You have the desire to set up an organic garden that is nutritious and fresh. The time to do it is now. The following tips and tricks will help prepare you for organic gardening success.
Bring your young ones into the garden with you so they will learn about organic methods. Gardening helps your children learn about biological processes and serves as a social activity that helps the family grow closer while eating healthier.
Consider planting strawberries, especially ones that are everbearing, for your garden if you have small children. Children love to snap up these sweet juicy fruits for themselves and will be much more willing to eat other foods you’ve planted as well.
If you have plants inside, make sure the thermostat stays between 65 and 75 degrees. This level of heat is required in order for plants to grow. If you think it would not be comfortable to keep your residence that warm in the winter, consider purchasing a heat lamp to use on the plants.
Just as when outside, plants kept inside need varying degrees of sunlight, which can be harder to obtain from indoors. If the garden will receive little sunlight, find plants that can grow in medium or low-light environments. Otherwise, you could simply use your own lights.
It is simple to prepare your garden for perennial flowers. With a garden spade, slice under the dirt then flip it over. Next, spread out wood chips several inches deep. Allow the newly turned soil to sit for two weeks, then plant your perennials.
Make sure you have your gardening tools near you, so you can maximize your gardening efficiency. Carry a large bucket with you or wear pants with a lot of pockets. Have shears, a trowel, gloves and other commonly used garden tools portable and easy to access.
Work efficiently in your garden. By having your tools in one location, you will not spend hours looking for them. Prepare them all ahead of time and have them handy before you need to garden, and then put them back in their place when done. Wear pants with several pockets or use a tool belt.
You should now have the basic knowledge you need to start an organic garden. You are now the expert, even if you didn’t think so before. The different tips and methods you can use are endless, and as long as you can follow and implement the information correctly, you should have no trouble growing a fantastic garden this season.
