The sun is your best partner.
Even in your grade school days, you’re made aware that the sun plays a vital role in a plant’s growth. This is still true until now. Exposing your plants to sunlight is necessary. You have to make sure that sunlight can pass through your garden. You can do this by making some adjustments on your roofing or rearranging your plants to experience sunlight.

Know when to prune your plants.
You have to consider the right time to prune your plants. But bear in mind that different varieties have different time for pruning. For instance, when you prune summer bloomers in late spring, you can expect the blossom later in summer. If you’re not sure with the appropriate time or season to prune, you can always count on the experts or the internet.
