For some people, organic gardening is a relaxing activity, while for others, it is a bother. These tips should help you to become a better organic gardener.
Make sure to lay the sod properly. Before laying the sod, have your soil prepared. Pull out any weeds and break up the soil. Lightly, but firmly compact the soil, making sure it is flat. Moisten the soil thoroughly. Lay the sod down in alternated rows, keeping the joints set off from one another. Firm sod until there is an even, flat surface; fill in gaps with soil. Water the sod every day for a couple of weeks. Then it should be rooted well and ready for foot traffic.
The correct soil can make a big difference in how your garden grows. You may need to alter the kind of soil you use based on the types of plants you intend to grow. You may also be able to design an artificial area that contains one type of dirt.
When fall arrives, it’s time to plant your autumn vegetables. Instead of a clay pot, show some fall spirit by using a hollow pumpkin to plant your lettuce or kale in. When you have finished cutting and cleaning the pumpkin, spray it with some liquid that will stave off wilting to keep it from rotting. Once you’ve done that, you can plant!
Grow some wheat grass or catnip for your cat to eat instead. Another option is to protect your plants by lacing them with offensive entities, such as peels from citrus fruit or even moth balls from your closet.
Protect your tender deciduous shrubs. Delicate shrubs that are sitting in pots should be sheltered from the cold weather. The tops should be tied together, and the wigwam should be loosely covered with a sheet or blanket. This method is preferred to wrapping a plant in plastic, since it promotes circulation and prevents rotting.
Protect yourself from sun overexposure while gardening by wearing the proper clothing. Wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Protecting yourself from harmful UV rays means you are less likely to get sunburned or suffer skin cancer later in life.
