You are ready to grow a healthy organic garden. It’s the perfect time to begin! Below are some excellent ideas to help you begin down the road to an exceptional organic garden.
Healthy soil will be your best defense against the pests that can invade your garden. If you create healthy plants, they are going to be stronger and therefore, less likely to succumb to diseases and insects. Healthy, rich soil with fewer chemicals will increase the yield of your plants, and reduce accumulated salts.
Use biennials and annuals to add color to your flower beds. These fast growth plants make flower beds vibrant, and they let you alter the appearance seasonally and annually. In addition, they work well as gap fillers between other areas, as long as those areas receive plenty of sunlight. Some of these that you might consider are petunias, marigolds and sunflowers. If those are not flowers you like, you can also try cosmos, holyhocks or rudbeckias.
Pre-soak your seeds through the night in a dark area. Place some seeds in your smaller pots and add water almost to the brim. This will give your seeds a good start by making sure they have plenty of water, which they need to sprout. The seeds will have a better chance of surviving and maturing.
You could try to boil weeds if you are trying to remain organic. A pot of very hot water is one of the most effective ways you can get rid of the weeds in your garden. Douse the weeds with this pot, just avoid the nearby plants. The roots of the weeds are damaged by the boiling water which, in turn, inhibits further growth.
If you decide to grow peas, think about planting them indoors when you first start them off, as opposed to planting them outdoors. If you were to plant them inside first, the seeds should germinate better. Give the seeds enough time to get stronger: growing indoors will make it easier for your plants to resist diseases and the pesky bugs. Once they grow a bit bigger, the seedlings can be easily transplanted to an outdoor garden.
Put money into a quality wheelbarrow and kneeling stool if you plan to do garden work often. Using a large portion of your time near or on the ground working on your garden puts a huge strain on your knees; therefore, having a portable, lightweight garden stool will greatly assist you in making gardening easier on them. As well, gardening can involve some heavy lifting and moving, so a strong wheelbarrow can really make that aspect much more effortless.
