The Basics Of How To Grow An Organic Garden

Most people have heard about or seen organic foods. You know which items are organic. They have different packaging and are more expensive. In this article, we will offer your some essential gardening tips that can help you to save more by growing organic products at home.

Be sure to plant some strawberries for your children and grandchildren. Ever-bearing ones are especially nice. Your children will enjoy being able to pick strawberries and will be ready to help you if they can get something sweet to eat.

One of the problems that people come up against when trying to grow organic plants indoors is a lack of natural light. If the garden will receive little sunlight, find plants that can grow in medium or low-light environments. If you simply must have a plant that has higher requirements for sunlight, you can use indoor UV lamps.

Prepare the ground for a perennial garden quickly and easily. Slice under the grass with a spade, flip the layer you have lifted over, and spread three inches of wood chips on top. Wait for a few weeks and plant new perennials in this area.

Use several inches of organic materials for mulch in your flower beds. This fights weeds, retains moisture, and gives your garden valuable nutrients. Mulch will also improve the general appearance of your flower beds.

Mix used coffee grounds into your soil. Coffee beans are loaded with nitrogen, which offers nourishment for plants. Nitrogen is generally a way to make your plants grow bigger, better and faster.

Spacing is essential when planting an organic garden. You can easily underestimate how much space the plants need until they begin to grow. Plants don't just need enough space for their physical size; they also need enough space for the air in your garden to circulate properly. Make sure that you map out your garden layout beforehand and place your seeds with an adequate amount of space in between each.

When planting seeds you should cover them with fine soil. Determine its depth by looking at the seed's size and multiplying it by three. Some seeds shouldn't be covered and must be in sunlight at all times. Two common examples of this type of seed are ageratum and petunias. If you don't know whether your seeds require sun exposure, check the seed package or search online for the information.

A useful technique for organic gardening, is to gently disturb your seedlings by using your fingers or a piece of cardboard one or two times daily. Even though it sounds strange, it will help plants get bigger.

Organic gardening is a high-risk, high-reward activity compared to normal gardening, but the rewards certainly are sweet. While chemicals offer an easy solution to many common gardening problems, the organic method is far healthier for you and everyone you share your food with.

Rotating plots of garden has been done for centuries, and there is good reason for that! Planting the same area with the same plants year after year will lead to disease and fungus. These kind of enemies to plants can stay underground ready for the next year to cause harm to your plants. By changing up varieties and locations, you are reducing the chances of damaging your plants.

It's time to plant some organic garlic. You should plant garlic cloves in either early spring or late fall. Your soils should be well-drained. Plant them approximately 4 inches apart at a depth of 1 or 2 inches beneath the surface of the soil with the pointed end facing upward. You can cut the shoots of green garlic as they are growing and use them as an alternative to scallions and chives. The garlic will be matured when the green tops start drying out and turning brown. Harden the skin by setting the bulb in the sun, it usually takes several days. Store them in a cool, dry location. You can store them as loose bulbs, or fasten them together into bunches.

Take a look below the surface to get a start. After planting tomatoes, for example, you must closely monitor the soil for the first signs of green shoots. Don't get attached--these hints of green are hiding an underdeveloped root system below the surface of the soil. These starts can stay on the tomato seedlings for a long time, and the seedling won't start to grow until these starts have gone.

If you are interested in using organic gardening techniques to plant perennials, you will be pleased to know that it is very easy. Use a spade to slice beneath the turf and flip it. Next, the area should be buried in a three- to four-inch layer of wood chips. In a few weeks, try cutting into your new bed and planting some perennials.
