Climbing Plants

TIP! Consider starting your plants in pots and then planting the seedlings in your garden. This can give your seedlings the advantage they need to survive and reach adulthood.

Cover fences and walls with climbing plants. Climbing plants can cover a wall after one growing season only. No need to worry if a bush or tree is in the way, as climbers can grow through them. Also, they can match the shape of an arbor. Some varieties will climb and attach using their tendrils or branches, but some will need to be trained or supported with ties. Some climbers that have proven to be reliable are honeysuckle, jasmine, wisteria, clematis, and climbing roses.

TIP! Your plants will reach maximum growth if they have a sufficient supply of carbon dioxide. Plants tend to grow better when the CO2 levels are higher.

When fall arrives, it’s time to plant your autumn vegetables. Try planting your fall veggies, especially leafy greens, inside of a pumpkin!

When you finish this, you can plant!

TIP! Before you plant a garden you should plan it out. This way, when the sprouts start shooting up, you can recall where you planted each plant.

If your soil is highly alkaline, try mixing used coffee grounds into the soil. Using coffee grounds is a low-cost way to increase the acidity of the soil. The greens and vegetables need the proper balance and will grow bigger and stronger with the right mix.

TIP! Pest control can present a challenge for successful vegetable gardening. The vegetables are intended to be eaten, thus you should refrain from using harsh pesticides and chemicals.

See to it that you fertilize your garden. Manure can be effective, though you should use products which minimize pathogens. There are a wide variety of fertilizing options available, although which type you use is not that important; just make sure to use something.

TIP! When you water your garden, do it with care. A soaker hose can save valuable time by watering all of your plants simultaneously, removing the need for hauling a watering can or hose around to each plant.

All of your vegetable plants should have approximately two inches, just outside the stem, of organic mulch placed around them. Mulch helps the soil surrounding the plants remain moister for a longer time. It also helps prevent weeds from growing. You’ll find this is a time saver since you won’t have to pull them later.

TIP! Spray fragrances such as old perfume or aftershave on grass around your garden to help keep your dog away from the plants. Your dog will find more interesting scents to explore elsewhere and leave your garden alone.

Think about planting evergreen plants that will produce berries in the backyard. This will aid in giving your garden great color, even during the winter when other plants have lost their colors. There is quite a variety of plants that will give your garden a splash of color during winter, including the American Cranberrybush, American Holly, Common Snowberry or Winterberry.

TIP! Make sure to wear sun protection gear if you’ll be working in the garden in the sun. Wear sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, and sunblock.

Try to keep plastic bags on hand to cover shoes that are muddy. This keeps your flow going, so you can get back out to the garden quickly and finish your work.

Coffee Grounds

TIP! Store a few plastic bags near your garden to slip on over your dirty gardening shoes. You will save time and be back in the garden much more quickly by doing this.

Add used coffee grounds to your garden soil. Coffee grounds have a lot of nutrients that plants can use. The more nitrogen you have in the soil, the greater the growth of your plants will be, so adding grounds or compost will ensure your plants grow large very quickly.

TIP! Add coffee grounds to your garden’s soil. Coffee grounds have nitrogen that plants will utilize.

When you start planting your organic tomatoes, stagger your planting time by planting two groups of plants, three weeks apart. If you plant everything at the same time, you will have an overabundance followed by nothing. While ruin in one harvest can be an issue, having multiple harvests to look forward to can alleviate some of the issue.

TIP! One of the most important things to consider when plotting your garden is to make note of your available space. Amateur gardeners often make the mistake of failing to leave enough space for fully matured plants.

Know what you can and cannot use in your organic garden. Rather than dousing your garden with chemical fertilizers, use an organic alternative. The best example of this is to use compost. The reason you should use an organic fertilizer is that they do not build up toxic chemicals in the soil or water like the inorganic fertilizers do.

TIP! One odd but apparently useful tip for growing organic plants, is to lightly brush your plants with your fingers or a piece of cardboard 1-2 times a day. That may sound like a silly thing to do, but it’s been proven to help plants grow larger than they would otherwise.
