TIP! Try not to cause shock to your plants by gradually changing their conditions and temperature. At first, only leave them outside for a brief period of time.

There are many people who’d like to have their own organic garden, but not many take the time to actually create one. This is because people often feel too discouraged or incompetent to try something that sounds as complicated and unusual as organic horticulture. Read on to find many tips which will help you to create your own organic garden quickly and easily.

TIP! Turn your tool handles into convenient rulers. You can convert any large handle tool, such as a hoe, shovel, or rake into a measuring tool.

Use perennials resistant to slugs and snails. Snails and slugs can destroy plants in just one night. Young plants with susceptible leaves are favorite meals for slugs, including those with smoother or thinner leaves. There are some perennials that do not appeal to slugs, such as those with leaves that are hairy and tough with a bad taste. Some of examples of these are achillea, heuchera, campanula, helleborus, and euphorbia.

TIP! If you have a wall or fence that you do not like, plant climbers to mask its appearance. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season.

You may be able to re-pot some plants to bring indoors for the winter. Perhaps save the most resistant or expensive plants. Carefully loosen the dirt around the roots, then transfer the plant into a pot filled with the same soil.

TIP! Keep an eye open for stink bugs in your garden, especially during the fall months. Stink bugs enjoy gardens, and are especially fond of fruit, tomatoes, beans and peppers.

Don’t cut your grass down by the soil when you run the mower. By leaving your grass a little taller, you are allowing it to become stronger, as the roots grow stronger and deeper. Short grass means short roots and dead grass.

TIP! Grow wheat or cat grass around the plants your cat likes nibbling. Another option is to place something smelly, like citrus peels or mothballs, on the soil surrounding the plants that have previously been eaten.

Balance your alkaline soil with the acid found in used coffee grounds. This affordable trick will give back the acid that your dirt requires. When you use them, you will start to notice that your vegetables are tastier and more vibrant in color.

TIP! Consider planting evergreens that produce berries in your yard. These plants will look good year-round, even during the winter, when your other plants have lost their bloom.

Before you plant a garden you should plan it out. It will be a while before things start to sprout and visually remind you of what was planted where, so a written record can be helpful. A good plan can also help you to place each plant in the area that is most beneficial to them.

TIP! Pest control can be very difficult when dealing with a vegetable garden. The vegetables are intended to be eaten, thus you should refrain from using harsh pesticides and chemicals.

Be vigilant about keeping moisture off your plants. Moisture on the surfaces of your plants is an invitation to pests and illness. A fungus is one of the most important and debilitating parasites for plants. Fungicide sprays can deal with fungal infestations, but they are most effective if you apply them before a fungus problem becomes noticeable.

TIP! The nutrients from vegetables can help. If you steam your vegetables, you can pour the remaining water around them.

Do you like mint, but not how they ruin your garden? Control their expansion by confining them to a large pot. You can plant the container into the soil if you want to, but the container will restrict the roots, and make sure that the plant doesn’t run rampant in your garden.

TIP! Use only pesticides designed to kill the specific type of pest in your garden, and avoid the broad-spectrum kind. Besides killing the insects you don’t want, this type of pesticide will also kill beneficial insects.

Instead of leaving clumps of irises intact, divide them so that your flowers can grow in a more healthy manner. You can create additional irises by splitting up irises that are growing into each other’s space. When the foliage has died off, it is time to harvest the iris bulbs. The bulbs, when harvested, should easily split by hand – allowing you to replant them for even more blooms next spring. Divide up the rhizomes with a knife. Cut several new pieces out of the outside and get rid of the old center. Each piece must have a minimum of one strong offshoot. Set your cuttings into the ground right away.

TIP! To defend your garden from errant dogs, spray something with a strong scent, including aftershave or old perfume around the perimeter of the garden. This will mask the garden smell that is attracting your dog, and it will make it a less appealing place for your dog to visit.

A quality garden must be grown from seeds. When opening a garden, the most green method of beginning is from seed. Plastics from nurseries aren’t recycled often, which causes them to go into landfills; so try starting with seeds, or buying from organic nurseries.
