Once you’ve decided what you want to plant in your garden and you’ve cultivated them, the next step is to take care of your garden plants to ensure they get the right amount of nutrients and sunlight they need to mature and grow. When not taken care of, there are certain factors than can compete with and hinder the growth of your vegetables and the main aim of having a vegetable garden is to grow our own vegetables. How then can you take care of your vegetables and ensure they grow properly? Here are ways you can take care of your garden plants 

Controlling Weeds and Pest: Weeds, asides harboring insects and diseases also compete with plants for nutrients and thus, hinder their growth. As such, it’s best to weed regularly to keep weeds at bay, get rid of dead vegetations such as leaves, pulled weeds and plant stalks; in order to get the best from your plants. If you own a small garden, you can just uproot the weeds but if you own a large garden, it’s best to use tools like hoe to remove weed. Pests like mites, beetles, whiteflies, bugs, and aphids are a major problem in a garden and must be prevented in a garden as they feed on and kill plants in the garden. You can control or prevent pests from entering your garden by getting rid of weeds, removing the most affected plants, installing traps and using appropriate pesticides to eradicate a large amount of pests. You should always be careful not to get fake pesticides as it’ll cause more harm than good. However, eradicating weeds and pests in your garden can revive your plants and protect your garden 

Water your Plants: Watering your plants consistently will ensure your plants grow well; as plants need water to survive. Although, you should avoid over watering as it gives way for mold to grow on top of the soil, as well as causing plants to wither and have dead or yellow leaves. Whereas lack of water can also cause plants to wither as well as stunted growth and dead or brown leaves. As such, you should ensure that plants get the right amount of water they’ll need and, if you own a big garden, consider getting a soaker hose, as it’ll ensure that plants get enough water without their leaves getting wet in order to prevent problem of disease. Also, be careful when watering newly planted seeds; to avoid washing away the seeds.

Use Clean Garden Tools: Dirty garden tools can as well spread diseases to your plants; especially when during weeding, watering (with watering can) and pruning, therefore inhibiting their growth or even killing them. It’s recommended to always clean and disinfect your garden tools before and after use to ensure they’re safe for use on your plants. For good disinfectants, you can consider using trisodium phosphates or chlorine to wash your tools

Consider Applying Fertilizers: Plants require nutrients to grow and, at times, your soil may lose fertility or just lack some certain nutrients thus, leaving plants with inadequate nutrients to survive. When your soil has low fertility , it’s always best to apply fertilizers so your plants get the nutrients they need to grow. Although, it’s best to follow the manufacturer’s directions when applying fertilizers because as helpful as they may be, they can affect plants for example, when applied at the wrong time or when applied in high amount. And, always ensure you get the best ones as they’re fake fertilizers in the market which can also harm your plants when used.

Owning a garden requires more than just planting your vegetables/fruits and leaving them to grow. Plants require special care and maintenance to ensure that they grow properly so they’ll be healthy enough for consumption. Check out reviews on the best garden tools on Kitchen Home.
