Successful organic horticulture requires the use of some particular methods and techniques. You just have to learn these ways and utilize them.
To keep your plants from getting shocked, you need to gradually introduce them to changes in temperature and conditions. Put them in the sun outside for a couple of hours during the first day. Over the course of a week, slowly increase the amount of time that you leave them outside. By the time the week ends, your plants will be ready for their big move and should have no problems!
Use pots to start your plants, then transfer them to a garden when they become seedlings. They are more likely to survive the transition to adulthood with this method. This also helps tighten time between plantings. Once you’ve removed the previous group of plants, your seedlings can go into the ground.
Plant some perennials in your garden that repel slugs. Your plants can be destroyed by slugs and snails overnight. They gravitate towards perennials with smooth thin leaves, particularly on younger plants. There are, however, certain types of perennials that slugs and snails hate. Most of these varieties either have tough leaves or taste unappealing. Achillea, euphorbia, helleborus, heuchera and campanula are good choices that slugs don’t like.
Plant vines like ivy to cover fences and dividing walls. Climbing plants are extremely versatile, helping to hide an ugly fence or wall, often within one growing season. They can be trained to grow over an arbor, or through trees and shrubs that are already in the garden. There are those that have to be fixed to a support, but others will find a surface to cling to all on their own through twining stems or tendrils. Some of the most reliable varieties are wisteria, clematis, jasmine, honeysuckle and climbing roses.
Yes, you really have to weed. Those nasty weeds can turn your beautiful garden into a scruffy version of its former self. White vinegar is a pesticide-free way to battle weeds. White vinegar can kill weeds! A spray solution is much easier to apply than to rid your garden of weeds by hand.
A garden can be planted by anybody. However, those who have taken time to do research will gain the most from their crops. Use what you have learned to make your garden grow!
