Spring has arrived and it’s time to think about which plants to plant in your garden.
Certain types of plants can preserve their beauty, but also medicinal effects, despite the bad weather conditions, so they can be the right choice this year. These plants can “forgive” you if you sometimes forget to water them, and some of them tolerate winter and summer quite well, so you don’t have to worry too much when the change of seasons occurs.
Here’s what you need to plant in your garden to make it look beautiful without much effort and knowledge.
1. Pothos Plants
Many people believe the pothos plant is an ideal plant to begin with when caring for houseplants. Pothos care is simple and minimal, making this beautiful plant an easy way to bring some green into your house.
Taking care of a pothos plant isn’t hard at all. There are many varieties of Pothos plants and they thrive in different conditions. They flourish in both bright and low light and can be cultivated in dry soil or water-filled vases. They do about as well in nutritionally poor soil as they do in nutrient-rich soil.
Although pothos plants are low-maintenance houseplants, you should know that they can be poisonous. Because it contains calcium oxalates, the plant can trigger discomfort and vomiting if consumed. It is toxic to cats, dogs, and children, but as previously stated, it will typically make them very sick but won’t kill them.
2. Rhodiola Rosea
If you like the simple beauty of succulents, but still want a little more variety, it is impossible to go wrong with Rhodiola Rosea. This perennial can withstand almost anything that nature prepares for it, from partial shade to full sun and bad soil, and it can also thrive on heavy sandy soil that most plants do not like.
If you are looking for plants that can withstand various changes, both changes in weather conditions and seasons, opt for herbs.
These include sage, rosemary, and thyme, all of which are pruned and re-grown on their own. Of course, we should not forget about lavender, which can be quite widespread in the garden, and other edible plants that are particularly resistant are mint and kale.
If you are lucky enough to live somewhere where agave grows, then plant this plant. This plant requires hot and dry areas. It grows best on weak soil and in rocky areas.
It is growing slowly but surely, and its lifespan is about 25 years. It can withstand low temperatures around zero, and in the continental area, it still needs to be protected from the cold.
If you want your yard to exude a beautiful scent, lilac is the right solution. It is not only a decoration for your garden, in the company of which you will enjoy and drink coffee with pleasure, but it is also ideal for forming a fence in your yard and adding to its privacy. Lilac grows very quickly and can reach a height of several meters in a short time. It thrives in a sunny place or partial shade and does not require any significant growing conditions. Its light purple flowers will be aesthetically pleasing for your eyes and a beautiful scent will take over all your senses.
6. Thuja Trees
If you want a gorgeous large natural fence, the right solution is thuja trees. It is not only fast-growing but also durable and easy to maintain, and this plant can grow several meters in height. On shallow and sandy soils, this plant is doomed because it requires a high concentration of nitrogen, but also potassium and magnesium due to the greater amount of green mass and photosynthesis. Several species of this plant are grown, but emerald, eastern, columnar, and giant thuja are the most famous.
Although you may not think of this plant when you think of flowers, it actually gives some very beautiful flowers. In late spring, they will be light pink. Plant the chives in a pot and keep them in a place with minimal shade or put them in direct sunlight. It needs a temperature of at least 20 degrees to germinate. It will reach its full height about six to nine months after planting. As an added bonus, chives are a perennial plant, which means that you will be able to enjoy them from year to year.
We hope that this guide will help you choose the plants you will use to decorate your garden and that you will enjoy spending time in it with your loved ones!
