Successful organic horticulture requires the use of some particular methods and techniques. You just need to learn them and use them.

TIP! It is important to choose the right type of soil if you want to achieve the best results. The soil may have to be adapted, depending on what types of plants you’re planning for the garden.

Shoveling soil that is mostly clay can be difficult because of the hardness of the soil, and because it sticks to the shovel. Try applying a coat of wax onto your spade prior to working with clay soil, and then buff the spade head with a cloth. The wax will enable the clay soil to simply slide off the shovel, and will also prevent the shovel from rusting.

TIP! When you are mowing your lawn do not cut it too closely to the dirt. Keeping grass with a little more height makes it healthier.

You may be able to re-pot some plants to bring indoors for the winter. This is especially useful if you have a particular plant that you love or was expensive. Carefully dig around the rootball and replant in an appropriate pot.

TIP! If you find yourself in love with mint leaves, but not with how they dominate a garden, read on. You can control their growth by placing them into a pot or container.

If beautiful flowers throughout the warmer months are important to you, make sure you put bulbs into the ground. Bulbs are usually very hearty and very easy to grow, and bulbs will grow year after year. You can select bulbs that bloom at many different times, so with a little work, you could have flowers popping up all the way from the start of spring to the end of summer.

TIP! Be sure to split the irises. You can increase your stock of irises by dividing up overgrown clumps.

Ensure that your plants are kept dry, and aerated daily. Damp leaves can lead to plant disease and parasites. Fungi are a very common and irritating pest in the world of horticulture. Although fungi can be treated with sprays, it is possible to preempt the problem and very important to plant health that you do so.

TIP! You should be cognizant of the peak time for harvesting your vegetables. Each kind of vegetable should be picked at a specific point for maximum flavor.

Divide your irises. If you divide the overgrown clumps of flowers, you’ll find that your stock grows proportionally. Lift the dead bulbous irises. These bulbs will divide into several parts naturally when you pick them up. You can then replant them, and watch them flower the following year. Split rhizomes with a knife. Cut new outside pieces and dispose of the center. If done properly, each piece that remains for planting should have a minimum of one viable offshoot. For optimum viability, plant your new cuttings into the ground without delay.

TIP! While you garden, it’s important that you wear the right clothing to protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Wear sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, and sunblock.

A good fertilizer is important to add nutrients to your soil. Manure is very effective in helping plants grow, although it is important to use a commercially composted product to minimize the risk of pathogens. Choosing a specific type of fertilizer is not particularly critical; as long as you’re using fertilizer, you’re improving your soil.

TIP! You can create a great English garden by mixing types and sizes in one bed. Plants that grow to be the same height end up uniform and flat looking.

You can use natural materials or other plants in your garden to keep away pests. Onions and marigolds can get rid of pests in the garden. Insects also avoid shrubs and trees that are mulched with wood ash. With these natural methods, there is no need to purchase expensive, harsh pesticides.

TIP! Asprin will actually help your plants out by killing diseases. Crush and dissolve one and one-half 325mg tablets in two full gallons of plain water.

Place organic mulch as close to your vegetables as you can. Mulching helps keep moisture in the soil. It also prevents weed growth. This can save you a lot of time and effort in pulling out the weeds.

TIP! Have all of your tools available to you as you garden to increase efficiency. You have several options including using a bucket to hold your tools or wearing pants with lots of sturdy pockets.

If you have an organic garden and children, plant some everbearing strawberries for them. Children are thrilled to harvest fruit from their own garden, and doing so often makes them more enthusiastic about helping out with the more hum-drum aspects of tending a garden.

TIP! Use about two to three inches of organic material as mulch in all of your flower beds. This fights weeds, retains moisture, and gives your garden valuable nutrients.

Be efficient when working in your garden. Do not waste your time looking for tools. Before you start work in the garden, make sure you have the necessary tools, and always remember to put them away when you are finished. You may also wish to invest in a tool belt to keep all of your tools within reach while horticulture.

TIP! When composting lawn clippings, leaves, and other materials, it is best to add the same amount of green, freshly-cut material as you do dried material. When you pull weeds from your garden, throw them in the compost.

Just about anyone who wants to plant a garden can plant one, but only those who truly understand what it takes will be successful. Make sure to use these organic tips.
