Is your neighbor’s grass really greener than the grass your side of the fence? You might imagine that all your neighbors have some top-secret formula that keeps their grass and garden looking so much better than yours. Truth be told, there is no real secret to creating a gorgeous garden. All you need is some information on how you can care for your garden in the right way. Begin your search for gardening knowledge with the tips below and get ready to develop an even greener thumb.

There is no need to purchase a costly chemical if your plants develop powdery mildew. Mix a bit of liquid soap and some baking soda into water. Spray this solution on plants once weekly until the mildew is gone. The baking soda is harmless to your plants and a very effective remedy.

During winter, you should take your favorite plants inside. Perhaps you can save your most expensive or resistant plants. Dig around roots carefully before transferring to a pot.

Use the correct type of soil for best results. Different types of plants require different soils, so check soil requirements for the ones you choose. You can simply use one type of soil to make an artificial area.

When partaking in horticulture activities, particularly in the autumn months, keep an eye on those stink bugs. These destructive pests enjoy many kinds of fruit, as well as beans, peppers and tomatoes. If you do not check, they do a lot of damage to plants so try to get rid of them if you can.

TIP! When winter comes around, save some plants by putting them in the house. You may be able to save your most resistant or expensive plants.

Consider growing wheat grass or cat grass near the plants your cat enjoys eating. Another option is to protect your plants by lacing them with offensive entities, such as peels from citrus fruit or even moth balls from your closet.

You can use natural materials or other plants in your garden to keep away pests. Plant marigolds or onions around other vegetables to keep slugs away from them. You can also mulch around trees and shrubs with wood ash, which drives away insects. When done naturally, there is no need for pesticides with harsh, and sometimes dangerous, chemicals

Many of the tips here are quite easy and don’t require you to have any special talents. All it takes is some basic information and then you can set out to apply those ideas within your garden. Just be sure to keep a close eye on your plants and see how they respond to the various methods you apply to them. If a method does not provide good results, try other methods. A garden that is the pride of the neighborhood will be well worth the time it takes.
