Organic gardening has become more popular with increased concern about the effects of fertilizers and chemicals on the environment, as well as overall health. Organic horticulture methods are extremely cheap for the most part. This article will provide some great tips for organic gardening.

Trying to shovel through clay soil can be extremely difficult and tiresome. Make your shoveling job easier by lightly coating a shovel with a layer of wax, then buffing the surface. Either car wax or floor wax will work just fine. The clay will no longer stick to the shovel, and this also helps to prevent other problems like rusting.

Tough Leaves

Try to plan a variety of perennials that are slug-proof. Snails and slugs can destroy plants in just one night. Certain perennials that don’t have tough leaves are especially tasty to snails and slugs. Perennials with hairy, tough leaves as well as those with unpleasant taste are not appetizing to snails and slugs. Excellent varieties include heuchera, achillea, euphorbia, campanula, and helleborus.

Use climbing vines or plants to cover fences and walls. These types of plants can climb anything, which makes them perfect for covering up a wall or fence that needs to be hidden. They can be trained to grow over an arbor, or through trees and shrubs that are already in the garden. There are natural climbers, which use tendrils or stems to wrap around any given surface, while others must be tied with a string or rope. You can be sure that varieties such as climbing roses, wisteria, jasmine, clematis and honeysuckle will grow very well.

TIP! When winter arrives, transfer a few plants into the house for safe storage during the cold weather. You may want to save the most beautiful or expensive ones.

Be diligent in your efforts to banishing weeds! Weeds can turn a beautiful garden into an eyesore. White vinegar can be used as a natural herbicide. White vinegar can not only kill the weeds, it’s also a non-toxic spray that won’t harm pets or people. Keep a solution of vinegar diluted with water on hand to spray on weeds.

When the fall season arrives, it is time to plant your fall edibles. Rather than using clay pots or planters for your lettuce and kale, plant them in a pumpkin! Scoop the insides out of the pumpkin, and don’t forget to spray the inside with Wilt-Pruf. This will prevent your pumpkin from rotting. Now you can use the pumpkin as a planter.

If growing vegetables, make sure they are in a location in your garden where they will be exposed daily to at least six hours of the sun. Most vegetables need this amount of sunlight to grow the right way at a faster pace. Some flowers also require direct sunlight for a portion of each day.

TIP! Many people delight in the taste of fresh mint leaves, but become frustrated when the plant spreads wildly. You can control their growth by placing them into a pot or container.

Make sure to water your garden properly. Instead of watering each individual plant with a can or hose, utilize a soaker hose, which can water all the plants at once. Keeping the water pressure low on your soaking hose will help avoid harm to tender plants. You can take care of other tasks or just relax while your plants are automatically watered for an hour or so.

If you follow these advice on organic gardening, you will be able to have a productive, toxic-free, healthy garden in the future. When you are organic horticulture and working with nature, you will also see a lot of wildlife coming to visit!
