Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen from and in this segment I am going to talk about how to plant outdoors. Now there's millions of types of plants in the world and they all grow outside really well so if it's something that needs to be brought in for the Winter you can leave it outside all Summer and bring it inside or you can plant it outside and leave it outside if you live in a warmer climate. Now a lot of different types of bulbs there are certain rules. When you are planting flower bulbs or any type of plant, usually you want to put them in groups so I like to put them in triangles as opposed to a row and you just want to cover them up just a few inches deep. These are really pretty, Silapruvienas, they're going to be gorgeous right here and I'm putting them into a triangle. Now if you've got something that is in a container you want to take it out of the container. Now if it's got lots of roots you want to stimulate the growth so I want to break up those roots when you plant it. So this is a nice ground cover so I'm going to put it right here and hopefully it will just grow and really fill in right there. Just kind of separate it and just kind of fill it in. Now when you have got something that's a little bit bigger too you want to take it back out of the container and you want to again break up those roots because plants really want to have lots of air and new growth so a lot of times I'll just break the whole thing up, get some new growth going. You don't want to break it all the way to the point where there is no roots either and if it's going to make a little bush like this little Aster is going to, I think I might put it over here so you want to make sure and give them room to grow too and you can mix everything together and everything grows really well. Just put it, plant it right into the ground and cover it up. When you're growing plants outdoors you want to make sure and find out if they're a sun plant or a shade plant because you don't want to put a fern in a hot sunny spot. It might burn right up and outside of that you want to water it and give it lots of good soil but plants are really hardy and they should grow in almost any condition.
