Organic gardening is very popular these days but many people are afraid to dip their toes into it. Fear of failure, given the great care and consideration that must go into it, often scare people away. The following article will give you some techniques that can be used to help you start growing your own organic garden.
Slowly acclimatize your plants to the outside environment to keep from shocking them. Put them in the sun outside for a couple of hours during the first day. Then over a weeks time, slightly increase their time outside. By weeks end, you should have plants that are ready for a permanent home outside with no problem!
Plants that climb can hide fences and walls. Climbing plants are known to be very versatile, and can help hide any ugly wall or fence, and this often only takes one growing season. They may also grow through tress and shrubs that are already grown, or you can train them to cover your arbor. Some types of climbers support themselves naturally through twining stems or tendrils, but others will have to be attached to something. Wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle, clematis and some rose varieties are good choices for climbers.
Try to ensure your plants are dry and have enough air, daily! Moisture on plants is sure to attract disease and parasites. In fact, fungi love a wet plant and can cause a great deal of damage. You can rid your garden of fungi with fungicidal sprays. However, it is best to treat your garden before there are problems.
You should think about adding evergreen plants that yield berries into your yard space. These types of trees can offer your garden a splash of color, especially during the winter when all other plants and trees have lost their hues. Some evergreens that will provide winter color are the American Holly, Common Snowberry, American Cranberrybush, and the Winterberry.
Put money into a quality wheelbarrow and kneeling stool if you plan to do garden work often. It’s rough on your knees to spend lots of time on the ground kneeling or squatting. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a portable, lightweight garden stool on hand. Also, gardening can involve a lot of heavy lifting and moving items, therefore a robust wheelbarrow can make that aspect much easier.
