Organic gardening is very popular these days but many people are afraid to dip their toes into it. The thought of starting a garden can be intimidating for many people, due to the fact that it is not something a lot of people are familiar with, and it does seem complicated. Read through this article and you can gain better insight on what it takes to start and grow your own organic garden; it’s not as hard as it may seem.

Consider planting slug-proof perennials. If slugs or snails find their favorite perennials in your garden, they’ll snack all night. When you wake up in the morning, there will be very little left of your plants. Snails and slugs like to eat perennials with smooth and thin leaves, especially if they are young plants. Others, though, are disliked by slugs and snails. Those with rough leaves or an unappetizing taste will be less desired by slugs and snails. Excellent varieties include heuchera, achillea, euphorbia, campanula, and helleborus.

TIP! Plant perennials that slugs and snails won’t be interested in eating. Snails and slugs can destroy plants in just one night.

Transplanting plants and bringing them indoors can protect them from harsh winters. This is especially useful if you have a particular plant that you love or was expensive. Carefully dig up the plants, using caution not to disturb the roots, then transfer into a pot.

Coffee Grounds

Consider adding coffee grounds to your soil if it contains high levels of alkaline. The coffee grounds provide a cheap way to re-supply needed acid to the dirt. After doing so, you will notice that your greenery and garden will be colorful and fresh.

TIP! For flowers throughout the spring and the summer, be sure to plant some bulbs. Bulbs are easy to grow and hearty, and they keep growing in years to come.

Fertilizer is important when you garden. Manure is an excellent fertilizer, but it needs to be combined with a synthetic compost to stop diseases from infecting your plants. Choosing a specific type of fertilizer is not particularly critical; as long as you’re using fertilizer, you’re improving your soil.

Read instructions before using any gardening tool you aren’t familiar with, including pesticides or other chemicals. Use the tools only as directed in the instructions. If you don’t pay good attention, you could wind up with skin irritations or other issues. Keep yourself safe by carefully following all instructions.

Don’t count the fall season out. That doesn’t have to be it though. The brightest season of the year when it comes to foliage is fall. Fall hues of orange, yellow and red can be seen falling from maple trees, and dogwoods and beech trees offer comparable spectacles. As you select your shrubbery, consider hydrangea, barberry or other similar plantings.

TIP! Do not cut your grass too short. If you let your grass grow, the roots will go deeper and make your lawn more resistant to dryness.

Water your garden carefully. Instead of watering each individual plant with a can or hose, utilize a soaker hose, which can water all the plants at once. Lower your water pressure on the soaker hose to avoid harming tender plants. Just use it on your foliage for a few hours.

Once you know more about organic horticulture, getting started should not be so intimidating. Apply the wisdom you have learned here to your home and yard, and you can enjoy pure wholesome foods in your kitchen in not time at all.
