TIP! There are home solutions available to combat the powdery mildew you may find on your plants. Try mixing a little liquid soap with some baking soda in water.

Planting an organic garden gives you easy access to a source of healthy food, but buying what you need and getting it set up can be tough for a first-timer. You also have a large variety of seeds you can choose from as well. The tips below will help you get started in growing an organic garden.

TIP! The kind of soil you use will influence the results. You should choose your soil depending on the plants that you are going to plant.

The quick and drastic change in the weather conditions can shock your plants and cause them to die. It’s important that you gradually change temperate conditions over time, so that your plants can adjust. Place them outdoors in the sun for about an hour or two on the first day. Slowly, day after day, you can leave your plants outside for a little longer. By weeks end, you should have plants that are ready for a permanent home outside with no problem!

Choose the varieties of plants that will produce a higher yield. If yield is important, choose hybrids designed to resist cold and diseases rather than traditional varieties.

TIP! Are fresh mint leaves something you love but cannot stand how quickly they grow all over your garden? Keep your mint growth under control by planting them in pots and/or garden containers. You can bury the container so the top is flush with the ground if desired, but the container’s walls will prevent the roots from spreading so that the plant won’t take over your entire garden.

Think about starting plants in pots, and then placing the seedlings in the garden later. This can give your seedlings the advantage they need to survive and reach adulthood. You will then be able to lessen the time between planting your seeds. Using this method, you can remove the mature plants, then put the seedlings in their places.

Baking Soda

TIP! Plan your garden to provide some fall color. It’s not necessary to think this way, however.

If your plants have a powdery mildew, don’t use expensive chemicals on them. Mix plain baking soda with a small bit of liquid soap and water. Spray this on your plants once a week until the mildew disappears. Baking soda treats the mildew effectively and gently and it won’t damage your plants.

TIP! Make sure that you wear appropriate clothing when you garden so as to avoid any sun damage. Wear sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, and sunblock.

When winter arrives, you could save some plants by placing them inside your house. It’s a good idea to save any expensive plants or those that will thrive in indoor heat. Carefully dig up the plants, using caution not to disturb the roots, then transfer into a pot.

TIP! When your seeds sprout, they will not be in need of the warmth they needed to germinate. Your seedlings should be moved away from any heat source.

Plants need a sufficient amount of CO2 for proper maximum growth. In general, higher amounts of CO2 are related to better plant growth. The best way to expose your plants to a high level of carbon dioxide is by growing them in a greenhouse. When it is exposed to high carbon dioxide levels, a plant has the best growing condition possible.

TIP! Put an organic material, such as mulch two or three inches deep, in your flower beds. This practice is an easy way to discourage weeds, retain moisture, and add valuable nutrients to your garden.

If you want your garden full of flowers spring through summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs are hearty and will continue to grow every year. Different bulbs will bloom during different time periods. Therefore, if you select your bulbs correctly, you could have blooms in your garden for all of spring and summer.

Knee Pads

TIP! For container planting, be sure to plant your seeds at a depth around three times the radius of the seed. There are exceptions, however.

To save your knees from the wear and tear of horticulture, invest in some knee pads if your garden includes a lot of low-growth plants. If you spend a large portion of your horticulture session on your knees, it could create pain over time. A set of quality knee pads designed for gardening can be a world of relief for your central leg joints.

TIP! Use alcohol to help control the slugs in your garden by fashioning a beer trap. Start by burying a wide-mouth jar in the soil, ensuring that the rim of the jar is just at the soil’s surface.

Your plants should always be kept in an aerated, dry area. Many diseases, as well as most parasites, prefer moisture. In fact, fungi love a wet plant and can cause a great deal of damage. Sprays and liquids exist that are perfect for killing the fungi, but be sure you use it on the area before the fungi actually appear.

TIP! Build raised beds with untreated stone, brick or wood. Be sure that any wood you use isn’t chemically treated, and will be able to resist rot naturally.
