Poinsetta plant care temperature to about 75 degress Fahrenheit. From late spring to the middle of fall, morning and evening dew will fall as rain. As with anything, provide adequate space for a plant's growth and when conditions are right, expect fruit production.
Squash moths - A squash-loved aphid seems the only way to defeat the moths. Spray with an organic plant food or apply a water-proofing powder as you harvest the fruit. Spray also keeps the moth from reproducing.
Roses - Raccoons in Portland made quite an infestation of the roses in my gardens. Two days before blossoming time I read on the Internet that people who have been burned by roses should wear rubber gloves, or use a spray bottle of water, to protect their hands. The water should be sprayed directly on the petals - not on the plant itself.
Seed of some warm-season vegetables, such as tomatoes and peppers, should be started indoors, in flats, at around 50 degrees Fahrenheit for the early fall and winter. In my experience, I find it easier to start the seedlings in flats on moist paper towels placed inside trays with a little tomato or pepper seed. If you have had trouble with peppers and your plants were indoors in a window, you can also buy starter flats for starting seedlings. You just won't need to space them out as much. If you plan to be away from home in the greenhouse, you should move the seedlings to the greenhouse itself. If you are planning to transplant the seedlings to the garden after the growing season is over, you may want to mark the locations where the seedlings will be planted.
Fertilize after the frost
Seeds and Seedlings - If you have started your seeds indoors, be sure to transplant them to their permanent locations after the danger of frost has passed. You can simply use a spade, push the seedlings out of the flats and mark the location on the ground where the seedlings will be placed, before covering the flat with soil.
Potting Soil -
You need to prepare your soil well in the beginning of your vegetable gardening season. It should be fine and moist (about 60% moisture) to hold the seedlings and transplants, but not wet. If you are planting in individual pots or trays, the soil should be moist enough to allow the seedlings to develop healthy root systems. If you are growing in large pots that have sides, they should be 2 to 3 inches high, to ensure that the soil drains freely. Mix together well and amend with compost or manure, a little wood ash or shredded leaves or pea pods to increase the nutrient content of the soil. Do not add soil additives until after the spring planting.
Spray for Moths, Mosquitoes &, Other Pests -
There are several sprays available to control insects that are attracted to plants and to keep fruit-eating pests away. Organic sprays do not contain toxins or pesticides that may be harmful to the environment.
Use a natural insecticide, such as cinnamon or clove oil, in the flowering and fruiting stages of plant growth, when flowers are at their peak.
Other insecticides are also available, and can be effective, if you choose one based on the particular insect in question. An all-natural insecticidal soap product may be a good choice, or you may have success with a plant food or vinegar. For a long-lasting protection, apply pesticides with a liquid or dusting material.
Apples - A natural way to control apple maggots is to rub cloves onto the tree where they have attacked. The tree will remain free of the pests until the cloves have dried and died off. If you want to control them right away, spray the apple trees.
Celery and onion sets - Remove the outer leaves of the set and sprinkle the exposed tops with water and a few drops of vegetable oil. This will keep the aphids from sucking the roots of the plants. Spray with insecticide when aphids start appearing.
Peppers - Spray when aphids first appear. Sprays are effective but must be reapplied when their protection wears off.
Tomatoes and Eggplants - Apply insecticides in spring, while the plants are still emerging. Reapply every two to three weeks until pest control is no longer necessary.
Keeping Fruits Healthy
Remove Pests as They Appear
Brussels Sprouts - Remove Brussels sprouts after they have turned green and are about the size of a quarter. Check each plant on a daily basis for signs of pest attack. Remove and destroy or take to the compost pile any pest-infested sprouts. You can also try eating some of the sprouts before you see signs of pest damage.
Melons - Stem to stun melons, by pushing the stem down through the fruit as far as it will go.Ovo sprečava male štetočine da napadnu unutrašnjost ploda. Uklonite sve štetočine koje napadaju vanjski dio ploda.
Luk - sačekajte da se prorijedi i uberete pojedinačni luk dok ne bude prečnika oko 2 inča. Rana berba malog luka može uzrokovati cijepanje i ne tako dobro izgleda luk. Nećete htjeti da se to dogodi kada luk ode na tržište.
Bube za tikvice - Uklonite bube za tikvice s vinove loze prije nego što naprave bilo kakvu štetu. Bube tikvice su obično smeđe, ali izgledaju kao komar, sa crvenkastim nogama i sitnim očima. Potražite ih na donjoj strani listova, kao iu grozdovima. Bube tikvice jedu neke vrste insekata, tako da ćete možda moći potaknuti populaciju buba prskanjem biljaka, ali ova praksa ima prilično kratkoročni učinak. Držite bube od tikvica podalje od cvjetova tikvice.
Jagoda - Berite plodove dok sazrijevaju, kako biste podstakli razvoj crvenih jagoda bogate boje. Jagode su vrlo krhka biljka i mogu se oštetiti ako ih pustite da prezreju.
Opekotine od sunca - Neke biljke kao što su dalije mogu tolerisati visoke ljetne temperature
