A lot of people are becoming more aware of the chemicals that are put in our everyday produce and how this can harm them, this is why they decide to grow organically. Also, organic gardening can save you a lot of money. Here are some helpful techniques to help you learn to garden organically.

It is important that you give your plants the chance to gradually adjust to the change in temperature and conditions, or you risk shocking them. At first, only leave them outside for a brief period of time. As the week progresses, gradually increase their exposure to the outdoors. When the week is done, your plants will be ready for the big move without any problems.

Measuring Sticks

Your tool handles can double as measuring sticks. Tools with long handles, such as rakes, shovels or hoes can work as great measuring sticks. Place the handles on the floor, then set a measuring tape alongside them. Label the distances on the handle with a marker pen that will not smear or fade away. Next time you are working in the garden, you will have a large ruler at your fingertips!

When mowing your lawn do not cut it as short as possible. Higher grass sends roots further down, increasing lawn strength and viability. If you have short grass, you will have short roots and you will dry out your grass.

TIP! Keeping your garden soil rich and healthy is the best way to discourage garden pests. Healthy and well-nourished plants will be hardier and therefore better able to prevent pests from taking hold.

Protect your delicate deciduous shrubs from harsh elements. If you have them in pots, you need to guard them from cold weather that will damage or kill them. Pull the canes together at the top and securely tie them. Next, using a sheet or perhaps even a blanket, cover the structure. This method is preferred to wrapping a plant in plastic, since it promotes circulation and prevents rotting.

Boiling away unwanted weeds is an odd, but productive method used in many gardens. This is a safe way to eliminate weeds, as this will not damage the soil. Pour the boiling water directly onto the weeds, just make sure you do not damage the nearby plants. Boiling water is not good for the weed roots and will stunt further growth.

Be consistent with garden fertilization. Manure helps your plants grow. Make sure you use a product that is commercially composted so you don’t risk adding pathogens to your garden. There are numerous types of fertilizers available. What type you select is less of a concern; any kind of fertilizer is better than none.

Organic Garden

Putting the advice you just learned to use in your organic garden will help you realize several benefits, including having healthy plants and a reduction in toxins. A flourishing organic garden will also be an open invitation to some very interesting creatures of the wild that you can look forward to seeing.
