Organic gardening may be a major pain, but also headaches as well. The following advice will show you in becoming an accomplished organic gardener.
The ideal temperature to set your thermostat for indoor plants should be kept between 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. The temperature needs to be this warm so the plants can grow. If your thermostat is normally kept lower in winter, you could use a heat lamp on organic plants instead.
It can be easy to quickly prepare your perennial garden. Use your spade to slice chunks of turf up, turn the turf over, and spread wood chips on top to a depth of four inches. Allow for at least 10 days to pass, then plant your perennials.
Have plastic bags on hand that you may cover your muddy gardening shoes.
Pine is a mulch than you might think. Cover your beds with the needles, they will release acid into the soil and nourish your plants.
Use a laundry basket when you want to collect produce from your produce. The basket will function as a makeshift strainer for the fruits and vegetables.
When you are growing seedlings in your organic garden, try lightly petting your seedlings — either with the palm of your hand or something like a sheet of cardboard — once or twice each day. It may sound a little odd to do this, but research has shown that handling the seedling like this often will make them grow bigger than seedlings that are ignored.
Fill this jar with beer within one inch of the top. The scent of the beer helps attract slugs into the jar and they will become trapped.
Create a raised bed for your garden out of stone, brick or untreated wood.Choose wood that is naturally resistant to rot and does not contain any chemicals. The best varieties include cedar, locust and cedar woods. In a veggie garden, avoid using treated wood to enclose or demarcate different sections of your vegetable garden. If the ground cover you’ve used already contained treated lumber, at least take the time to make a plastic lining beneath the soil.
