Indoor herb gardens are not only a convenient source of fresh herbs, but also a beautiful addition to your home’s décor. Growing herbs indoors is a great solution if you don’t have a lot of outside space or just want to brighten up your house with a little bit of greenery.
Another month to relax and enjoy your garden, although there are some projects the keen gardener can undertake. As in July, the crucial task is providing sufficient water to plants. The neediest plants are lawns (but not Bermuda or zoysia), vegetables, some annuals and some perennial shade flowers. Many plants in containers are likely to need water daily.
If you're looking for some beautiful flowering plants to add to your home, you've come to the right place. In this article, we'll show you some of the top attractive flowering plants you can grow at home.
July is another good month for enjoying the garden rather than for planting owing to the heat. The most important task now through to September is ensuring plants have sufficient water. Except for several native plants and well-established drought-resistant plants, all plants need regular watering.
While you might want to water plants and control your garden every single summer, no one wants to drag their kinky, dragged up, cumbersome hose to the gardens every single day. The hoses are heavy, they kink and bunch up, and they often take too long to unfurl and also furl back up, making watering the plants a massive hassle.
June is the ideal month to simply enjoy your garden as most of the spring planting should have already been done but the hottest days yet to arrive.
May is the time to finalise all the spring planting, as the increased heat boosts all plants to really take off.
From now until November one key to success is to water deeply but appropriately for each plant.
Of course, the Algarve boasts colour year round, but April has the strongest punch of colour of any month. March was the first spring planting month, but if you did not get it all done, there is time to catch up in April. April can bring heavy rain interspersed with warm sunny days, speeding growth. Pests also benefit from the increased warmth, so one should pay attention to early control to avoid wreaking infestation later.
