You are committed to the idea of planting a garden that works well with the environment. Well your timing could not be more perfect! The following tips and tricks will help prepare you for organic gardening success.
You can help your plants resist disease by spraying them with aspirin water. An aspirin and a half, dissolved in about two gallons of fresh water, is great for your plants. Next, coat the plant with the aspirin mixture by spraying it on the leaves. Plants should be sprayed once every two to three weeks.
Just as when outside, plants kept inside need varying degrees of sunlight, which can be harder to obtain from indoors. If you are living in a place that does not have a lot of natural sunlight, think about cultivating plants that do well in lower lighting situations. Using UV lamps is a great way to grow an organic garden anywhere.
In order to maximize the efficiency of your gardening, ensure your gardening tools are kept close by you. Use a bucket large enough to hold all your equipment or wear pants with multiple pockets. Keep your gloves, pruning shears, a hand spade and your other tools handy to quickly and easily do your garden maintenance.
Coat your flower beds with a few inches of an organic mulch. Doing this keeps weeds down, keeps the moisture in your plants, and gives more nutrients to the plants. A layer of mulch also creates a more attractive appearance.
You should work efficiently, instead of working hard in your garden, to simplify things. Don’t spend 30 minutes searching for a tool. By keeping your tools in a certain area, they will always be ready whenever you are. You may also wish to invest in a tool belt to keep all of your tools within reach while gardening.
It never hurts to keep a few bags around the house to protect your floors from dirty gardening shoes. This helps the flow keep going so that you can get into the garden quickly to finish what you’re doing.
It is common knowledge that grounds from brewed coffee are good for soil. They contain nitrogenous nutrients which are essential to plant growth. A strong nitrogen source in your garden area is a wonderful way to have healthy and strong plants.
Tend your organic garden on a regular schedule. Even if you’re to busy to focus on your garden’s needs each day, you could do small things that could prevent you from piling up work when you wish to work on your garden. If you put the dog outside, weed a few spots in the garden while your dog goes to the bathroom.
You should now have the basic knowledge you need to start an organic garden. If you were under the impression you were good at organic gardening before, you should now feel like an expert! Hopefully, the advice you have learned will give you the knowledge and confidence you need to produce a beautiful and beneficial organic garden.
