Gather some ideas for planning your garden, whether it will be for home or commercial use. You can have a good idea on what you need, this way you aren’t spending money on equipment you do not need, or on seeds that will not work in your environment.

Clay Soil

TIP! A good but unusual organic solution for weeding your plants is try “boiling” your weeds way. Boiling water in a pot is a safe “herbicide.

Digging in hard clay soil is made even more difficult because it sticks to the shovel. To make working in clay easier, rub the shovel with floor or car wax and then buff it with a cloth. The wax will enable the clay soil to simply slide off the shovel, and will also prevent the shovel from rusting.

Look for the variants of a plant that offer the highest yield. Traditional strains are often out-performed by hybrids that have been bred for cold tolerance or disease resistance.

Baking Soda

TIP! You can attract the insects you need by planting heather. Heather is very attractive to bees, and when bees first emerge in the spring, it is an early source of nectar.

If you have any mildew on the plants, do not go out and buy anything. Plain water with a bit of liquid soap and baking soda will do the trick. Use a spray bottle to apply to your plants weekly until the issue clears up. Baking soda is not harmful to your plants and will take care of the issue as well as any other treatment.

If you’re like many gardeners, autumn means that it’s time to get some delicious fall edibles growing in your garden. Rather than using clay pots or planters for your lettuce and kale, plant them in a pumpkin! Clean out the pumpkin just like you would if you were making a jack o’lantern. Spray Wilt-Pruf inside the pumpkin and along its edges so that the pumpkin won’t rot. Once you’ve done that, you can plant!

TIP! Leave plenty of growing space when you plant your garden. People often underestimate how much space plants will need when once they’re grown.

TIP! Get the most out of what you have, and your property. You can get a great return on investment from landscaping.

You can alleviate this problem by planting grasses that your cat will naturally gravitate towards. Another option is to place something smelly, like citrus peels or mothballs, on the soil surrounding the plants that have previously been eaten.

TIP! Do you want to get rid of weeds in a natural way? A good thick layer of newspaper can be laid down to control weeds. Weeds can only grow in sunlight.

One natural method of weed removal is called “boiling”. Any vessel of boiling water that you can carry safely can be used as an organic herbicide. Just douse the weeds directly with boiling water, taking care to avoid damaging nearby plants. Boiling water kills weeds by destroying their roots. Weeds won’t be able to survive, never mind grow, with damaged weeds.

TIP! When planting seeds in containers, remember that the depth should be at least three times bigger than the seed. However, you should be aware that certain seeds should not be covered at all because they are required to be in the sunlight.

Mint leaves are wonderful, but don’t you despise how quickly they can take over a garden due to rapid growth? You can stunt the growth of mint by planting it inside a container or super-sized bowl. By using a separate containment unit, you are limiting the plant’s ability to spread its roots and subsequently grow like wildfire. You can even plant the entire pot so that it still looks just like another plant in your garden.

TIP! Organic fruits and vegetables grow without being exposed to pesticides and other chemicals. This provides benefits for your family, but you ought to double check for pests.

An excellent garden shouldn’t begin from plants. They should begin from seeds. When you grow a new garden, start the environmental way, from seeds. The plastic used in nurseries often end up in landfills, that is why it is advised to use seeds or purchase from nurseries that make use of organic materials when packaging their plants.

TIP! It is possible to quickly and easily prepare your garden for new perennials. Use a spade to slice beneath the turf and flip it.
