Organic gardening is a rewarding hobby that anyone can enjoy, as long as they know what they’re doing. Starting to garden can be intimidating at first. How then should someone who does not have any experience start getting involved with organic gardening? The best way to start is to continue reading this article!

When laying sod, it is important that you do it correctly. Get your soil ready before you lay the sod. Remove the weeds, then break up the soil into fine tilth. Compact the soil gently but firmly to be certain that it is indeed flat. Gently sprinkle water on the soil until you are certain that it is thoroughly moistened. Stagger your sod so that each joint offsets from joints in adjacent rows. Even out the surface of the sod by firming it down flat, filling any available gaps with a handful of dirt. Sod has to be watered daily for two weeks, and then it can be rooted.

TIP! Create useful rulers from your tool handles. Tools that have long handles such as rakes, hoes and shovels can be used in place of a measuring stick.

To prevent your plants from getting shocked by a big change, get them gradually used to climate and temperature changes. Put the plants outside in the sun for one to two hours in the beginning. Over one week, gradually build up the amount of hours you leave the plants outside. At week’s end, the plants should be welcoming of their new home.

Select plants that produce a relatively high yield. Hybrids are usually hardier in terms of disease and weather resistance, and are designed to produce more.

Before actually putting plants into your garden, check the type and compostion of your soil. For a small fee, a soil analysis can be obtained – based on that report – the soil can be properly enriched to support a vibrant garden. A lot of cooperative extension offices can provide this service to you and it is worth knowing what you need to do in order to avoid ruining your plants.

TIP! Annuals and biennials are an excellent way to add a splash of bright color to your flower gardens. You can use biennial and annual flowers to brighten the bed, and let you change how it looks.

Don’t plant a garden without planning it. That way, if you see your plants beginning to bud but can’t recall what they are, you can refer back to your plan to refresh your memory. With a plan, you will also be less likely to lose track of small groups or individual plants within a large and ambitious garden.

Now that you have read this article, you know why organic gardening is such a fun activity. It is very relaxing and fun to work in a beautiful garden. By applying the advice and insights of this article, you can garden as good as the professionals.
