Many people select organic gardening to avoid using pesticides or commercial fertilizers on their garden for fear of long-term damage to their health and the environment. Also, most methods of organic gardening are fairly inexpensive. Here are some suggestions on helping you to become a organic gardening professional.
You will need to properly lay sod. Before you lay the sod, the soil has to be prepared. Take out any weeds, then mix up the soil into a tilth that is fine. Gently compact the soil until it is flattened. Dampen the soil completely. Stagger your sod so that each joint offsets from joints in adjacent rows. Firm sod until there is an even, flat surface; fill in gaps with soil. Keep the sod moist and avoid walking on it until it is well-rooted, usually two to three weeks.
Start your plants in containers before transferring them to the garden. Your plants will be more likely to survive if you do this. This will also allow you to stick to a tighter, cleaner planting schedule. Using this method, you can remove the mature plants, then put the seedlings in their places.
Use climbers to cover walls and fences. Climbing plants are great for hiding hideous fences and walls, and they usually grow within a season. They may grow up through some existing shrubs and trees, and can even be worked to grow around an arbor. There are natural climbers, which use tendrils or stems to wrap around any given surface, while others must be tied with a string or rope. Reliable varieties include wisteria, honeysuckle, climbing roses, clematis, and jasmine.
Plants require a good amount of CO2 in order to grow to their maximum height. A major portion of plants grow their best in an environment with a saturated level of CO2. Getting a greenhouse is the best way to get a higher amount. CO2 levels are best kept high, in order to provide optimal growing conditions for your plants.
Aerate and dry your plants each day. Plant moisture is a big attraction to both parasites and plant diseases. Fungi is a common problem in the world of plants. Fungicidal spray treatments can contain fungi, but spraying prior to problems even developing in the first place is the best way to go about it.
Use the advice here to start your own organic garden. It is an interesting hobby and one that can improve your health. Your foods will taste better and not contain the heavy chemicals of store bought produce. Planting a natural garden also encourages wildlife to enjoy your garden, and this even benefits the plants growing within.
