Organic gardening is a widely accessible, eminently satisfying pastime. A beginning organic gardener may find the prospect of getting started to be rather daunting. What is important to know about gardening for a beginner? Well, read the tips below, of course!
Incorporate shade elements into any organic garden area. Shade gardens do not take a lot of work, people love to hear this! Your plants will need less watering, saving you time and money. This will also lead to slower growth, but at least there will be fewer weeds to eradicate.
A good tip to help your plants stay healthy and fight diseases is to use aspirin water. Dissolve one and one-half aspirins into two gallons of cold water, and use it to fortify your plants. Help your plants to fight disease by spraying them with the aspirin water. Spray them once about every three weeks.
Your watering schedule should flow perfectly with the seasons, yet be adjustable according to climate. The amount of water you need depends on when you are doing the watering, whether your water is high-quality and the grade of the soil in your garden. As an example, do not water your plant’s leaves if you live in a humid climate since this will most likely result in leaf fungus. Instead, aim to water the root system only.
Create raised beds with stone, brick or untreated wood. If you choose wood, it needs to be naturally rot resistant and untreated. Cypress, locust and cedar usually work best. If you use treated wood in your vegetable garden, the chemicals in the wood can make their way into the soil, and in turn, to your crops. You may have previously used treated lumber; if so, you should use a plastic liner to cover it.
