But since they have a much faster growth rate than those of plants, if they were not will-organized they would finally making problems. Looking the garden messy & clumsy too.

Water more often

Plants when they resume growing need more water than during the winter. For this reason, it is necessary to irrigate more often avoiding that the earth ground dries. But when to do that?
The best time is in the afternoon, passing the central hours of the day. In this way, the risk of a “magnifying effect” is avoided, that is, the leaves are burned by the sun when the sun’s rays hit the water.

Rejuvenate your green space by pruning
Pruning is a great tricks to rejuvenate some plants. The best time to prune in late winter-early spring.
