You would like to have a garden that uses organic methods to grow healthy plants. Your timing could not be better. The following tips and tricks will help prepare you for organic gardening success.
You can help your plants resist disease by spraying them with aspirin water. To add the aspirin to the plant, dissolve about one tablet and a half into approximately two gallons of fresh water. You can just spray this on them to fight disease. Try spraying your plants with this around every three weeks.
One way to create a great organic garden is to allow for a portion of your yard to be undeveloped for wildlife. A natural area will allow beneficial birds and insects, many of which pollinate plants, to live on your property and help your garden grow stronger.
Keep the temperature in your home between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, if you are keeping or growing any kind of plant in your house. The temperature needs to remain steady and warm so the plants can grow. If you don’t like keeping your home that temperature in the winter, you may wish to consider getting a heat lamp, instead, to keep your organic plants the correct temperature.
It’s simple to lay a new perennial bed. It isn’t as hard as it may seem; you basically just slice down under the turf, flip it over, and spread wood chips four to three inches. Let this sit for a couple weeks, next dig into it to plant your new plants.
When mulching your flower beds, aim for anywhere between two or three inches of mulch. Not only will you be adding nutrients, but weeds will be less likely to grow and moisture will be retained more easily. This also gives your flower beds a more aesthetic aspect.
Procrastination leads to problems in a variety of areas, including organic gardening. Sometimes it might prove difficult to get in a little gardening time every day. However, you shouldn’t fret, as there are a few things you can do that can minimize the time you spend gardening when you do manage to get to it. You can pull a few weeds when you take your dog outside.
Within your composting heap, ensure that there is an equal split of dried and green plant materials. Examples of green plant material are spent flowers, fruit and vegetable waste, grass clippings, weeds, and leaves. Your dried material can be things such as sawdust, paper shreds, wood shavings, straw and cardboard. Never use ashes, meat, charcoal, diseased plants or carnivorous animal manure in your compost pile.
