When you have the option, organically grown produce is almost always far superior to the other choices in the grocery store. Instead of buying your produce from supermarkets, you should try growing your own. This article will show you how to plan an organic garden right in your own yard.
Think about planting your seeds in indoor pots and then transplanting them to your garden once they become seedlings. Your plants will be more likely to mature this way. This is also a good way to tighten up your planting schedule. Your seedlings will be ready to go in as soon as you remove the previous set of mature plants.
Your plants will reach maximum growth if they have a sufficient supply of carbon dioxide. Most plants will grow better with more CO2. A greenhouse can concentrate the levels of CO2. Make sure to keep CO2 levels high to provide the best growing environment for your plants.
If you want your garden to sport flowers in the spring as well as summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs are easy to grow and hearty, and they keep growing in years to come. Remember that different bulbs will bloom at all different times of the year, so if you are careful to choose the right bulbs, you will see blooms in the early spring, and have flowers all the way to late summer.
If you have a vegetable garden, it is crucial they are kept in a spot with at least six hours of sun each day. Many vegetables need about this much sun to grow quickly. This holds true for some types of flowers.
Protect your deciduous shrubs which are tender. Cold weather significantly affects these plants, especially if they are in pots. Tie together the tops, and then use a sheet or blanket to cover the wigwam loosely. Covering your foliage in plastic will let the air in – and may lead to decay.
Peas have a better chance of survival when their seeds are started indoors as opposed to outside, exposed to the elements. Seeds will always germinate much better when you first plant them indoors initially. They will also be stronger, and better equipped to resist disease and insects. After the seedlings have grown strong indoors, it will be time for you to transplant them to outdoor beds.
