Men and women of all ages enjoy relaxing in an organic horticulture and making things grow. But for someone just starting out it can seem very overwhelming, and even a little bit intimidating. How can you begin to learn about organic gardening? Well, you are in luck; these tips will come in handy!

Plant vines like ivy to cover fences and dividing walls. These versatile plants can grow over fences to enhance the fence’s appearance. Often, climbers grow quickly, so you’ll get the effect you want by the time the season changes. They may grow up through some existing shrubs and trees, and can even be worked to grow around an arbor. Some must be tied to supports, but some climbers use twining stems or tendrils and attach themselves to those surfaces. Honeysuckle and jasmine are very beautiful varieties of such climbers.

TIP! Pick your plants with an eye to maximize the yield you can get. A plant that is resistant to disease, or one that is tolerant of extreme weather, will deliver a higher yield.

Bring some plants into your home to protect them against winter weather. Choose the plants that are most likely to survive. Always be careful when digging around the roots, and put the plant in a suitable pot.

Grow wheat or cat grass in the area around the plants that your cat is eating. You may also place something offensively smelly atop the soil, like citrus peel or mothballs.

If you want a strange, yet successful, green answer to getting rid of weeds, boil them to death. The safest herbicide that you can use in your garden is a simple pot of boiling water. Just pour boiling water directly on top of the weeds cautiously to avoid damaging your plants. Boiling water damages weed and plant roots, so be sure to avoid the plants you don’t want to eliminate.

TIP! Cover fences and walls with lots of climbers. You can hide an unsightly wall or fence, in as little as one growing season, with the right selection of climbing plant.

Protect the soil around your vegetable plants with an inch or two of organic mulch. Mulch helps the soil surrounding the plants remain moister for a longer time. It will also prevent the growth of weeds. You’ll save a ton of time if you don’t have to constantly pull out weeds.

Do some research to find out the best time for harvesting your vegetables. Individual vegetables have distinct windows of time to pick for getting the greatest flavors. Some vegetables, such as zucchini and baby peas, should be harvested when they are relatively young. At the opposite end of the spectrum, tomatoes are at their best when mature. So, it is good to learn about the best time to harvest your vegetables.

Now you have the groundwork of knowledge necessary to start enjoying organic horticulture. Cultivating your green thumb is a relaxing, engaging hobby that the whole family can enjoy. Use these tips to get your organic garden up and running in no time.
