There are many all-natural methods out there you can use to grow a bright, vibrant, healthy organic garden. All it takes is a little research, and some strategic implementation.
Start your seedlings in pots inside and then transplant them into your garden. They are then more likely to survive and to become thriving, mature plants. This also helps tighten time between plantings. As soon as you harvest the mature plants in your garden, your new seedlings will be large enough to plant outside!
You can use the wooden handles of your tools as measurement sticks. Tools with long handles, such as rakes, shovels or hoes can work as great measuring sticks. Lay the handles upon the floor and use a tape measure along side of them. A permanent marker can be used to label distances. When you are gardening next, you’ll have a ruler beside you at all times.
For proper optimum growth, plants require sufficient amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). Plants are more likely to thrive in environments where high levels of CO2 are present. Greenhouses help contain C02 to keep levels high. Make sure to keep CO2 levels high to provide the best growing environment for your plants.
When partaking in gardening activities, particularly in the autumn months, keep an eye on those stink bugs. Stink bugs are attracted to tomatoes, beans and most fruits. If left uncontrolled, they can cause substantial damage in your garden, so make plans for how to protect your plants from these pests.
Use bulbs to ensure continuous flowers throughout the spring and summer. Bulbs are hearty and will continue to grow every year. Remember that different bulbs will bloom at all different times of the year, so if you are careful to choose the right bulbs, you will see blooms in the early spring, and have flowers all the way to late summer.
Do not cut your grass too short. If you allow your grass to grow a little longer, the roots will go down deeper into the dirt, helping the grass grow better and remain hydrated. When you cut the grass too short, the roots are often not deep enough, which causes your lawn to have dry patches of brown, discolored grass.
