1. WATCH OUT FOR PESTS
You have to always remember that flowers‘ biggest enemies in your garden or in your home are pests. Every different flower attracts a different sort. Of course, you probably know that not all miniature insects are harmful for your garden-some of them are very helpful when it comes down to the leaves of the flower and the whole system of your garden. So don’t happen to try and eradicate every single little being that lurks upon your flowers. They are all there for a reason and if you are doing your job right those reasons will only be good. Besides, if you are afraid of not being able to recognize the dangerous and harmful little organisms, you don’t have to worry because either way you can’t see them with the naked eye. What you can look for and actually spot is any sort of damage on the flower petals or the stem itself. Then you can start worry and use all sorts of killing sprays or protective substances. This article will give you the details of some of those little insects that can be genuinely harmful to your garden.
2. PARASITES TO YOUR GARDEN
Naturally, the number of harmful kinds of bugs for your garden virtually seems innumerable but the truth is that there are only some types that are really popular primarily because of their devastative effects. For instance, the caterpillars are famous for chewing the leaves of your flowers which needless to say is superbly damaging for them. They start from the edges of the leaf and continue to eat it. If you do not stop them on time, your leaf will look like a burned sheet of paper. Beetles, on the other hand are different. They do not gradually eat the flower and in most cases they do not eat the whole of it at all. What they generally do is to pinch giant holes in the leaf and leave it like that so that they can return later.
In a similar way the aphids and the whiteflies produce holes or remove entire sections from the body of the leaves. However, there are some specific differences and if you memorize them you will greatly assist yourself with the extermination of those hostile germs. The best way to eliminate such insects is by buying spraying products or by placing some sort of insect venom in the soil. There are many kinds of those and the more expensive they the more effective they grow and the less are the side effects on the flowers themselves. If you visit a florist shop you could simply bring pictures and you will be told what your problem is and what you need to buy in order to get rid of it.
3. WEEDS AND DISEASES
The problem with weeds is not regarding just the worsened visual look of your flowers when weeds are around. The main problem that they cause is the amount of water and nutrition they absorb from the soil of each flower- provisions that should go to the flower itself. You can either rip weeds of, spray them or just providing enough protective substances for the soil so that you can avoid their reappearance. The most difficult condition of flowers is when they have caught a disease of some sort. Only a florist or a person with wide range of books close at hand or a very knowledgeable person can find the exact disease a certain flower is suffering from. There are many ways to treat it-using special healing substances or in the worst case scenario-replacing the flower.
