In the world of organic horticulture, there are plenty of great resources available to both new and experienced organic gardeners alike. There are many e-guides, books, videos, and other resources available. This set of tips contains some of the best advice for helping a good organic gardener become a great organic gardener.

Shoveling clay soil is tiresome since clay is hard, and it can also stick to your shovel for twice the difficulty. Coat the shovel with floor or car wax, and buff it with a clean rag to make the job a lot easier. The wax will enable the clay soil to simply slide off the shovel, and will also prevent the shovel from rusting.

TIP! Make garden tools do double duty as handy makeshift rulers. Tools with long handles, such as rakes, shovels or hoes can work as great measuring sticks.

When horticulture, beware of stink bugs and other insects, particularly in the autumn. They love to inhabit peppers, beans, tomatoes and all kinds of fruit varieties. If not managed well, they can wreak havoc on your garden.

Bulbs will give you wonderful flowers that you can enjoy in early spring and right through the summer. A hardy perennial addition to your garden, bulbs will continue to delight every year. If you choose your plants carefully, you could have flowers in blossom from the first weeks of spring to the end of the summer.

Protect your delicate shrubs from harsh, wintry elements. Cold weather is very hard on these tender shrubs, and potted shrubs should be shielded and protected. Connect the tops, and then place a sheet over the top of the wigwam. This method is superior to covering plants in plastic, because air can freely circulate, which prevents rotting.

Knee Pads

To save your knees from the wear and tear of gardening, invest in some knee pads if your garden includes a lot of low-growth plants. Spending lots of time on your knees while gardening can injure them and create lasting pain. Having a good pair of knee pads will cushion your knees in comfort.

Aerate and dry your plants each day. If your plants get too moist, they may get sick or infested with parasites. Fungus is a common problem when plants are allowed to remain damp. There are many effective fungicide products that will prevent fungi growth and clear up any existing problems as well.

TIP! Do you enjoy fresh mint, but don’t like how they engulf your garden in their growth? You can stunt the growth of mint by planting it inside a container or super-sized bowl. If you would like the mint leaves to still be in the ground, simply plant the container, and the leaves will stay within the boundaries of the pot.

Split up your irises. Splitting up overgrown groups of irises will allow you to easily increase the number of irises in your garden. Try to life the bulbous irises when foliage begins to die. The bulbs, when harvested, should easily split by hand – allowing you to replant them for even more blooms next spring. For plants with rhizomes, use a knife to divide them. Get rid of the center and keep the new pieces you cut from the outside. Each piece should have at least one strong offshoot. Replant them immediately.

Organic Garden

The tips laid out in this article should help you gain an understanding of what goes into making a successful organic garden. Keep learning more tricks and start practicing with a few plants. With what you learned, you can change up your strategies to create and grow a very beautiful organic garden.
