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.
It is important that you give your plants the chance to gradually adjust to the change in temperature and conditions, or you risk shocking them. On the first day, put them out in sunlight for about an hour or so. Then over the next week, gradually increase the time they are in their new habitat. When the week is done, your plants will be ready for the big move without any problems.
Start your plants in containers before transferring them to the garden. Your plants will be more likely to mature this way. This is also a good way to tighten up your planting schedule. As soon as you harvest the mature plants in your garden, your new seedlings will be large enough to plant outside!
If you want to keep your garden free of pests, start with healthy soil! Healthy plants are stronger and more able to resist both pests and disease. So if you want your garden to provide plants that are as healthy as possible, you need a good quality soil that contains few chemicals and that can accumulate salts over time.
When mowing the lawn, don’t mow the grass all the way down to the root. If you leave your grass a bit longer, the roots can grow deeper. This results in a lawn that is stronger and less likely to dry out. If the grass is too short, it produces shallow roots and that leads to a lawn with brown spots and dried-out patches.
Do you enjoy fresh mint, but don’t like how they engulf your garden in their growth? Try to keep your mint in a container in your garden to stop their rampage. The container can be planted in the ground, and it will still prevent the plant from dominating the garden.
If you’re going to grow peas, start them indoors before putting them in the ground outside. The seeds will grow better in your home if planted there first. Seeds grown indoors are much more resistant to diseases and damage done by pests. Once they are strong enough, you can transplant them outside.
Read instructions on new gardening chemicals and tools before you use them. If you fail to follow the directions, you expose yourself to safety hazards or a risk of experiencing adverse reactions. Be careful when it comes to your body, and always follow directions.
Only with the best knowledge can you take the most from your gardening efforts. Implement these important concepts in building a truly organic garden.
