Organic gardening can really be an intelligent move for having a healthier diet. For best results, however, you need to put in the right amount of effort. Perhaps you are unsure of the benefits of organic horticulture, or you are unsure how to get your garden started.

Pay attention to how you lay sod. You will need to prepare your lawn soil before laying the sod. Pull any weeds that you see, and work to break up the soil so that it is a fine tilth. Next, you want to make the soil compacted by applying light but firm pressure. Make sure the soil creates a flat surface. Afterward, you want to make sure the soil is moistened. Lay the sod in rows, and make sure the joints do not overlap. After the sod has been flattened to an even surface, you can use soil to fill any remaining gaps. Your sod should be watered everyday for at least two weeks, then it will root itself and walk on it.

When choosing plants, pick those that produce a high yield. In many cases, a disease-resistant or cold-tolerant hybrid will produce a higher yield than a traditional variety.

Your soil needs to be of good quality before you start a garden. A soil analysis is inexpensive and can be used to figure out which nutrients should be added to provide a healthy garden environment. You can often find Cooperative Extension offices that provide this service, which can help to make your garden flourish.

Plants require a good amount of CO2 in order to grow to their maximum height. A major portion of plants grow their best in an environment with a saturated level of CO2. The best way to get a high level is to plant them in a greenhouse. CO2 levels are best kept high, in order to provide optimal growing conditions for your plants.

TIP! If you notice powdery mildew on your plants, do not buy an expensive chemical. Instead, combine baking soda with water and liquid soap.

Cooling weather of early fall signals the opportune time to plant seasonal edibles. Try using a pumpkin as a natural plant pot. You can plant fall vegetables such as lettuce in an empty pumpkin shell. First, cut out the pumpkin’s top layer and remove the seeds. Then, spray some Wilt-Pruf on the insides to prevent the rot that would follow otherwise. Once this is done, you are ready to plant!

Organic horticulture is not rocket science, but it does some require some forethought and planning. Research and information will help you get started. It is also true that in order to see results, that you have to keep at it. Use the tips presented here, along with some ideas of your own, and you can be a thriving organic gardener in no time.
