Organic gardening can either be a major headache, or a very relaxing hobby. Here are some suggestions to get you on the right path to successful organic gardening.
When the fall season arrives, it is time to plant your fall edibles. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots. Use some Wilt-Pruf to prevent your pumpkin from decomposing and then you can put your plants right inside. After that, your pumpkin planter is ready to use!
Prior to planting your garden, devise a plan. Doing this makes it easier to keep track of where you planted what when you first start to see sprouts. This can also help prevent you from losing smaller plants or smaller groups of plants within a larger garden area.
If you want to effectively weed out young plants, you can try “boiling” away the weeds. Boiling water is a safe herbicide which won’t damage your garden or your body. Pour hot water right on the weeds, but do not get any on your plants. Weeds will usually stop growing if boiling water damages their roots.
Do you hate how fresh mint leaves grow and take over your lovely garden but still like them? Keep the growth under control by growing them in a large gardening pot instead. The container will keep the roots from spreading throughout you garden, and prevent the mint leaves from sprouting in other areas.
If you are going for a British feel with your garden, then vary the heights of your plants. If you want a more organized look, select plants that will grow to the same height and put them in the same bed.
Get your children interested in helping with your organic garden. The benefits for your children will be a closer bond with nature and an understanding of where food comes from.
If you are looking at creating an endurable organic garden, you should think about keeping some of your property vacant so that wildlife may flourish there.
