How can I keep my plants and flowers for a longer time in my garden?

First of all, you need to protect the home garden from animals and pests. Every garden has a fence around it to protect it from the animals who destroy the garden and burglars who could rob your valuables.

Water regularly: There are many other aspects which can help you keep your plants and flowers for a longer time in the garden like timely cutting of plants and flowers, using preservatives or pesticides, watering them regularly.  

When on a vacation: You may go on a vacation leaving your home garden alone. Have you given a thought that the plants and flowers could die without water? therefore try to plant drought tolerant plants so that it needs only 1 watering per week. This saves water and time both and will definitely not stop you from going on a vacation.  

Install Drip Irrigation: This may sound like a difficult task, but it definitely is not. The process is pretty simple and you could purchase an inexpensive kit and it is better done during the start of the growing season. With this, you could install a timer on your spigot and you will never think about when to water your garden. You could install a timer on your sprinkler too.
