Many people dream of having their own organic garden, but how many actually get around to doing it? Many people feel intimidated by gardening because it is so unfamiliar to them. Once you’ve read through this article, you will feel more confident about creating the garden of your dreams.
As you prepare to plant shrubs and trees in the organic garden, make sure your holes are rough, not smooth. If the sides of the hole you dug is packed hard by the shovel, the roots of your plant may have difficulty penetrating the surrounding soil.
Garlic is an excellent choice to grow organically. Plant garlic cloves individually. Do this in early spring or during the fall in moist and well drained soils. Plant each bulb at least four inches from each other. Bury them about two inches in the soil with their pointed end facing up. You can cut the sprouts as they grow and use them to replace scallions and chives. The garlic will be matured when the green tops start drying out and turning brown. The bulbs should be dried well by the sun for a few days before storing. The garlic should be stored out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry place.
Consider the value of the crops you choose to grow. However, different people can have varying opinions as to how much a specific plant is worth. Growing plants organically is much more affordable than always purchasing them from the grocery store; over time, the savings will definitely add up. Choose to plant items that you enjoy and you will benefit the most from them.
