There are lots of natural ways that you can grow a healthy, organic garden. You just need to learn what you can do, and then do it.
Try to avoid over-watering your plants. Too much water will make it more difficult for the plants to absorb the nutrients they need from the soil. Don’t go ahead and water your garden if the weather report predicts rain that day. After reviewing the weather forecast, you can decide whether or not to spend the time and resources watering the garden.
Mulch should be added to your flower bed and garden using at least 3 inches of material that is organic. The mulch retains moisture, enriches the soil, and prevents weeds from growing. Mulch also makes your garden appear neat and well cared for.
You should think about digging small trenches between rows of plants if you are planting an organic garden. The water will be able to flow everywhere and reach all the plants. This means you can stop watering so often. This will save you water and money.
Use a beer trap to capture slugs and stop them from eating your plants. Start by burying a wide-mouth jar in the soil, ensuring that the rim of the jar is just at the soil’s surface. Fill the jar with beer to an inch below the jar’s top. Slugs will be attracted to the beer and fall into the jar.
Some advise passing your hand gently over your newly planted seedlings each day. You may think it odd, but studies show that this action results in plant growth that is more substantial than would otherwise be achieved.
Be cautious of what you are using on your garden. Use a natural alternative to chemical fertilizers. This is one of the tenets of true organic gardening. The best example of this is to use compost. If you use inorganic products, your soil and drinking water could be contaminated with chemicals.
Gardening is within everybody’s reach, but you will only make the most of your gardening experience with knowledge. Put these organic gardening tips to use
