Properly applying different techniques for organic gardening pays off in the long run. Being motivated to take care of your garden and wanting to put some time and efforts in it is a great thing. This is an admirable goal! However, you can always find new things to learn about, and improve your skills. Below are some tips to help.
Cover the fences and walls with climbers. Known commonly as climbers, these plants are very versatile, easy to grow, and they will quickly spread out to cover up walls and fences within a single season. They may also grow through tress and shrubs that are already grown, or you can train them to cover your arbor. Some varieties of these plants will have to be tethered to some sort of support, but other varieties will be able to attach to the medium they are climbing. A few good choices are climbing roses, wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle and clematis.
Use proper soil for the best results. Depending on what type of plants you have, your soil may or may not be adapted. You could also isolate a certain area, and fill it with just one kind of soil.
Set your mower blades higher, so you don’t cut the grass too short. If you leave a bit more height, the grass roots will get deeper, making your lawn stronger. If you have short grass, you will have short roots and you will dry out your grass.
Make sure you protect any tender deciduous shrubs. If you have some tender shrubs that are in planters, you need to protect them from cold weather. Tie the tops together, and loosely cover the wigwam with a blanket or sheet. Covering your foliage in plastic will let the air in – and may lead to decay.
For weeds that aren’t in the middle of your plants, use boiling water to kill their roots. A pot of very hot water is one of the most effective ways you can get rid of the weeds in your garden. Pour hot water right on the weeds, but do not get any on your plants. This can cause enough damage to the roots of any plant to kill it.
Now you know more about organic gardening. You are ready to start your own garden. These tips were specifically crafted to enhance your organic gardening techniques. A gardener should never be done learning! You may have even found something new to employ in your own organic garden.
