Planting a garden in your yard is an ideal way to secure a steady source of fresh fruit and veggies. What could be better than making a salad from the vegetables in your garden? A wide variety of information is available online, in magazines and in gardening books to help you grow a healthy, luscious garden.

Bulbs planted in the spring can flower all the way into summer. Bulbs are hearty and will continue to grow every year. Find out which flowers will bloom when and then plant a variety, so that you can have fresh blooms all the way through the spring and summer!

TIP! Trying to shovel through clay soil can be extremely difficult and tiresome. Take the hard work out of using a shovel in clay soil by rubbing a light coat of car or floor wax over the surface with a clean cloth and buff the surface.

It’s easy to just jump in and start horticulture without thought, but it’s important to plan your garden first. Use your seed packages to make fun markers that will remind you where each type of plant is growing. This is also a great way to keep track of all your plants.

You could try to boil weeds if you are trying to remain organic. Boiling water in a pot is a safe “herbicide.” All you need to do is apply boiling water right to the weeds you want to get rid of. Be careful not to get any on the plants you want to keep. Boiling water is not good for the weed roots and will stunt further growth.

Use fertilizer for maximum planting success. 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. You have many different choices for fertilizer; choose whichever is best-suited to your plants but definitely use one.

TIP! The handles of your tools can double as clever rulers. Tools that have long handles such as rakes, hoes and shovels can be used in place of a measuring stick.

Keeping pests out of a vegetable garden can be difficult. Don’t spray any harsh chemicals on your vegetables because you will be eating them later on. One way that you can help control garden pests is to remain vigilant. When you are vigilant, you can simply remove the pests from your plants manually as soon as you notice them. Early detection is the best solution to ridding your garden of pests.

Gardening helps with relaxation. While there are many different ways to relax, choosing the right one for you is key. Gardening is a great way to achieve this satisfaction. The cost is low and the reward is often high. You will feel great satisfaction by creating your own garden of tranquility.

Try to avoid direct sun exposure when you are gardening during the day; wear protective clothing. Wear sunglasses and hats with wide brims, and apply sunscreen. When you keep your eyes and skin properly protected, you are less likely to get a sunburn. You also lower your risk in developing cancer of the skin.

TIP! Use annuals and biennials to enliven your flower beds. Annuals and biennials that grow quickly can really wake up your flower beds, and they allow you to have a new garden look every season or every year, if you choose to.

The hobby of gardening not only gives you something enjoyable to do, but produces tasty vegetables, herbs and fruit right at home. If you use these ingredients when you cook, you will have a sense of pride in your dishes. Follow these tips to garden efficiently and enjoy it.
