a beginner and more seasoned gardeners are struggling.
The council from Tommy Tønsberg is to set the lawn and not cut it too short.
Brown spots on the lawn
Anything else that can hit a lawn is brown spots, and even a pro can get broken areas of lawn.
Tommy Tønsberg’s advice is to shave a little gently on the brown spot, so sprinkle on some soil and finally.
Hagetips nr 5: Weed
If you have either taken over an old garden with flower beds or just decided that the wildness around the house wall will go away, according to Jo Amundsen it is important to remove all the weeds in the beds before you start planting.
And it does not just tear up the top of them. So-called rotugress, like dandelion, + has roots well in the ground.
One must make sure that the roots are removed, and either by using a hormone that causes the weeds to grow to death, or you can use something called Keeper, which breaks the roots, explains Jo Amundsen.
Hagetips nr 6: Duk og bark
Another alternative for those who want weed-free flower beds, according to Amundsen, is to use cloth and bark.
– If you use it, you can get a easy-going garden.
Hagsipp nr 7: The first weeks most important
Jo Amundsen thinks most will manage to get to a garden because most of the plants do not need much care.
– What matters is the first few weeks, the so-called creation phase. Then keep an eye on the growth and ensure that they grow well.
