When fall is here, you need to plant autumn edibles. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots. Once you’ve cut its top and scooped the insides out, spray the edges and inside with Wilt-Pruf to prevent rotting. After that, your pumpkin planter is ready to use!

Plant slug-proof perennials. Slugs and snails are voracious eaters that can destroy a plant literally overnight. These garden pests prefer perennials with thin, flat, delicate leaves, particularly if the plant is not yet mature. There are, however, certain types of perennials that slugs and snails hate. Most of these varieties either have tough leaves or taste unappealing. A few great choices are achillea, campanula, and heuchera. Other options from which you can choose are hellebourus and euphorbia.

Your plant needs to have a new pot if the plant is mostly roots. However, if there are only a small amount of roots showing or none at all, your plant is doing just fine in its original pot.

Your plants need to adapt and must be gradually introduced to changes in temperature or condition. Try placing them outside in sunlight for about an hour or maybe two the first day. Over a period of several days, slowly increase the time they are allowed to stay outside. Hopefully, after about a week or so, your plants should have adjusted to the change. Now you can transplant them without any worries.

Select plants that produce a relatively high yield. Frequently, a hybrid plant will produce a higher yield because of its disease-resistant properties.

Irises can be easily divided. You can divide those overgrown clumps and increase the amount of irises you have. Uproot bulbous irises if the flowers have wilted.

Be sure to retain a sturdy offshoot on every piece that you intend to plant. Replant each one immediately.
