Fun Fall Container Gardening
Weeds are one of the biggest problems for gardeners who want a harmonious and uniform lawn. Gradually, they have adapted to survive and grow everywhere, and even the best-kept garden can fall prey to them. Although it may seem that all weeds are the same, in fact there are many varieties and the causes of their proliferation are varied too!
Learn to know the most common species and why they grow.
Weeds belonging to the Fabaceae (leguminous) family, such as white and red clovers, and species with a tapering root (such as cirsium arvense) easily grow in extremely compact or unmanured terrains. On the other hand, too much nitrogen favours the growth of species that ‘relish’ this fertilizer such as nettles and, generally, annual and perennial gramineae.
Summer is a very delicate period for our gardens. We should special attention to potential attacks by weeds that typically grow during this season!
Perennial weeds like Gramineae weeds or annual ones such as oats, sorghum, baynard grass, common dogwood, and Setaria can grow in non-irrigated and heavily dry soils. Not only that: many legumes and botanical plants (like Camomile!) love heat and you must keep a watchful eye on them.
Rain and cool weather are usually two very good elements to take care of our gardens. However, there are small weed plants lurking always ready to attack. In fact, plantains, daisies, chickweed, goosefoots and dandelions are typical of the rainiest and coolest times of the year – since the ground gets ‘suffocated’ with too much water, they take advantage of this, make room for themselves, and settle in.
