In the world of organic gardening, 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.

Choose plant strains that will give you the best harvest with the biggest yield. Many times, a cold-tolerant or disease-resistant hybrid can have a higher yield versus traditional ones.

Soil Analysis

Do a soil analysis prior to planting. You can get a soil analysis, and if you find your soil needs a supplement, do it! The cost of the analysis will be easily offset by the benefits of a healthy and vibrant crop.

Plant some wheat grass or cat grass near where you car tends to nibble in your garden. You can also put something on top of the soil around the plants that has an offensive smell to cats, such as mothballs or citrus peel.

TIP! Take the time to remove weeds. Weeds can be extremely detrimental to your garden.

When you go to mow your lawn, make sure you don’t mow it too closely to the ground. If you leave a bit more height, the grass roots will get deeper, making your lawn stronger. The shorter the grass is, the shorter the roots are, which leads to a dry lawn.

One natural method of weed removal is called “boiling”. Boiling water is an excellent, organic substance for use against weeds. Just pour out the water on the weeds being careful to avoid any nearby plants. Boiling water is not good for the weed roots and will stunt further growth.

Try and maintain daily aerated and dried plants. If you have excess moisture, this can attract bugs or diseases. A common parasite found in the plant kingdom is fungi. Fungicidal spray treatments can contain fungi, but spraying prior to problems even developing in the first place is the best way to go about it.

TIP! A set of knee pads are a life saver if you’re an avid gardener and a lot of your plants sit close to the ground. Gardening is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable; you don’t want to finish every gardening session with aching, throbbing knees.

Create your own garden from scratch with seeds, rather than plants. When planting a garden, the best way is to initially start with seeds. Packaging materials for many plants utilize plastics that are not recyclable, so avoid these containers and choose instead to sow your garden with seeds or utilize organic pots.

Use plants to get some autumn color. However, you can still maintain your horticulture hobby throughout the fall months. The autumn season can be one of the best growing seasons and is certainly the most colorful. Maple trees can range from beautiful reds and yellows in addition to Beech or Dogwood trees. There are practically as many types of shrubs chosen for their fall colors are there are gardeners! Barberry, hydrangea and cotoneaster are particularly popular choices.

You now know what organic horticulture is about, and exactly how to achieve excellent results. There is plenty of information out there for you to use, it’s all a matter of how you apply it. Take what you have learned and use it make your garden as successful as you can.
