Make The Most Of Your Long Weekend With Gardening

It’s the first long weekend that you’ve had in a while and you want to make the most of it. Why not do some gardening?

You can transplant a bougainvillea that has become to big for its current pot. These plant have thorns so you will need to put on some gardening gloves to do this. First, though, put the bigger pot next to the potted bougainvillea on the garden table. Fetch some soil from the garden and put it in a packet. Place the packet next to the pots. Brace yourself, this project may chip your gel nail polish.

Put your gloves on. Place some soil in the bottom of the new pot. Turn the bougainvillea upside down, and shake its pot a bit to allow it to fall out of the pot and onto the hand that is receiving the plant at the top soil. Place the plant in the new pot and take off your gloves. You may find that your gel nail polish is chipped or that is has remained in tact. For more information about gel nail polish, browse here.

Take the soil out of the plastic in handfuls and fill up the spaces around the bougainvillea in the new pot. Water the plant and put it back where it usually stays.

Then, pick up your hedge scissors, and clip the parts of the hedge bush that has grown beyond the line created. Clip the pieces so the long bush appears flat again.

Put the scissors away and take a walk around the garden and pull out all the weeds that may have grown. Also pick up dead leaves that may have fallen from your palm tree.

Next, plant some pansies and geraniums in the corner of the gardern. Arrange the pansies in a circle on the inside, and the geraniums in a circle that surrounds the pansies. Use some red bricks to make a circle around the geraniums. Place the bricks in a trough, on their sides, at an angle so that the side of one brick lies on the side of another brick. This will create a spike-like effect, that creates an aesthetically pleasing rhythm around the flowerbed.

You may need to take a small break at this point. When you return, water the entire garden. Put the weeds and palm tree leaves outside so that the garden service can take them away.

Lastly, cut some roses off your rose bushes and bring them inside to put in a vase. Put them in a vase with water. And then appreciate the sense of accomplishment that you have achieved on one of your days off.
