Asprin will actually help your plants out by killing diseases. Try dissolving around one and one half aspirins into around 2 gallons of water for your plants. Spray this mixture onto your plants. Try to apply the mixture to the plants at least once in each three week period.
One way to help your organic garden thrive is to leave an undeveloped area that is conducive to the wildlife around your area. Most likely, you will find your organic garden producing better once your property is home to the insects, birds, and other wildlife that plants rely on for pollination and the production and dispersal of seeds.
Indoor plants have been bred over time to thrive in temperatures that are characteristic of a home. Most indoor plants like to be in about 70 degree temperatures, plus or minus 5 degrees. They need the temperature to be that warm so that they can grow. These temperatures may not be comfortable for you, however. As an alternative to keeping your entire home that warm, consider getting heat lamps for your organic plants.
Seeds that have sprouted don’t require the extra warmth that was needed before they sprouted. As your plants grow, you will want to put a little distance between them and heat. If you have plastic films on your containers, remove them. You need to read the seeds to know the best time to do this.
Use approximately two or three inches of natural, organic material as some mulch in every single flower bed. This will discourage weeds from growing, add nutrients, and retain the moisture in your garden. It also adds a uniform and cohesive look to the garden.
Your compost pile should contain green plant materials and dry plant materials. Your green material can be made up of produce waste, used floral arrangements, lawn cuttings, leaves, and other yard waste. Paper and straw are dry plant materials. Charcoal, meat, ashes or other diseased plants should not be included in a compost pile.
Do you want to kill weeds in a natural way? Try using several newspaper layers to control weeds. Weeds can’t grow without sunlight. The newspaper will block sunlight and weeds won’t be able to grow. In time, the newspaper will decompose into the soil. Add visual appeal by placing some mulch over the top.
