It's no secret that not everyone out there has a green thumb. And if you're one of the many who don't, you might believe that horticulture can be difficult. However, with the right information, gardening can be quite easy. Read on to learn some helpful tips to help educate you on the subject of gardening, allowing you to become a more proficient gardener.

The quick and drastic change in the weather conditions can shock your plants and cause them to die. It's important that you gradually change temperate conditions over time, so that your plants can adjust. Place them outdoors in the sun for about an hour or two on the first day. Over the course of a week, slowly increase the amount of time that you leave them outside. By the week's end, your plants should then be ready for the big move!

Plants will respond with maximum growth if they have the amount of CO2 they require. The majority of plants grow much better when CO2 levels are at their highest. Growing plants in a greenhouse is the best way to contain CO2 for use by your plants. The levels need to be kept high for optimum greenery growth.

If you want your garden full of flowers spring through summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs are easy to grow and hearty, and they keep growing in years to come. Specific types of bulbs usually bloom at specific times of the season, so if you make appropriate selections, you can be rewarded with blooms from the early part of spring to the later part of summer.

Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. A hollowed out pumpkin can become a festive container for kale and lettuce. Cut an opening in the pumpkin and scoop the insides out. Then spray the edges and empty inside of the pumpkin with Wilt-Pruf so the pumpkin doesn't rot. When you finish this, you can plant!

Good green gardens begin from seeds, not plants. Starting with your own seeds is more environmentally friendly than buying plants from a nursery. Many of the plastics used for gardening simply end up going in the trash and clogging land fills. An environmentally-friendly garden is started with seeds or plants grown in organic pots.

That's not so bad, right? Like any other trade, the horticulture field is vast and there is a huge amount of information about it available. In many cases, all that's needed to make some sense of the whirlwind of information is a reference point from which to get started. Hopefully, the tips above have provided you with all the information that you need.
