You want to have a fresh and organic garden. You have certainly come to the right place! There are insights here that will aid greatly in your quest to establish that perfect organic garden for your family.
The quick and drastic change in the weather conditions can shock your plants and cause them to die. It’s important that you gradually change temperate conditions over time, so that your plants can adjust. On the first day, place them in the sun outside for only an hour or so. As the week progresses, gradually increase their exposure to the outdoors. After a few more days, your plants will be more resistant and ready to stay outside all the time.
Turn your tool handles into convenient rulers. Handles of things such as rakes, hoes or shovels make excellent measuring instruments. After laying the handles on the floor, run the measuring tape along beside them. Label the distances on the handle with a marker pen that will not smear or fade away. When the need arises to measure something while in your garden, the measuring tool you need will literally be “on hand,” sketched into the handles of your tools.
A garden with a foundation of healthy soil is the best defense against pests. Healthy and well-nourished plants will be hardier and therefore better able to prevent pests from taking hold. High-quality soil that is low on chemicals is key. It’s the first thing you should think about when planning on growing your garden.
When powdery mildew appears on your plants, you should not rush out to purchase a costly chemical treatment. All you need to do is mix baking soda with a tiny bit of liquid soap in with some water. Spray this on the plants once per week until that mildew goes away. Do not worry about your plants; the baking soda cannot harm them.
For proper optimum growth, plants require sufficient amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). The majority of plants thrive when they are exposed to a high level of carbon dioxide. The best way to get a high level is to plant them in a greenhouse. In this environment, the CO2 levels are kept high so the plants can experience optimal growing conditions.
If you have a vegetable garden, it is crucial they are kept in a spot with at least six hours of sun each day. This allows the vegetables to grow quickly and healthily. Some flowers also require direct sunlight for a portion of each day.
You should now feel better about your organic gardening knowledge. With the knowledge you have, you should be ready for anything! The above tips should help you begin growing an organic garden that is beautiful and healthy.
