It is important to do your homework so you choose plants that produce higher yields. If yield is important, choose hybrids designed to resist cold and diseases rather than traditional varieties.
The handles of your tools can double as clever rulers. You can convert any large handle tool, such as a hoe, shovel, or rake into a measuring tool. Lay the handles onto the floor and place a measuring tape beside them. Then, transfer the measurements to the handle using a permanent marker. Next time you are working in the garden, you will have a large ruler at your fingertips!
Plant a variety of annuals, biennials and perennials to keep your flower beds bright. The annuals and biennials are usually fast growing because they only last one season, and this will let you change the garden every season for a nice change of pace. You can use them between the gaps in shrubs and perennials where there is plenty of sun. Some flowers you can use are rudbekia, petunias, cosmos, marigolds, or sunflowers.
Use climbers to cover walls and fences. Many climbers can cover the wall or fence in as little as one growing season. You can also use them in your landscape to cover an existing arbor, or allow them to climb up trees, or through shrubs. Some types of climbers support themselves naturally through twining stems or tendrils, but others will have to be attached to something. There are many varieties you can choose from. Honeysuckle, climbing roses and jasmine are among the best.
Bulbs planted in the spring can flower all the way into summer. Bulbs will grow every year and are easier to take care of than seeds. Different bulbs will bloom during different time periods. Therefore, if you select your bulbs correctly, you could have blooms in your garden for all of spring and summer.
