Organic gardening can either be a wonderful hobby, or a nuisance nightmare. The following suggestions will guide you on how to be a very successful organic gardener.

Carbon Dioxide

TIP! To get the best results in your garden, you need to use a good quality soil. Find out more about the plants you like and which type of soil is best.

For proper optimum growth, plants require sufficient amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). With a high level of CO2 plants will grow much better. The best way to expose your plants to a high level of carbon dioxide is by growing them in a greenhouse. The levels need to be kept high for optimum greenery growth.

For showy flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant plenty of bulbs. Bulbs are easy to grow and hearty, and they keep growing in years to come. The types of bulbs you use will determine the time of year your flowers will bloom, giving you the pleasure of blooms from spring to summer, if you plant them right.

When it’s autumn, you know what that means. It’s time to plant fall vegetables! Try something different by planing kale or lettuce inside a pumpkin, instead of using the planter pots you traditionally use. Hollow out the pumpkin and spray with Wilt-Pruf to prevent rot. After you have finished this, you will be ready to start planting.

TIP! Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is essential to the growth of plants because of its role in photosynthesis. When exposed to high levels of CO2, most types of plants will grow better.

You can prevent pests using other plants or natural materials. Onions and marigolds can get rid of pests in the garden. Wood ash, when used like mulch, can keep away pests after it is spread around a tree base and shrub seedlings. By utilizing these methods, you will not have to apply chemical pesticides on your vegetation.

Learn the best harvest time for each vegetable. Every vegetable has a proper time to be picked in order to capture the perfect flavor. For example, baby peas and zucchini taste best when they are picked young. Let your tomatoes, however, linger on the vine until they are fully ripe. So, make sure you do some research, and find out when the best time to harvest your vegetables is.

To keep dogs from disturbing your garden, spray some old aftershave, cologne, perfume or other strongly-scented products in the dirt or grass surrounding it. These scents overpower the garden’s scents, which causes your dog to lose interest.

TIP! If you discover that your soil is very alkaline, take used coffee grounds and mix them thoroughly with your soil. This is an easy and inexpensive method to increase the acidity of your soil.

It is important to protect your knees when you are gardening. Bending over from a standing position is something many people cannot do. Kneeling down on the ground is a more comfortable way for many people to tend to their gardening chores. You can use knee pads to kneel without the pain.

Now that you’ve read this article, you can see that there is much more to do with organic gardening than meets the eye. While creating a lovely organic garden takes a lot of effort, the results are more than worth the work. If you take the information in this piece to heart, you will soon have an effective arsenal of organic horticulture techniques.
