Marigolds sow themselves

There are plants in our gardens that sow themselves year after year. These include sunflowers, marigolds, forget-me-nots and even the beautiful thimble. But it may not be that every plant does it the way a gardener would like it. So you too in the future of the even sowing plants, you should take the following three tips to heart:

  1. Sometimes leave some areas of the garden untidy and do not pluck out any plant that looks out of the ground. After all, no one knows all the plants and often does not know that the supposed weeds should become a pretty flower.
  2. Look out for nudibranchs. These ravenous beasts do not just stick to lettuce, strawberries or vegetables in the garden, they destroy plants before they know what they are.
  3. Do not immediately cut off blooming plants, but let them stand still for a while. If you cut too early, you may also remove the existing seeds. So you can wait a long time for new blood.

Simple tips to care for many offspring the following year.
