Garden Crop Supports and Protection
Few summer dishes taste as good as those made with fruits and vegetables fresh from your own garden. Not only can growing produce enhance both your table and yard, it can also foster a love for the outdoors. To make the most of your plantings and enjoy their offerings, ensure they are properly supported and protected throughout their growing season.
Supporting your fruits and vegetables as they grow not only helps the plants; it can also help you maintain your garden. Using stakes, trellises, and obelisks helps your plants grow upward, rather than outward, conserving valuable garden space. Another benefit is that supports lift your favorite crops or blooms off of the soil, lessening stress on the roots. With a support, you can tilt or face your plants toward the sun relatively easily, for a robust yield. Additionally, supports and frames can make quick work of harvesting, eliminating much of the need for climbing and reaching through thorns or brambles.
Many favorite garden crops benefit from vertical supports, such as stakes and trellises. Beans and snap peas, for example, perform best when their tendrils can grab onto an upright support, like a garden stake or trellis. Obelisks and trellises are also great for some climbing vegetables, keeping them upright and allowing you to avoid brambles while harvesting. Cages not only work well for tomatoes, they also can support cucumbers and vining squash, and soft nylon netting will make a welcome scaffold for garden peas or blackberries.
As your fruits and vegetables grow, they may start to attract local wildlife. Keeping the harvest protected from both animals and cold weather will surely enhance your yield, and even extend the life of your plants. Birds, deer, rabbits, and insects will all gladly enjoy your fresh fruits and vegetables, so placing netting or plastic over your plants can deter these creatures. Fruit cages can safeguard a large area of your garden, while allowing you to enter the area for harvesting. Cloth tunnels traditionally allow light and moisture through to your plants, and keep animals out at the same time. These types of physical barriers can keep your favorite crops safe from marauding animals or weeds, without the need for chemicals. Placing a frost blanket, tunnel, or dome over your tender plants will protect them from cold nights, allowing the vegetables to thrive longer.
Growing fruits and vegetables in your home garden can be fantastically rewarding, for both your lawn and your recipes. Using innovative supports for your crops can help them grow tall and strong, while maximizing space in your plot. Keeping your plants protected from frost, extreme heat, and pests can also help increase your yield for you to enjoy your hard work. BestNest carries a wide selection of Plant Supports, Plant Aids, and Pest Control products to help you grow and protect your wonderful plants.
