There are a variety of all-natural techniques that you can employ that will create a healthy, vibrant organic garden. All you need to do is gain a little knowledge, and then put it to good use.
In order not to shock your plants, you have to gradually accustom them to the change of temperature and conditions. Start by placing your plants outside for a few hours only. Throughout the week, you should leave your plants out for a little longer each day. Hopefully, after about a week or so, your plants should have adjusted to the change. Now you can transplant them without any worries.
You don’t need expensive chemicals to treat powdery mildew on plants. A great home remedy is to mix baking soda with water and a little bit of liquid soap. Then, spray this mixture onto all of your infected plants once each week till the mildew is gone. Baking soda won’t harm your plants, and takes care of the mildew efficiently and gently.
If you want your garden to blossom with flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant some bulbs in it. Bulbs are generally very simple to grow and hearty, as well; they will continue to grow for years. Specific types of bulbs usually bloom at specific times of the season, so if you make appropriate selections, you can be rewarded with blooms from the early part of spring to the later part of summer.
Create your own garden from scratch with seeds, rather than plants. When opening a garden, the most green method of beginning is from seed. The planters used to hold nursery plants are generally not made from eco-friendly materials, and thus get thrown into landfills. Starting from seeds, or buying from one of the few nurseries that use biodegradable planters, prevents this.
Learn the best harvest time for each vegetable. Most vegetables have a relatively small harvesting window when they will taste best. Veggies such as zucchini or baby peas, for instance, taste their best if they get picked young. Tomatoes, however, are best picked from the vine later when they are very ripe. So, make sure you do some research, and find out when the best time to harvest your vegetables is.
Gardening is an excellent relaxation tactic. There are countless ways that people find to relax. Gardening is a great way to do so. The returns are huge for a very minute up front investment cost. The joy of eating food you created as well as enjoying the beauty of your garden is the best return of all.
To defend your garden from errant dogs, spray something with a strong scent, including aftershave or old perfume around the perimeter of the garden. This kind of scent is going to mask the scents your dog is attracted to. If your dog has no interesting smell to follow, the garden will not be a tempting place.
