Most people in our society have heard about the benefits of eating organic, or seen organic products in the grocery store. It is easy to spot organic products. These items are packaged in a different manner, and they typically cost much more. Keep reading this article to find some great tips on how to grow an organic garden and stop paying too much at the store.

Keeping your garden soil rich and healthy is the best way to discourage garden pests. Healthy soil leads to healthy plants with more strength to deflect those insects and various diseases. To increase your garden’s likelihood of producing strong and healthy plants, use high-quality soil containing minuscule amounts of chemicals, which will eventually collect salts.

TIP! Give your flower beds a boost by introducing annuals and biennials. These biennials and annuals are fast-growing, and they allow you to brighten up your flower bed with a change for each season.

Use annuals and biennials to brighten your flower garden. 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. Use them to fill gaps between shrubs and perennials in the sun. Some examples include sunflowers, marigolds, petunias, hollyhocks, cosmos, and rudbeckia.

Baking Soda

You don’t need a costly chemical solution to deal with powdery mildew in your garden. Plain water with a bit of liquid soap and baking soda will do the trick. Spray this mix on your plants every week and the mildew should go away. Baking soda is safe for use on your plants and is a gentle, but effective way to care for your plants.

TIP! When winter arrives, you could save some plants by placing them inside your house. You might want to transplant your most valuable varieties.

Plants need CO2 grow well. If the level of CO2 is extremely high, your plants will grow much better. A greenhouse has the best levels available. A greenhouse will help maintain a high level of CO2 and cause the plants to grow faster.

When gardening, be watchful of stink bugs, particularly in the fall. They thrive on fruits, citrus, peppers and various beans. If left unattended, your garden could be ravaged by these bugs, so you need to proactively keep their population under control.

You must protect tender, deciduous shrubs. If you have some tender shrubs that are in planters, you need to protect them from cold weather. Tie together the tops. Once the canes are snugly together, put a sheet over the wigwam. This is more effective than putting plastic on the plant, it will let the air flow.

TIP! If you want your garden to blossom with flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant some bulbs in it. Bulbs will grow every year and are easier to take care of than seeds.

If you would love to have access to fresh and healthy mint leaves from your own back yard, but dread the way the plant spreads so quickly, worry not. Rein in their growth by planting the mint in a large pot or garden container instead. Then, you can plant the container into the ground. However, the container walls will keep the roots held, and prevent the plant from consuming too much of your garden space.

Growing your garden at home might not be the most convenient thing for you, but you will save a lot of money and always have the confidence that what you’re eating and feeding your family is as fresh and as healthy as possible. Use the tips you’ve learned here and get started on your garden today.
