TIP! Properly put down your sod. Be sure to get your soil prepared before you start laying the new sod.

Tending to an organic garden can be a highly rewarding and calming activity that anyone can participate in. Gardening can be overwhelming for a beginner. How can you become a better organic gardener? All you have to do is read the following suggestions.

TIP! Try planting your plants in flower pots first, then transferring them to your garden once they have had a bit of time to grow. Doing this will increase the survival rate of all your outdoor plants.

Turn your tool handles into convenient rulers. Tools with long handles, such as rakes, hoes, and shovels can be converted into handy measuring sticks. Lay the tools down on the floor, then place a measuring tape along the handle. Label the distances with a permanent marker. When you are gardening next, you’ll have a ruler beside you at all times.

TIP! One way to correct your soil’s alkalinity is by amending your soil with used coffee grounds. This is an easy and inexpensive solution to increase the acid content back into the soil.

Whenever you are planting a veggie garden, it is vital that you place them in a location where sun shines down on them for six or more hours per day. This allows the vegetables to grow quickly and healthily. This is also true for some flowers.

TIP! Instead of leaving clumps of irises intact, divide them so that your flowers can grow in a more healthy manner. Increase your iris stocks by dividing your overgrown clumps.

Try to ensure your plants are dry and have enough air, daily! Moisture can be a magnet for disease and parasites on your plants. Fungi is a common problem in the world of plants. It is possible to get rid of fungi after it appears with anti-fungal sprays, but it’s better to spray at-risk areas before fungi appear.

TIP! The best gardens from an environmental standpoint originate from seeds, instead of plants. When planting a garden, the best way is to initially start with seeds.

Divide your irises. You can divide those overgrown clumps and increase the amount of irises you have. Pick up bulbous irises after the foliage dies. The bulbs split in your hand, then you replant them, and they will most likely flower next year. Rhizomes may need to be divided by using a knife. Cut the center out of each rhizome but save the pieces. Each new piece you cut should possess at least one healthy offshoot. The quicker you can replant your cuttings, the better chances they will reappear next season.

TIP! Protect the soil around your vegetable plants with an inch or two of organic mulch. When you place mulch around your plants, it keeps the ground more moist.

If you decide to grow peas, think about planting them indoors when you first start them off, as opposed to planting them outdoors. When the plants are started inside, the seeds will have an easier time germinating. This method also results in hardier seedlings that can better resist insects and disease. After the seedlings get mature enough, transplant them to your outdoor garden.

TIP! When you boil vegetables, use the leftover water on your potted plants. For gardenias and rhododendrons, try putting your used coffee grounds or tea bags in the soil so they may acquire the acid they need for proper growth.

Take the time to place organic mulch in the area around your vegetable plants. The mulch will add beneficial moisture to your soil. It can also prevent weeds from growing. You will benefit by not having to spend so much time fighting weed growth.

TIP! Keep your garden free from broad-spectrum pesticides. In addition, these pesticides destroy the good insects which eat pests.

Make sure to water your garden properly. You can save time by using soaker hoses to water more than one plant. Keeping the water pressure low on your soaking hose will help avoid harm to tender plants. Let it water the plants for a while as you do other things.

TIP! Water your garden wisely. Take advantage of a soaker hose so that you don’t need to water every single plant individually, or have to keep filling up your watering can.

To keep your dog out of your garden, spray old perfume, aftershave, or other scented items in the grass around it. Doing so shields the scents that your dog might pick up on and be drawn to, causing their potential interest in your garden to drop dramatically.

TIP! Once your seeds start sprouting, they do not need as much warmth as they needed before. Locate your plants further from your heat source as they mature.

If you want to draw advantageous insects to your garden, plant some heather. Heather is great for getting bees to stop by at the beginning of spring, as heather plants have nectar available early in the season. Heather beds are typically left untouched, which is why helpful little critters like ground beetles and spiders call them home. Keep this in mind and remember to always wear appropriate gardening gloves.

TIP! The space you leave in between your plants is an important measurement when it comes to gardening. Amateur gardeners often make the mistake of failing to leave enough space for fully matured plants.

You should now realize how much fun and how enjoyable horticulture can be. It is very relaxing and fun to work in a beautiful garden. With these tips in mind, you can start growing like a pro!
