Great Garden Begins with Professional Care from Experts
There is something so wonderful about being able to raise a great garden of your own. You may find yourself gazing at your plants every so often during the day. But sometimes you may need assistance from expert gardeners if your plants don’t seem to be thriving. That’s when you need experts in gardening services in Singapore to help.
What Kind of Plant Do You Have?
Many people buy plants because they’re attracted to the pretty colours and general state of health of the plant. You may be surprised how many plant owners don’t even know the name of the plant they bought though. So you should ask the plant seller about the kind of plant they are selling. Ask also about how you can take care of it.
One problem that often crops up among newbie gardeners is figuring out how much water to give their plants. Not surprisingly, the most common result is overwatering. Do your research first if you are not sure how much water is needed. Does the soil feel very dry to the touch? Or is it rather damp? If it’s too dry, the plant may be a variety that requires more frequent watering during the day.
You should also check if the pot drains well. Sometimes, the pot and the soil in it tend to hold in more water than they should. This can be harmful to the plant since the roots may rot. Ideally, the plant pot and soil should drain enough so that the soil remains damp. But this may vary from plant to plant so you need to research what your plant needs.
Sunny Vs. Shady
Another problem that you may encounter is checking how much sunlight to expose your plant to. Some plants love direct sunlight, such as vegetables and herbal plants. However, a plant that is used to a shady environment would burn under direct sunlight. This is why some companies hire gardeners skilled in landscape and gardening services for their headquarters. You really have to know which plants thrive where.
You may intend to keep your plant indoors. But there may be times that your plant has to stay outdoors for a couple of hours, to get adequate sunlight. If you are not sure, ask the plant seller what they recommend. Usually, the plant seller will have that information. If not, go online and search. This may mean the difference between life and death for your plant so it’s very important to be accurate.
