The trend toward organic foods has gradually escalated to become more of a movement; a permanent shift in the way we think about the foods that we put into our bodies. People who live this kind of lifestyle usually grow herbs and plants to enjoy the health benefits of this vegetation; they must be grown organically. Check out the helpful organic growth tricks listed below.

Consider planting slug-proof perennials. Slugs or snails can kill a plant very quickly. Snails and slugs like to eat perennials with smooth and thin leaves, especially if they are young plants. Perennials that are unappetizing in taste, or that have hardened and hairy leaves, are not a favorite of slugs or snails. A few great choices are achillea, campanula, and heuchera. Other options from which you can choose are hellebourus and euphorbia.

TIP! It can be very hard to shovel clay soil, especially when it sticks to your shovel as you are working. Make your shoveling job easier by lightly coating a shovel with a layer of wax, then buffing the surface.

Before you plant anything in your garden, have the soil checked. You can obtain a soil analysis for a nominal fee. Using that report, you can amend your soil as needed for a thriving garden. Many Cooperative Extension offices will provide this service, and it is well worth knowing exactly what the soil needs to avoid ruining a crop or two.

Shelter your deciduous shrubs. Tender shrubs are very sensitive to cold weather, especially those that are planted in pots. Tie together the tops, and then use a sheet or blanket to cover the wigwam loosely. When you do this you allow air to flow and circulate which can actually prevent rotting, this method is great and better than just wrapping your plant in some plastic.

When it comes to harvesting your vegetables, know when the optimal time is to do so. Each type of produce has unique time frames for harvesting at the peak of flavor. For example, some plants, such as zucchini and baby peas, have the most flavor when harvested while young. Yet, in reverse, tomatoes must wait for prime-ripeness before they are subject to being picked. You should know the proper time to pick vegetables.

Spectrum Pesticides

Broad-spectrum pesticides are really not the optimal choice for pest control in your garden. These types of pesticides also kill the beneficial insects that eat the pests. Bugs that provide a benefit to your garden are more easily killed by these broad-spectrum pesticides, you may simply end up with a bigger pest problem. This ends up becoming a vicious cycle of increasing pesticide use.

Make sure to water your garden properly. Instead of watering each individual plant with a can or hose, utilize a soaker hose, which can water all the plants at once. Turn down the water pressure to its lowest setting, as anything higher could harm the plants. It can water the plants for two hours so that you can do other things.

TIP! Keep an eye open for stink bugs in your garden, especially during the fall months. They like beans, peppers, tomatoes and many fruits.

As you pick up more tips, acquire new techniques, and learn more in general about organic gardening, you will find organic gardening becoming easier for you. The tips in this article are just a jumping off point for you.
