Organic horticulture is something that many families want to do but simply never take on the challenge. Some may feel overwhelmed by all that needs to be done in order to create an organic garden. This article can help you get the tips you need to make the leap into the fun and beneficial world of organic gardening.

Choose perennials that are not vulnerable to attack by slugs. Snails and slugs can quickly wreak havoc on a garden. These pests gravitate to young perennials with smooth, tender, thin leaves. Some perennials aren’t that tasty to snails and slugs since they have tough and hairy leaves, and an unappetizing flavor. Achillea, euphorbia, helleborus, heuchera and campanula are good choices that slugs don’t like.

TIP! You will need to properly lay sod. Before laying the sod, have your soil prepared.

For the best results, select the right kind of soil. Depending on what kind of plants you want in your garden, the soil might or might not be adapted. You can make an artificial area that uses a single kind of soil.

Before you plant anything in your garden, have the soil checked. A soil analysis report can be acquired for a nominal fee. You can then use the results of that report to determine if the soil needs to be modified before you begin planting. It can avoid ruined vegetables and flowers, so check with places, such as a cooperative extension department to see where you can obtain the analysis.

Do not mow your lawn close to the bottom. If you leave your grass kind of high, your roots will be deeper and your lawn will be stronger and not dry out. When grass is cut too low the roots will not grow as deep, and your lawn may suffer from brown patches.

TIP! A great gardening tip to use is to always select types of plants that are more likely to produce a high yield. A plant that is resistant to disease, or one that is tolerant of extreme weather, will deliver a higher yield.

Plan your garden before you plant it. This is a good way to remember which plants have been planted in each area before they grow. In addition, some plants are so small you might forget you planted them once all your plants sprout. Planning stops these plants from getting lost in the crowd.

Tender deciduous shrubs are very fragile, so protect them. If the temperature drops below 50 degrees, you should consider protecting them, especially if they do best in warm environments. Tie the tops tightly together, and cover the wigwam with a sheet or blanket draped loosely over it. This method is superior to covering plants in plastic, because air can freely circulate, which prevents rotting.

There are natural steps you can take to keep garden pests at bay. Onions and marigolds can get rid of pests in the garden. Insects can be deterred if you use wood ash instead of mulch around trees and shrub seedlings. These methods prevent use of harsh chemicals.

TIP! Plant slug-proof perennials. It is alarming to see how quickly slugs, and their cousin snails, can annihilate a plant.

By using the following tips in the above article, you will find organic gardening to be simple. By using the information you have learned from the tips above, you can start to grow the organic garden that you’ve always wanted.
