Make sure you take care of your garden the best you can. This can be achieved by using smart, eco-savvy horticulture techniques. While the garden itself is important, your real goal is to grow great tasting produce that is healthy and does no harm to the environment or the consumer. Use this advice to take your organic garden to the next level.

When laying sod, it is important that you do it correctly. You want to prepare the soil before you lay down the sod. Do some weeding if necessary, then break the soil until it is no longer packed. Make sure the soil is packed firmly and even. Thoroughly water the soil. You should lay your sod staggered, and have the joints offset. Compact the sod down so you form a flat and even surface, then fill in any crevices within the sod by using some soil. Once it is in place, the sod requires frequent watering for at least two weeks. This is usually the amount of time it takes for the sod to grow roots, making it ready to grow seamlessly into place.

TIP! Clay is difficult to dig through with a shovel, as it is sticky and compact. To make the clay soft so you aren’t working as hard, take floor or car wax and rub a light coat on the surface of the shovel using a clean cloth, then buff the surface.

Starting a garden which is pest-free is easy, if you have healthy soil. Healthy plants can better ward off pests and diseases. If you want to get the best plants, begin with a soil that has hardly any chemicals, and that will bring salts.

Try using climber plants to cover up your fences and walls. Climbing plants are great for hiding hideous fences and walls, and they usually grow within a season. They can be trained to grow over an arbor, or through trees and shrubs that are already in the garden. Some require a support, while other climbers attach to surfaces using twining stems or tendrils. Trusted variations of climbers are honeysuckle, jasmine, clematis, wisteria and climbing roses.

Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. A pumpkin makes a great container, and costs less than a clay pot. Once you’ve cut its top and scooped the insides out, spray the edges and inside with Wilt-Pruf to prevent rotting. Once you have finished, you can begin planting.

TIP! Create useful rulers from your tool handles. You can use shovels or rakes as measuring sticks.

Plant a little catnip or wheatgrass in the area surrounding the plants that your cat is devouring. Alternatively, you can try putting mothballs, citrus peel or anything else with an odor that cats find distasteful in the soil surrounding the plants.

Coffee Grounds

If you find that you have soil that has high amounts of alkaline, mix used coffee grounds throughout the soil. The coffee grounds provide a cheap way to re-supply needed acid to the dirt. This solution will make the vegetables you grow healthier and more flavorful.

TIP! Climbing plants make a strong addition to walls, fences or other free-standing structures. Plants that grow as climbers are quite versatile, helping you hide ugly walls or fences, many times within only one season of growth.

The tips above have shown you that there is a noticeable difference in the quality of produce produced by organic horticulture. An organic garden is a ton of work to make successful but well worth the effort.
