Episode 159: Plants that Take Sun and Shade

Chances are, you’ve got mixed conditions in your garden. One area might be in full sun, while another spot a bit farther away is in full shade. Even beds that have the same exposure on paper may have larger plants that shade out the ground below. This presents a challenge for developing a cohesive look within a landscape. As gardeners, we’ve been taught that repetition is one of the tenets of good garden design. But how can one repeat groupings of a plant throughout a border that stretches from bright light to dappled shade? The answer is by utilizing plants that are highly adaptable and will thrive in both sun and shade. In today’s episode we’re singing the praises of these flexible species. They are invaluable assets to the landscape and, as a bonus, will hold their own when the light conditions of a garden inevitably change over time.

Welcome to the "Ground" section of diygarden.cc! In this section, we explore the foundation of gardening— the ground beneath our feet. Discover the importance of soil, learn about soil composition, and explore techniques to nurture healthy and vibrant garden beds.

The term "ground" refers to the soil or earth that covers the surface of the garden bed or planting area. It is the foundation on which plants grow and the medium in which their roots anchor and obtain nutrients.

The ground in a garden plays a crucial role in supporting plant growth and overall garden health.

Here are some key aspects of the ground in a garden:

Soil Composition: The ground consists of soil, which is a mixture of mineral particles, organic matter, water, and air. The composition of the soil can vary, depending on factors such as location, climate, and previous land use. It can range from sandy soil with larger particles to clay soil with finer particles. Nutrient Availability: The ground provides essential nutrients that plants need for their growth and development. These nutrients include nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and various micronutrients. The availability of nutrients in the ground affects the health and productivity of plants. Soil Structure: The ground's soil structure refers to the arrangement of soil particles and the spaces between them. It influences factors such as drainage, aeration, and root penetration. Well-structured soil with good porosity allows for proper water movement, air circulation, and root growth. pH and Soil Acidity: The ground's soil has a pH level that can be acidic, neutral, or alkaline. Different plants have varying pH preferences, and the ground's pH affects nutrient availability to plants. It is important to assess and adjust the soil pH as necessary for optimal plant growth. Soil Moisture: The ground's soil holds and retains water that is essential for plant hydration. Proper moisture levels in the ground are crucial for plant health. The ability of the ground to retain water and drain excess moisture is important for preventing waterlogging or drought stress.

The "Ground" section of diygarden.cc is your comprehensive resource for all things related to soil and its care.
