You are ready to grow a healthy organic garden. What great timing. Below are some excellent ideas to help you begin down the road to an exceptional organic garden.
Avoid over-watering your plants. Excess water may hinder the plant’s roots from getting nutrition from the soil. Check the weather for the next couple of days to see if you actually need to water your plants. After reviewing the weather forecast, you can decide whether or not to spend the time and resources watering the garden.
You have heard a lot about the uses of compost, but you may not know how it is produced. Compost is comprised of a mixture of grass clippings, leaves, wood-chips, straw, twigs and produce scraps that have broken down into a kind of soil. This nutrient-rich mixture is preferable to commercial fertilizer.
Keep your tools handy to work more efficiently. You can make use of a bucket, or wear pants that have plenty of pockets. Have gloves, shears, a trowel and anything else you need handy for quick use.
In an organic garden, ruffle any seedlings with a piece of cardboard, or even your hand, a couple times each day. Even though it sounds strange, it will help plants get bigger.
Trap that rainwater! You can use rain barrels or buckets to collect rainwater for use in your garden during the summer months. This way, you don’t need to spend money on water for your garden. In most climates, there is an abundance of rainwater. You will also find that rainwater is a natural friend to plants.
You now know the basics of organic gardening and can get started soon. Even veteran organic gardeners might have learned a thing or two. Use the advice you have been given to make your organic garden bloom like never before.
