There are endless all-natural methods available to help you produce a vibrant organic garden. Just learn some techniques, and put the ones that resonate with you into practice.

TIP! A certain amount of CO2 is necessary for plants to maximize their growth potential. Most plants will grow better with more CO2.

Using a shovel in clay soil is a lot of work, not only is the clay hard, but it will stick to the shovel and make it twice as hard to handle. Coat and buff the digging end of the shovel with automobile wax to make digging easier. This will make your task easier because the clay won’t stick to the shovel. It will also keep your garden tool from rusting.

TIP! Be sure to do some weeding on a regular basis. Weeds can turn a beautiful garden into an eyesore.

If you start to notice some powdery mildew growing on your plants, there is no need to waste money on expensive chemicals. Rather, you should mix a bit of baking soda with a small quantity of liquid soap in water. Once every week, you should spray the mixture on your plants; the mildew will disappear shortly thereafter. This solution is perfectly safe for your plants and gently treats mildew in a short amount of time.

TIP! Seeds should be soaked in a dark area overnight. Drop some seeds into a small glass or other container, and fill it with water.

Use climbers to cover walls and fences. Plants that climb are extraordinarily versatile, and can help hide an unsightly wall or fence, usually within one season. 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 may need to be attached to a support, and others will attach themselves to any surface using their twining stems or tendrils. Reliable varieties include wisteria, honeysuckle, climbing roses, clematis, and jasmine.

TIP! If you have planted vegetables within your garden, make sure that they are getting at least six hours of sunlight each day. Most vegetables need this amount of sunlight to grow the right way at a faster pace.

When gardening, be sure to look closely for stink bug infestation, especially during Autumn. These destructive pests enjoy many kinds of fruit, as well as beans, peppers and tomatoes. If you do not check, they do a lot of damage to plants so try to get rid of them if you can.

TIP! For an unusual, but effective, organic solution to weeding young plants, try “boiling” the weeds away. Water is cheaper than chemical herbicides, and less hazardous to humans and soil.

Do not cut your grass too short. When the grass is a little longer, the roots will be stronger and the lawn becomes more resistant. Short grass is more prone to getting dried out and turning brown.

TIP! Do you enjoy fresh mint leaves though hate how they grow so fast and take over your entire garden? Rein their growth; you can do this simply by planting mint inside a larger garden container or pot. If you prefer, you can even place the container in the ground, but the pot’s walls will prevent the mint from spreading and being a nuisance in your garden.

As the weather turns colder, it is important to prepare your sensitive shrubs for the change. Cold weather is very hard on these tender shrubs, and potted shrubs should be shielded and protected. Tie the tops together, and loosely cover the wigwam with a blanket or sheet. Covering your foliage in plastic will let the air in – and may lead to decay.

TIP! Make sure that you divide your irises! You can create additional irises by splitting up irises that are growing into each other’s space. Pick up bulbous irises after the foliage dies.

Many people delight in the taste of fresh mint leaves, but become frustrated when the plant spreads wildly. You should plant the mint in a rather large garden container or pot instead so you can monitor growth. You can then plant the container down in the ground if you like, but the walls of the container will hold the roots captive, and keep the plant from taking over your garden!

TIP! Try placing evergreens that grow berries around your garden. These plants will look good year-round, even during the winter, when your other plants have lost their bloom.

Always fertilize your garden. Manure is a great garden additive, but it is important that you choose a manure that has been composted commercially so that there is less of a risk of pathogens. There are a number of options for fertilizer, but the truth is that what you use is unimportant; you just have to remember to use something.

TIP! Your children can help you with your garden. A garden can teach your children about the joy of rewarding work and nutrition while bonding.

Think about berry-producing trees that are green year round for your garden. This will keep your garden colorful, even during those months when other plants are not growing. Some plants provide color during the winter like the Winterberry, and American Holly, the American Cranberrybush and the Common Snowberry.

TIP! You should protect the knees if you are kneeling in the garden. Bending over from a standing position is something many people cannot do.
