You tend to your prized flower beds every single day. You water and fertilize them consistently with care. But even though your precious garden may be getting pampered throughout the year while you’re home, chances are, it’s going to get a little lonely during those days or weeks that you’re away on vacation. Luckily, though, with a little planning, your garden will be just fine while you’re away.
Marvin Gardens has come across a handy preparedness list from ShelterPop for you to follow before you head out on holiday and it’s sure to keep your garden looking lush and healthy while you’re away.
- Weed and pull off spent blossoms. This will help guarantee that water is reaching your plants and not being sucked down by the weeds.
- Make sure that your flower beds are properly insulated. If you’ve already laid down mulch earlier in the season, just top it off with a fresh layer.
- Make sure your garden is watered while you’re away is a must.
- Group potted plants together out of direct sunlight and go for self-watering planters.
