The hobby of organic gardening requires both a green thumb and a great deal of patience. Gardening is a hobby which can grow healthy produce that is pesticide free. It actually isn’t as hard as it sounds. These tips will help you grow like a professional does.

Consider starting your plants in pots and then planting the seedlings in your garden. This boosts the chance that the plants can survive to adulthood. It also lets you have tighter control over the planting periods in your garden. Your seedlings will be ready to be planted when you remove your old mature plants.

TIP! Select plant varieties capable of producing large yields. In most circumstances, a cold-tolerant or disease-resistant hybrid will have a higher yield when compared to a more traditional variety.

When partaking in horticulture activities, particularly in the autumn months, keep an eye on those stink bugs. They love to inhabit peppers, beans, tomatoes and all kinds of fruit varieties. If they are left in the garden, they can do great damage to your plants, so you should do whatever you can to eliminate them.

If you would like to have flowers in your garden that last through the spring and summer seasons, plant bulbs. Bulbs are one of the easiest plants to grow and are hardy perennials that return each year. Different varieties of bulbs flower at varied times and if you make the right choices you can have blossoms from early spring through late summer.

When you go to mow your lawn, make sure you don’t mow it too closely to the ground. If you leave a bit more height, the grass roots will get deeper, making your lawn stronger. Cutting your grass too short will cause it to dry out and turn brown in patches throughout your yard.

TIP! Turn the handles of tools you have on hand into rulers to make measurements in your garden. Large handled tools like rakes, hoes or shovels may be used like measuring sticks.

As the weather turns colder, it is important to prepare your sensitive shrubs for the change. If the temperature drops below 50 degrees, you should consider protecting them, especially if they do best in warm environments. The tops should be tied together, and the wigwam should be loosely covered with a sheet or blanket. Using fabric, rather than plastic, allows air circulation and prevents rotting from moisture build up.

You can keep pests away from your garden by using other plants or natural materials. A good way to keep slugs away is to create a border with onions around a garden with vegetables. Marigolds would do this trick as well. Wood ash used as mulch helps repel pests as well when around shrubs and trees. Natural remedies, like the ones listed, will help reduce the need and usage of harsh chemical pesticides.

Organic horticulture can be a wonderful hobby that involves a love of nature, desire for healthier living, and much patience, too. This hobby allows you to use the land and grow delicious food. It takes a combination of knowledge, skill and experience to become a good organic gardener. The tips you’ve read above will help you towards that goal.
