Organic produce is much more tasty and healthy than the mass produced fruit and vegetables normally found at the supermarket. Rather than purchasing it from stores, you can choose to grow it yourself. Keep reading to learn how you can construct an organic garden of your own right in your house.
Cover the fences and walls with climbers. Climbing plants are great for hiding hideous fences and walls, and they usually grow within a season. You can direct them over certain branches or boards, or you can send them through plants you already have. Sometimes the plants will require being tied to supports, but some climbers will attach themselves naturally. Honeysuckle and jasmine are very beautiful varieties of such climbers.
If you want your garden to sport flowers in the spring as well as summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs are easy to grow and hearty, and they keep growing in years to come. 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.
When fall has arrived, it is time to plant the edibles for the autumn. If you’d like to change things up a bit this season, put away your standard clay pots and plant your lettuce and kale inside of a pumpkin 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. Once the pumpkin has been prepared, it is ready for planting.
Shelter your deciduous shrubs. Cold weather is very hard on these tender shrubs, and potted shrubs should be shielded and protected. You want to then tie the tops of the canes together, and cover them with a sheet or blanket. This is a much better method, instead of putting the plastic wrap around the plant. It allows proper air circulation that can prevent rotting.
Keep your plants dry and aerated daily. Damp leaves can lead to plant disease and parasites. One parasite you have to watch out for in particular is fungi. It is possible to get rid of fungi after it appears with anti-fungal sprays, but it’s better to spray at-risk areas before fungi appear.
Plant with autumn colors in mind. That idea is actually far from the truth. Autumn is the most colorful season of all, foliage-wise. Maple trees are an autumn rainbow of crimsons to yellows, and so are beech and dogwood trees. As you select your shrubbery, consider hydrangea, barberry or other similar plantings.
Spray old aftershave, perfume, or scented products around the grass of your garden to prevent your dog from entering it. Your dog will be less attracted to your garden when these scents overpower compost scents and other smells dogs like.
