You have the desire to set up an organic garden that is nutritious and fresh. Congratulations on making the right decision. Keep reading for tips any beginner will find useful.

Start your plants in containers, and then transplant the seedlings into the garden later on. Doing this will increase the survival rate of all your outdoor plants. It also helps you make your planting times more frequent. As soon as the mature plants are removed, you can replace them with fresh seedlings.

TIP! Starting seedlings in pots before planting in your garden is a smart idea. This will help the plants make it to full growth.

The handles of your tools can double as clever rulers. Larger handled tools like rakes, hoes, and shovels make great measuring sticks. Measure the handles with a tape measure laid out in the floor. Next, use a Sharpie to accurately label the distance between each one. Now you will always possess a large ruler ready for your use in the garden.

Plant perennials that are resistant to slug and snail infestations. Creatures like snails or slugs can destroy a plant in a single night. These pests are particularly fond of young perennials and those varieties with leaves that are tender, smooth, and thin. There are, however, certain types of perennials that slugs and snails hate. Most of these varieties either have tough leaves or taste unappealing. Some perennial families that snails and slugs won’t eat include achillea, campanula, and helleborus.

Pick the proper soil in order to get the best outcome. Fertilizer can enrich the soil to make it more viable. You may also cultivate an artificial area comprised of just one type of soil.

TIP! Don’t cut your grass down by the soil when you run the mower. If you allow your grass to grow a little longer, the roots will go down deeper into the dirt, helping the grass grow better and remain hydrated.

Prior to planting anything in your garden, check your soil. A soil analysis report can be acquired for a nominal fee. You can then use the results of that report to determine if the soil needs to be modified before you begin planting. It can avoid ruined vegetables and flowers, so check with places, such as a cooperative extension department to see where you can obtain the analysis.

In order for plants to grow, they must have enough CO2. The majority of plants thrive when they are exposed to a high level of carbon dioxide. Greenhouses provide the best levels of CO2 for plants. For the best growing conditions you should keep the CO2 levels high.

With these tips still fresh in your mind, you should be feeling more confident about your knowledge of organic gardening methods. If you already knew about organic horticulture, you should be an expert by now. Use the advice you have been given to make your organic garden bloom like never before.
