As far as gardening goes, caring for your organic garden is important. However, it is possible to be smart about your organic gardening. By employing your knowledge you will be able to more efficiently and reliably produce healthy, tasty food. Use this advice to take your organic garden to the next level.
Do not improperly lay your new sod. Before the sod can be laid, you should prepare the soil. Remove weeds and break your soil until all the clumps are gone. Next, you want to make the soil compacted by applying light but firm pressure. Make sure the soil creates a flat surface. Thoroughly water the soil. Avoid laying your sod in straight rows with all of the seams lining up. Instead, stagger the rows for a more pleasing visual effect. Even out the surface of the sod by firming it down flat, filling any available gaps with a handful of dirt. After two weeks of daily watering, the sod should be rooted; at this time, it is now safe to walk on it.
Choose higher yield plant varieties. It is quite common to find that hybrids, which are often able to resist disease and withstand cold climates, produce yields much larger than their conventional counterparts.
Try using climber plants to cover up your fences and walls. They can be used to cover up unsightly fences or walls. Often, they can grow enough to cover up an eyesore in one season. They can cover an arbor, or grow through trees and shrubs. Sometimes the plants will require being tied to supports, but some climbers will attach themselves naturally. Climbing roses, honeysuckle, wisteria, clematis, and jasmine are some great plants to try out.
When winter comes around, save some plants by putting them in the house. Perhaps you can save your most expensive or resistant plants. Carefully dig near the roots and transfer those plants into a flower pot.
If you want your garden full of flowers spring through summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs are usually very hearty and very easy to grow, and bulbs will grow year after year. Remember that different bulbs will bloom at all different times of the year, so if you are careful to choose the right bulbs, you will see blooms in the early spring, and have flowers all the way to late summer.
Organic gardening makes a huge difference in the taste and freshness of your produce. It takes tons of patience and work, but it’s worth it for a great garden.
