You have many options available to enable you to grow a vivacious and colorful organic garden of your very own. Once you learn about them, they are surprisingly easy to put into place.
Ward off certain diseases that plague plants with the use of aspirin. Dissolve three aspirin in four gallons of water. Help your plants to fight disease by spraying them with the aspirin water. Be sure to repeat this process every two or three weeks.
Having a garden of perennials can be an easy and quick process. Slice under the grass with a spade, flip the layer you have lifted over, and spread three inches of wood chips on top. After a few weeks, you can then dig into the turf and plant the perennials of your choosing.
Organic material piled three inches deep is an effective mulch in your flower gardens. Mulch will minimize weed growth and maximize nutrients and moisture. By adding mulch, you can give your flower beds a finished appearance.
Coffee grounds are good for your soil. Coffee grounds are full of nitrogenous nutrients that growing plants need. The more nitrogen you have in the soil, the greater the growth of your plants will be, so adding grounds or compost will ensure your plants grow large very quickly.
Spacing is one of the primary considerations when planning an organic garden. You will most likely underestimate how much space plants will need as they grow. Your plants will need the space not only because of their physical size, but also because the space will provide air circulation for the garden. Make sure your seeds have a good amount of space between each other for optimal growth.
Do not let your gardening chores add up. You may not have a lot of time to exclusively devote to your gardening hobby, but you can make the most of the time you do have. If you’re outside with your pet, try to remove weeds when your pet is doing his business.
Anyone can have a garden, but it takes knowledge to have a productive and healthy one. Be sure to try out these organic gardening ideas.
