In the world of organic horticulture, there are plenty of great resources available to both new and experienced organic gardeners alike. There are many e-guides, books, videos, and other resources available. This set of tips contains some of the best advice for helping a good organic gardener become a great organic gardener.

Clay is difficult to dig through with a shovel, as it is sticky and compact. Take the hard work out of using a shovel in clay soil by rubbing a light coat of car or floor wax over the surface with a clean cloth and buff the surface. The clay will no longer stick to the shovel, and this also helps to prevent other problems like rusting.

TIP! To prevent your plants’ systems from becoming shocked, you need to gradually transition them from higher to lower temperatures. At first, only leave them outside for a brief period of time.

Start your seedlings in pots inside and then transplant them into your garden. Doing this betters your odds of your plants making it to adulthood. In addition, it lets you tighten the time in between plantings. When you take out the prior set of adult plants, your seedlings will then be prepared to go in.

If you would like to have flowers in your garden that last through the spring and summer seasons, plant bulbs. Typically, bulbs are simple to grow, and they’ll grow every single year. Various bulbs do not all bloom at the same time, and if you employ this knowledge wisely, your garden can provide freshly blooming flowers for half the year.

Autumn not only means colder weather but new vegetables to plant. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots. Cut an opening in the top of your pumpkin, scoop out the inside, and spray the entire thing with Wilt-Proof. This will prevent rotting. Once you’ve done that, you can plant!

TIP! Fight pests before you even plant, by getting your soil in shape. The healthier the plants you grow, the more resistant they’ll be to illness, fungus, or bugs.

Consider growing wheat grass or cat grass near the plants your cat enjoys eating. Another option is to place offensively smelling objects on the topsoil near and around the plants you want to protect. Citrus peels or mothballs are a couple of examples.

Make sure that your deciduous shrubs are protected. Cold weather significantly affects these plants, especially if they are in pots. Tie together the tops, and then use a sheet or blanket to cover the wigwam loosely. You will protect your shrubs from the cold without having to cover them in plastic, which can cause rot.

Are you one of the millions who loves some fresh mint leaves, yet you absolutely hate the way they tend to take over any garden they are planted within? Instead of planting mint in the ground, confine it to a large pot. 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.

TIP! Annuals and biennials are an excellent way to add a splash of bright color to your flower gardens. These biennials and annuals are fast-growing, and they allow you to brighten up your flower bed with a change for each season.

You now know what organic horticulture is about, and exactly how to achieve excellent results. This is a field of endeavor where a wealth of useful information exists, and you have to delve into this knowledge. Use the tips and build them into your own gardening strategy and you’ll find great growing success!
