Water containing some aspirin helps your plants fight illness. One and a half aspirin, dissolved in two gallons of water, can be a great addition to your plants. Spray this mixture onto your plants. Use this solution once in every three-week period.
To be most efficient in your gardening, always keep your tools close at hand. For example, you could use an over-sized tote bag or an apron with multiple pockets. Have shears, a trowel, gloves and other commonly used garden tools portable and easy to access.
Organize your gardening so that you can work efficiently. It’s frustrating to search for a tool for a half hour. By keeping your tools in a certain area, they will always be ready whenever you are. If you use lots of tools, consider using a tool belt or even just some pants that have lots of pockets.
Believe it or not, pine makes great mulch. Some plants have a naturally high acidic level, and therefore like acidic soil. For such plants, pine needles function both as a handy mulch and as a soil amendment to lower the pH. Go ahead and cover the beds you have with needles a couple of inches and while they decompose, they actually disperse some acid into the soil.
Coffee grounds are good for your soil. Coffee grounds are filled with nitrogen, that is a nutrient required by plants. It is best for your plants to use coffee grounds that are part of a blend of ingredients in the compost or soil you are using for your plants, rather than directly adding coffee grounds to your garden plants.
Spacing is essential when planting an organic garden. Many people don’t realize exactly how much space a plant needs when it grows.

As illustrated above, there is more to becoming a successful organic gardener than most people first imagine. While it takes quite a bit of effort and lots of patience, your pay off in the end will be a fantastic organic garden. Use this information and you will be in great shape for bettering yourself in terms of organic gardening knowledge.
