You are going to try your hand at organic gardening. You’ve come to the right place! Listed below are some tips that will help you get started with your organic gardening aspirations.
When laying sod, it is important that you do it correctly. Prior to laying the sod, prepare your soil. Remove the weeds, then break up the soil into fine tilth. Compress the soil lightly yet firmly, and make certain it’s flat. Now make sure the soil is thoroughly dampened. Sod should be placed in rows that are staggered, where the joints connect to offset each other. Firm sod until there is an even, flat surface; fill in gaps with soil. Keep the sod moist and avoid walking on it until it is well-rooted, usually two to three weeks.
When it’s autumn, it’s time to start planting all of your fall edibles. Instead of using regular clay pots this year for planting lettuce and kale, try a pumpkin container instead! Cut an opening in the pumpkin and scoop the insides out. Then spray the edges and empty inside of the pumpkin with Wilt-Pruf so the pumpkin doesn’t rot. When you finish this, you can plant!
Garden vegetables should be planted in areas of the ground that receive a minimum of six hours of daily sunlight. This allows the vegetables to grow quickly and healthily. This holds true for some types of flowers.
Draw up a garden plan before you plant the first seed. Doing so means you can remember where each particular plant is when you start seeing sprouts arise from the earth. In addition, your small plants or groups of plants that are limited in number won’t become lost if you have a large garden.
Keep your pet out of the garden with old perfume or aftershave in the grass. This will mask any scents that might attract your dog and make your garden less interesting to him.
The sun can cause irreparable skin damage; therefore, it is essential to dress accordingly when gardening. This includes wide-brimmed hats, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Proper protection from the sun means a lower chance of sunburn, as well as a decreased risk of skin cancer.
