Are you jealous of how other gardens look? You might believe that your next-door neighbor has a special formula for a beautiful yard that no one else knows about. The truth is that there is no horticulture “secret”. Once you learn some basic rules to follow, you will be ready to plant your own garden. You can start educating yourself by checking out the horticulture tips that follow.

Check your soil before you begin planting your garden. You can obtain a soil analysis for a nominal fee. Using that report, you can amend your soil as needed for a thriving garden. Before you ruin any crops, make sure you do this. Soil can be analyzed at a lot of cooperative extension offices, so make sure you plan accordingly.

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

Plants need CO2 grow well. Often, plants achieve better growth when they are surrounded by high levels of CO2. A greenhouse will provide the best method of providing enough CO2 for your plants. CO2 levels, when kept high, give your plants optimal growing conditions.

Yes, you really have to weed. Weeds steal nutrients from plants, robbing a garden of its potential harvest. For this task, try using white vinegar. White vinegar is a fantastic weed killer! Spray white vinegar onto those troubling weeds.

Good green gardens begin from seeds, not plants. Once the plant is healthy enough, replant it in your garden with the appropriate type of soil. Plastic used in nurseries normally end up in landfills. For an garden that helps the environment, plant seeds directly in the garden’s soil or purchase plants grown in organic packaging.

TIP! Make sure your soil is healthy enough before you start planting anything. You can obtain a soil analysis for a nominal fee.

Keep your garden free from broad-spectrum pesticides. In addition, these pesticides destroy the good insects which eat pests. Since these pesticides often affect the good bugs more than the bad, using them can actually increase your pest problem. In the end, you may resort to using even more pesticides in order to erase the problem.

You can keep your dog away from your garden by spraying perfume or aftershave in the grass. By masking the smells he may be attracted to, he should take less interest in the garden plants.

The warmth of the day can make vegetables soft, making them more prone to damage as you pick them. You can also protect both your vegetables and the plant they grow on by cutting them off instead of twisting them off.

TIP! Plants need to take in CO2 to grow and thrive. If the level of CO2 is extremely high, your plants will grow much better.

Most of these ideas are quite simple and require little advance skill. You just need some basic education on gardening techniques, then you can put that education to good use. Pay heed to the response of the plants as you work with them. If a method does not provide good results, try other methods. While it may take time, with patience your beautiful garden will be admired by the whole neighborhood.
