Pay close attention to your organic garden, and take the absolute best care of it that you possibly can. With knowledge, your gardening skill will improve dramatically. Doing so will increase both the quantity and the quality of the produce you grow in your organic garden. Use this advice to take your organic garden to the next level.
The quick and drastic change in the weather conditions can shock your plants and cause them to die. It’s important that you gradually change temperate conditions over time, so that your plants can adjust. Place them outdoors in the sun for about an hour or two on the first day. Throughout the week, you should increase a little at a time how long you have them outside. Hopefully, after about a week or so, your plants should have adjusted to the change. Now you can transplant them without any worries.
In the cold winter months, you can salvage certain plants by bringing them into the house. Try to save plants that are expensive or that are resistant enough to handle the transition. Remember to be gentle when digging up your plants; carefully dig away from the roots and gently place the plant into a container.
Plants will respond with maximum growth if they have the amount of CO2 they require. Often, plants achieve better growth when they are surrounded by high levels of CO2. Growing plants in a greenhouse is the best way to contain CO2 for use by your plants. Plants grown in a greenhouse tend to be more lush and healthier due to the improved growing environment.
If you want your garden to blossom with flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant some bulbs in it. Most bulbs are hardy and require little to no care in order to develop into beautiful perennials that will reappear each and every year. If you choose your plants carefully, you could have flowers in blossom from the first weeks of spring to the end of the summer.
The approach of fall means you need to start planting autumn goodies. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots. Slice a hole around the stem, and pull the pumpkin top out. Then remove the guts and use Wilt-Pruf to cover the insides and prevent rot. When this is finished, you are now ready to plant.
You can plant wheat grass or cat grass near the plants that the cat eats. You could also place something that will cause your cat to go away from your plants, such as citrus peels or mothballs.
Having an organic garden means that you can enjoy fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables whenever you want. It takes a lot of work and tons of patience, but it is all worth it in the end to have a successful organic garden.
