Organic gardening can either be a wonderful hobby, or a nuisance nightmare. With the advice in this article, you will be well on your way to success in your organic horticulture endeavors.
You will need to properly lay sod. Prior to laying the sod, prepare your soil. Pull any weeds and break up any clods of soil. When the soil is clean, pack it tightly and create a flat surface. Afterward, you want to make sure the soil is moistened. Sod must be arranged in staggered rows; each joint should offset one another. Tamp down the sod so it has a flat and even surface, then using some extra soil, fill the gaps between. Water the sod everyday for the first two weeks until the roots grow enough.
Fight pests before you even plant, by getting your soil in shape. The healthier the plants you grow, the more resistant they’ll be to illness, fungus, or bugs. For healthy plants, start with healthy soil that is properly amended and free of chemicals in order to avoid salt accumulation.
You don’t need expensive chemicals to treat powdery mildew on plants. Mix plain baking soda with a small bit of liquid soap and water. You then want to spray this mixture on your plants one time a week until you notice the mildew disappear. Do not worry about your plants; the baking soda cannot harm them.
When the fall season arrives, it is time to plant your fall edibles. If you want to find an interesting container for your lettuce or kale, try a pumpkin! You simply need to cut off the top, scoop out the guts, and spray your pumpkin with Wilt-Pruf. You can start planting now.
