TIP! In order not to shock your plants, you have to gradually accustom them to the change of temperature and conditions. On the first day, put them out in sunlight for about an hour or so.

There are many factors involved to achieve the lush and beautiful garden you have always wanted. While having a garden is a ton of work, it is also a very rewarding experience. Following are a few tips that can make your horticulture time more fun and less work.

TIP! Your tool handles can double as measuring sticks. Larger handled tools like rakes, hoes, and shovels make great measuring sticks.

Plant perennials that are resistant to slug and snail infestations. Snails and slugs are garden nightmares, and only need a single evening to obliterate a plant. They tend to enjoy perennials that have thin, smooth, tender leaves, especially those of young plants. There are, however, certain types of perennials that slugs and snails hate. Most of these varieties either have tough leaves or taste unappealing. Some varieties of these plants are campanula, helleborus, heuchera, or euphorbia.

TIP! When winter comes around, save some plants by putting them in the house. It’s a good idea to save any expensive plants or those that will thrive in indoor heat.

Vegetables should be placed in a spot in your garden that will get about six hours of sun every day. Many of the vegetables need a lot of sun, so they can grow right and at a faster pace. Some flowers are especially sun-loving as well.

TIP! The kind of soil you use will influence the results. Different types of plants require different soils, so check soil requirements for the ones you choose.

Make sure that you divide your irises! Splitting up overgrown groups of irises will allow you to easily increase the number of irises in your garden. Lift bulbous irises when the foliage is dead. You will be able to split the bulb easily and replant it to get more flowers next year. Divide rhizomes with a knife. New pieces should be cut from the outside, then the old center you want to discard. Divide your pieces carefully; they should each have one good quality offshoot apiece. Immediately replant all your selected cuttings.

TIP! Shelter your deciduous shrubs. Shrubs that are planted in containers are especially susceptible to frost and must be carefully protected.

The warmth of the day can make vegetables soft, making them more prone to damage as you pick them. See to it that you cut their connection to the vine as opposed to twisting them, because twisting could hurt the plant.

TIP! Your plants should always be kept in an aerated, dry area. Excess moisture on a plant will invite unwanted parasites or diseases to the plant.

If you are looking at creating an endurable organic garden, you should think about keeping some of your property vacant so that wildlife may flourish there. Your cultivated garden spaces will benefit from the various insects and wildlife that will inhabit and pollinate the undeveloped space.

TIP! A good green garden should start from seeds and not plants. When you grow a new garden, start the environmental way, from seeds.

It is important to allow cuts to completely heal before you do any gardening in order to protect the cut from exposure to dirt or chemicals. A cut or abrasion can become infected if it is not properly protected from dirt, pesticides and other irritants. These days, bandages are available that can totally seal the cut.

Laundry Basket

TIP! Purchase an inexpensive gardening kneeling pad, as well as a wheelbarrow or wagon. It is important to protect your knees when you are kneeling in the garden, and a foam kneeling pad will help with that.

You can use something like a laundry basket to gather all of your produce together when the time comes. The basket strains the produce as well as stores it while you are going through your garden. Rinse your crops while in the laundry basket to strain the excess water.

TIP! During the hotter parts of the day, vegetables are softer, which means even picking them gently can cause them damage. Also ensure that you use a tool to cut the vegetables off at the vine.

If you want to sell your crops as organic, you should look into obtaining a certification proving that you are an organic garden. This should boost your sales while proving to your customers that they are getting healthy products.

TIP! Planting organic strawberries is a great way to encourage your children to get involved. You will find that they enjoy participating in gardening if they are allowed to pluck the fresh berries and eat them straight from the earth.

Have you ever given any thought to using organic gardening methods to grow garlic? Plant garlic cloves individually. Do this in early spring or during the fall in moist and well drained soils. Plant the cloves one to two inches beneath the soil about four inches apart and with the pointed end up. Green garlic shoots can be cut as they grow, and used in place of chives or scallions. When the tops of the bulbs begin turning brown, they are ready for harvesting. Dry the bulbs well in the sun for several days to harden the skin. They can be stored in a cool area, either loose or tied in bunches.

TIP! One way to create a great organic garden is to allow for a portion of your yard to be undeveloped for wildlife. The kind of birds and insects needed for pollination will be naturally present on your property and help with your organic garden.

With these tips, you’re better equipped to grow the most beautiful garden you can imagine. In learning how to create your dream garden, you’ll also be growing as a person. That’s because learning how to nurture your plants will not only help you reach the goal of having a great garden, but it will help you learn to nurture yourself.
