You are ready to grow a healthy organic garden. Now’s the time! There are insights here that will aid greatly in your quest to establish that perfect organic garden for your family.
Remember to buy plants for your organic garden in an intelligent manner. It is especially important to understand how to buy perennials and annuals. It’s important to select plants that have budded but haven’t bloomed yet. Doing this makes it so that they can start to grow a strong root system.
If aphids are a problem in your organic garden, then good “old-fashioned” soapy water may be just the trick to solve your dilemma. Just spray the entire plant – buds, leaves, and stems – with a light solution of soapy water and follow up with a second spray of clean water.
Over-watering can essentially drown the roots of plants, making them unable to grow well. Before watering your plants outdoors, check to see if there is rain in the forecast. If rain is in the forecast, it is best not to water that day.
If you are planting seeds in containers, a good rule of thumb is that the seed’s depth should be around three times its overall size. However, you should always know that some seeds cannot be covered, even the slightest bit, because they need to be in direct sunlight. Two of the common examples are petunias and ageratum. If you are unsure as to whether or not your seeds should be covered or not, try to read the package or find the answer online.
You are now well-equipped with insight on creating an organic garden. Even if you are a experienced organic gardener, you still should have learned something new from this article. These tips should get you started, and with some ideas of your own, you should have a thriving, beautiful garden in no time
