TIP! When selecting among several varieties of a plant, choose the ones that will produce the largest yield. There are genetically modified plants that resist cold and/or disease.

You are going to try your hand at organic gardening. What perfect timing! Below are some excellent ideas to help you begin down the road to an exceptional organic garden.

TIP! Plant vines like ivy to cover fences and dividing walls. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season.

Make sure to lay the sod properly. Get your soil ready before you lay your sod. Pull any weeds and break up any clods of soil. When the soil is clean, pack it tightly and create a flat surface. Thoroughly water the soil. Then lay the sod in staggered rows so the joints are offset. Cut away extra sod and save it to fill in gaps you may create later. Water your sod daily for a fortnight, which is enough time for it to root and be able to withstand foot traffic.

TIP! When winter comes around, save some plants by putting them in the house. Maybe you could pick out the most expensive plants or the most hardy ones.

So that you don’t shock your plants, try gradually accustoming them to conditions and temperature. Put them out in the sun for approximately one to two hours on the very first day. Gradually increase the the time they spend outside over a one week period. By the time the week ends, your plants will be ready for their big move and should have no problems!

Clay Soil

TIP! Plan your garden before you plant it. Having a planting plan will help you correctly identify the young plants once they start to sprout.

Trying to shovel through clay soil can be extremely difficult and tiresome. Rub a thin layer of floor or car wax over the surface of the shovel, and then buff the surface using a clean cloth. This will make shoveling in clay soil easier. Not only will the clay slide off the surface, but it will keep the end from rusting.

TIP! Keep your plants dry and aerated daily. Moisture on your plants is a sure way to attract parasites and disease.

Use the correct type of soil for best results. Different types of plants require different soils, so check soil requirements for the ones you choose. It can happen where one artificial area is designated to have just one type of soil.

TIP! If you would love to have access to fresh and healthy mint leaves from your own back yard, but dread the way the plant spreads so quickly, worry not. You can slow down this growth by planting them inside a pot or container! If you would like, go ahead and plant the container and the plant right in the ground to prevent root overtake.

Prepare your seeds by soaking them in a dark environment. Put a few seeds in a small container and fill it near to the top with water. This will allow your seeds to be hydrated and get a head start when growing. The seeds will most likely have a greater chance of maturing and surviving.

TIP! Think about starting your peas indoors rather than planting them directly in the garden. By initially planting them indoors, the seeds tend to germinate better.

Try to grow some wheat or cat grass around your cat’s favorite plants. Alternatively, you can try putting mothballs, citrus peel or anything else with an odor that cats find distasteful in the soil surrounding the plants.

TIP! Think about using evergreens in your yard that produce berries during the year. These help to give your garden nice looking color, even during winter when most vegetation is colorless.

If your garden includes vegetables, make sure you plant them in a location whether they are exposed to sunlight for a minimum of six hours each day. Many of the vegetables need a lot of sun, so they can grow right and at a faster pace. Some flowers have the same requirement for growth.

TIP! Your children will enjoy being involved with your organic gardening endeavors. An organic garden will help your child learn more about plants and insects, and it’s a wonderful bonding time while growing healthy produce.

Protect your delicate shrubs from harsh, wintry elements. Shrubs that are planted in containers are especially susceptible to frost and must be carefully protected. Tie the tops tightly together, and cover the wigwam with a sheet or blanket draped loosely over it. Covering your foliage in plastic will let the air in – and may lead to decay.

TIP! A good tip to help your plants stay healthy and fight diseases is to use aspirin water. An aspirin and a half, combined with a couple of gallons of water, will do amazing things for your plants.

Place a two inch layer of organic mulch at the base of your tall vegetable plants. Mulch helps the soil surrounding the plants remain moister for a longer time. It will also prevent the growth of weeds. This will save you a ton of time and work.

Spectrum Pesticide

TIP! Cover your flower beds with two or three inches of compost or organic mulch. Using this much mulch retards weed growth, locks in moisture, and ensures that your plants are well-nourished.

Broad-spectrum pesticide is not a good garden choice. It’s true these pesticides kill the pests you don’t want, but they also lay waste to the advantageous insects that make those same pests a regular meal. Beneficial bugs are usually several orders more sensitive to the things you spray than the pests you are trying to kill, so you might wind up dropping the good bug populace and open the door to pest population growth. If you respond to the growing pest problem with more broad-spectrum pesticide, you only continue the harmful cycle.

TIP! Use an old laundry basket to bring your fresh produce in from the garden. This will be like a strainer for all your produce.

Now you should have more information about organic gardening. You may have thought you were prepared before, but now you will be a veritable expert! The advice you have received should get you well on your way to growing a lovely and productive organic garden.
