So you don’t shock the plants, you should gradually get them use to a change in the temperature and conditions. Try to place them in the new area for a couple of hours at a time the first day. Throughout the week, you should increase a little at a time how long you have them outside. When the week is done, your plants will be ready for the big move without any problems.
You can use the wooden handles of your tools as measurement sticks. Tools that have long handles such as rakes, hoes and shovels can be used in place of a measuring stick.

Have a marker handy, and mark the distance with it. When you decide to work in the garden again, you will now have a ruler at your disposal.

Try marigolds, petunias or sunflowers for a brighter garden.
Cover any wall or fence with climbers. Climbing plants are extremely versatile, helping to hide an ugly fence or wall, often within one growing season. They may also grow through tress and shrubs that are already grown, or you can train them to cover your arbor. Some types of climbers support themselves naturally through twining stems or tendrils, but others will have to be attached to something. Reliable varieties include clematis, honeysuckle, wisteria, jasmine and climbing roses.

Be sure to weed your garden. If you’re not careful, weeds can take over your beautiful garden, ruining it. To aid in this venture, you might want to use white vinegar. White vinegar is a weed killer! By placing a white vinegar solution in a spray bottle, you can spray the weeds away instead of having to pull them out manually.

Cut an opening in the top of your pumpkin, scoop out the inside, and spray the entire thing with Wilt-Proof. This will prevent rotting. When you finish this, you can plant!
