If you want a healthy organic garden, you have many options. Once you learn about them, they are surprisingly easy to put into place.
Choose perennials that are not vulnerable to attack by slugs. If slugs or snails find their favorite perennials in your garden, they’ll snack all night. When you wake up in the morning, there will be very little left of your plants. Snails and slugs like to eat perennials with smooth and thin leaves, especially if they are young plants. Some varieties of perennials are not preferred by snails and slugs, particularly perennials that have hairy, tough leaves or a taste that isn’t appetizing. Some of examples of these are achillea, heuchera, campanula, helleborus, and euphorbia.
When winter arrives, transfer some plants into the house to save them. Your best bet would be try to save the best or most hearty plants. Carefully dig around the rootball and replant in an appropriate pot.
Use proper soil for the best results. You should choose your soil depending on the plants that you are going to plant. For special requirements, you can build separate areas with soil that is right for certain plants.
When fall is here, you need to plant autumn edibles. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots. Clean out the pumpkin just like you would if you were making a jack o’lantern. Spray Wilt-Pruf inside the pumpkin and along its edges so that the pumpkin won’t rot. After this is completed, it is time to plant!
The best gardens start with seeds, as opposed to plants. Starting from seed is far less harsh on the environment than using plants you buy at the nursery. It is common for commercial plants to be packaged in plastic that is not commonly recycled, and therefore, it is better to use seeds or purchase plantings only from merchants who make use of organic packaging.
Fertilize your garden regularly. Manure is great in enabling plants to grow, although it’s vital to use commercially composted products in order to lessen the risk of a variety of pathogens. There are many fertilization methods out there; the type is not quite as important as actually using something.
Pest control is very difficult if you are dealing with your veggie garden. Don’t spray harsh chemicals since they will spoil your veggies. One way to keep pests at bay is to remain diligent about your garden. Natural pest control depends on the type of soil in your garden and the variety of plants growing there.
To give them a boost, pour out any leftover water from steaming or boiling vegetables on the plants or soil around them. Try adding used coffee grounds to the soil around plants that grow in acidic soil. Spray your plants with a 9:1 mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide to eliminate fungus without harming your plants.
