In a city full of greenery, it’s important to keep the plant-loving landscaper in mind.
In fact, it could help to make a list of plants that you like and the ones that you don’t.
“It’s a great way to have a plan of action,” says Dr. James Brown, a medical adviser with the Center for Plant Health and Plant Sciences at the University of Missouri.
Brown says you can think of your list as a checklist that you can check off whenever you have time.
For example, if you see a lot of plants, check the one that’s growing in the back yard, or the one in front of your house.
“A good place to start is the first plant on your list,” he says.
“The more plants you see, the better it’s going to look.”
If you’re having trouble finding the right plant, Brown suggests looking for some species that are “not a good fit” with your garden.
“Some people like to put their plants in groups,” he explains.
“That’s the way to find them.”
For example: Some people like plants that look like cacti, while others like plants with flowers, such as tulips, which are more like shrubs.
Brown advises you to try both.
If you don�t find what you’re looking for, Brown says, “just put it back in the garden.”
If the plants you’re searching for don’t look like the ones you want, you might have to take a step back and ask yourself: How will this look in the future?
And if it doesn�t look right, it�s a good sign that you may need to look at other plants.
So how do you know which plants to look for?
“You have to look through the landscape, and you have to be careful,” Brown says.
For instance, if the flowers on your plants look different than what you want to have, you may have to change your garden plan.
“You can try and see what plants you�ve got in your yard and if there�s any good ones you might want to get rid of,” he adds.
You might also look for plants that are hardy, but that aren�t going to get along with your neighbors’ landscaping.
“If you see something that you�re really liking, you�ll probably be okay with that,” Brown explains.
And finally, if a plant is invasive, you could be able to plant it under your lawn or under your window.
“Look for plants in the same areas as what you�d like to plant,” he advises.
For a list that includes the most common plants that gardeners love, Brown offers a checklist of some common names, such toadstools, lettuce, cabbage, spinach, and broccoli.
“They�re all good,” Brown adds.
“Just pick the ones with the names you like, and try to avoid plants that don�ts stand out.”
To keep the list organized, you can use the following tips.
When it comes to picking the plants to plant in your garden, keep in mind that it’s hard to know exactly what to look out for.
“We all like a little variety,” Brown cautions.
“But if you�m going to put all your plants in a garden, make sure you have a variety of things to plant.
You�re going to want something that�s going to be good for different types of plants.”
When picking plants to put in your backyard, make certain they�re well-drained.
If your lawn is a bit muddy, make it your goal to water it daily and to use a faucet that�d be good at getting water out of the plants.
“For the most part, plants are going to have to do that for themselves,” Brown warns.
“And if it�ll have to get watered daily, the water will probably end up being too cold for the plants.”
And if you don��t want to water your plants daily, you should also water them before you plant them.
“I�m always looking for plants with a good pH and good water,” Brown concludes.
To get the most out of a cactus, Brown recommends using a soil test.
“To get the best result, we use a soil testing device called a pH meter,” he explained.
“These are the pH tests that you do at the farmer�s market.
You have to use an acid solution, like baking soda, or you�l end up with too much water.”
“The pH meter will give you a reading for your soil,” Brown continues.
“Once you have the pH, you get a reading on the soil that indicates how well the soil is going to hold water.”
“Make sure that you put your plants at least six feet apart from each other,” Brown advises.
“One plant is going over the other, and the other plant is probably
