Having an organic garden is a great way to have access to healthy foods whenever you want them, which will ultimately lead to a healthier diet. Much patience and effort are required though, in order to produce a successful and flourishing organic garden. Are you wondering where to start?
Allow your children to assist with the work to be done in your organic garden. An organic garden will help your child learn more about plants and insects, and it’s a wonderful bonding time while growing healthy produce.
Preparing the soil for your perennial garden is easy. Only a garden spade and woods chips are necessary. To prepare the garden, slice out sheets of turf using the spade, and flip the turf upside down. Then, cover the newly turned soil with wood chips, approximately three inches deep. Let the area sit for a couple weeks, then begin digging into it and planting your new perennials.
Keep your tools handy to work more efficiently. Large pockets or a sturdy bucket can be used to store tools. Keep gloves, small pruning shears, a trowel and any other tools handy in order to increase the quickness of the work that goes into your garden.
Organic material piled three inches deep is an effective mulch in your flower gardens. Not only will you be adding nutrients, but weeds will be less likely to grow and moisture will be retained more easily. This will also give a nice, professional appearance to your garden all year.
