Tending to an organic garden can be a highly rewarding and calming activity that anyone can participate in. But, newcomers may find the process to be somewhat overwhelming at first. How should a novice approach the learning experience of growing plants? Well, a great place to start is with the following helpful article!
It is important to do your homework so you choose plants that produce higher yields. There are genetically modified plants that resist cold and/or disease. These often give higher yields due to higher survival rates.
Plants require a good amount of CO2 in order to grow to their maximum height. With a high level of CO2 plants will grow much better. Greenhouses help contain C02 to keep levels high. Plants grown in a greenhouse tend to be more lush and healthier due to the improved growing environment.
Be diligent in your efforts to banishing weeds! If you’re not careful, weeds can take over your beautiful garden, ruining it. A simple tool that is useful in removing weeds is white vinegar. The acid in white vinegar kills weeds. You may also be using plants that need that very same acid. Use a spray bottle full of white vinegar and you won’t have to use your hands.
Use bulbs to ensure continuous flowers throughout the spring and summer. Bulbs are one of the easiest plants to grow and are hardy perennials that return each year. Different bulbs will bloom during different time periods. Therefore, if you select your bulbs correctly, you could have blooms in your garden for all of spring and summer.
Prepare your seeds by soaking them in a dark environment. Place a small amount of seeds in a little container, while filling it to the brim with water. This will give your seeds a healthy head start in the growth process. The young plants will survive better, and get a boost toward maturity.
