You want to create a healthy and fresh organic garden. What great timing. These tips will help you start an organic garden.

Clay Soil

TIP! It is important to do your homework so you choose plants that produce higher yields. Frequently, a hybrid that is able to deal with extreme temperatures will bring higher yields than the more traditional variety of a plant.

Clay soil can be very hard to work with, and you will often find that it sticks to the shovel. To make digging clay soil easier, try applying a light coating of wax, either car wax or floor wax, and then buff off and commence digging. The clay will slide off of its surface and it will prevent rust.

Plant a variety of flowers to keep your flower garden colorful and interesting. Annuals and biennials can add excitement and interest to your flower garden every season. Using a variety of flowers allows your flower garden to have a different look each season. They can make a handy, gap-filler between shrubs and perennials located in sunny areas. You should get varieties such as cosmos, petunia, rudbeckia, hollyhock, sunflowers or marigold.

If beautiful flowers throughout the warmer months are important to you, make sure you put bulbs into the ground. Bulbs are hardy, easy to grow into flowers, and will blossom for several years. Various bulbs do not all bloom at the same time, and if you employ this knowledge wisely, your garden can provide freshly blooming flowers for half the year.

TIP! Start your plants in containers, and then transplant the seedlings into the garden later on. Doing this will increase the survival rate of all your outdoor plants.

Always make sure to mow your lawn to the appropriate length, always making sure that the cut is not too close. If you leave a bit more height, the grass roots will get deeper, making your lawn stronger. Short grass on the other hand is more susceptible to drying out.

Your plants should always be kept in an aerated, dry area. Moisture on the surface of a plant can attract parasites, and cause disease. An example of a common plant parasite is fungi. You can control fungi with fungicides, but you must remember to use it before you notice any problems in order for it to work.

Do you like mint, but not how they ruin your garden? You can slow their growth rate by planting them in a garden container or large pot instead. You can then plant the container down in the ground if you like, but the walls of the container will hold the roots captive, and keep the plant from taking over your garden!

TIP! Before actually putting plants into your garden, check the type and compostion of your soil. Many nurseries offer a soil analysis service, which will tell you what nutrients your soil is lacking and what you can do about it.

With all of these ideas, you should be ready to excel at organic gardening. With the knowledge you have, you should be ready for anything! The tips that were given should have provided you some advice that can help you get started with growing a beautiful organic garden.
