Organic horticulture can either be a major headache, or a very relaxing hobby. If you want to be a great organic gardener, follow these hints.

TIP! Transfer your favorite plants indoors to rescue them from the winter frosts. Try to save plants that are expensive or that are resistant enough to handle the transition.

Make sure you remove the weeds from your garden! A vibrant garden will be overrun with weeds if they are left alone. A clever way to accomplish this is with the help of some white vinegar. White vinegar is a fantastic weed killer! Keep a solution of vinegar diluted with water on hand to spray on weeds.

TIP! If you want flowers in spring and summer, plant bulbs in the garden. Most people have no trouble successfully growing bulbs, and their flowers will return each and every year.

Keep your plants dry and aerated daily. Moisture on the surface of a plant can attract parasites, and cause disease. A common parasite found in the plant kingdom is fungi. Proactively treat fungi through the use of fungicidal sprays and treatments.

Mint Leaves

TIP! Interested in using Mother Nature to keep pests at bay the natural way? Slugs are repelled by bordering your vegetable garden with either onions or marigolds. Wood ash, when used as mulch, can help keep insects away from trees and shrubs.

If you find yourself in love with mint leaves, but not with how they dominate a garden, read on. You can slow down this growth by planting them inside a pot or container! The container will keep the roots from spreading throughout you garden, and prevent the mint leaves from sprouting in other areas.

TIP! If you decide to grow peas, think about planting them indoors when you first start them off, as opposed to planting them outdoors. When the plants are started inside, the seeds will have an easier time germinating.

Create your own garden from scratch with seeds, rather than plants. Once the plant is healthy enough, replant it in your garden with the appropriate type of soil. The plastics used in nurseries are rarely recycled and ends up in landfills, so it is best to start with the seeds or buy from nurseries who use organic materials in packaging their plants.

TIP! Gardening can be a relaxing hobby. There are many ways to find personal relaxation and peace.

You can create the look and feel of an English garden by mixing different plants of varying heights throughout your flower bed. If you want a more organized look, select plants that will grow to the same height and put them in the same bed.

TIP! In the hottest time of the day, most vegetables are less firm; even the act of harvesting the veggies may cause bruising. You can also protect both your vegetables and the plant they grow on by cutting them off instead of twisting them off.

Add aspirin to your plants to help them fight sickness. Dissolve three aspirin in four gallons of water. Help your plants to fight disease by spraying them with the aspirin water. Use this method to spray your plants every three weeks.

TIP! Try using aspirin water for fighting plant diseases. Three aspirins per four gallons of water will help keep your plants healthy.

The ideal temperature to set your thermostat for indoor plants is between 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit during the daylight hours. The plants need this temperature in order to effectively grow. If your home isn’t that warm during in winter, try a heat lamp to use on your organic plants instead.

TIP! Prior to working in the garden, make sure any cuts on your hands heal completely, or shield any cuts from contact with chemicals and dirt. If you have an open cut while gardening, contact with dirt or debris can infect the wound.

You should add a two to three inch layer of organic mulch to your flower bed. By doing this, you can lock in moisture, discourage weed growth, and nourish your plants. This also gives your flower beds a more aesthetic aspect.

TIP! Your compost pile should contain green plants and dried ones in equal amounts. Green plant material can include items such as leftover produce waste, grass clippings and leaves.

Working in the garden doesn’t have to be grueling; learn to work more efficiently. Don’t spend 30 minutes searching for a tool. Prepare your equipment before you go into the garden and put everything away afterwards. If you need, use a tool belt or even pants that have quite a few pockets.

TIP! Brick, stone or untreated wood is great for building raised beds. For best results, you should only use wood that has not been treated with chemicals or protective coating.

You need to avoid chores in your organic garden stacking up. If you’re too busy to do all those little things each day, there are some small steps you can take to not have all that work build up on you. For example, snatch out a weed or two whenever you pass by the garden, such as when you take your dog out for a potty break.

Laundry Basket

TIP! Use mulch to enhance the health of your soil. A layer of mulch can protect the soil beneath.

When you want to harvest the produce in your organic garden, always have an old laundry basket to hand. Most laundry baskets are designed with a multitude of holes. This makes them a perfect strainer for washing your vegetables. The produce can be rinsed off as it sits in the laundry basket, and extra water will drain out through the sides.

TIP! Biodiversity is a key element of your organic garden. Increasing your plant variety will draw further variety in the wildlife around.

Clearly, organic horticulture is a more voluminous subject than is commonly known. Your hard work will pay off once your garden grows and you can eat healthy vegetables. By using the tips and techniques found here, you can have a healthy, productive garden in no time.
