"N" Gardening Terms
Here are some of the common and not so common terms you will hear or read about when dealing with gardening.
native: Plant that hasn't been introduced into a region but that grows there naturally.
natural form: Shape a plant takes when it doesn't get trimmed, pruned or mechanically altered in any way.
naturalized: Introduced by man and growing as if naturally wild in a specific area.
nematode: Parasitic organism that decomposes organic matter and helps aerate the soil.
neutral soil: Soil which has a pH range between 6.6 and 7.3, neither acid nor alkaline.
nitrogen: Major essential plant nutrient helps to stimulate growth and coloration.
nocturnal: Nighttime; a nocturnal plant opens its flowers at dusk.
node: The point on a stem where a bud, flower stalk or leaf is attached.
nonselective herbicide: Chemicals that destroy most types of plants. Don't use a non selective herbicide in your garden if you want to kill weeds and keep the flowers--the chemical doesn't know the difference between them.
noxious weed: Weeds that are undesirable and difficult to control.
This list is by no means a complete collection of horticultural techniques and terms.
