An organic garden requires your most astute and attentive care to thrive. Smart organic horticulture can com in handy here. A good understanding of organic gardening is needed to grow healthy plants. Continue on for some helpful organic horticulture tips that stick out from the rest.

Shoveling clay soil is tiresome since clay is hard, and it can also stick to your shovel for twice the difficulty. Rub a thin layer of floor or car wax over the surface of the shovel, and then buff the surface using a clean cloth. This will make shoveling in clay soil easier. The shovel will glide through the clay and as a bonus, your shovel will be resistant to rust.

TIP! So you don’t shock the plants, you should gradually get them use to a change in the temperature and conditions. Start by placing your plants outside for a few hours only.

Start your plants in containers before transferring them to the garden. They are more likely to survive the transition to adulthood with this method. This method also gives you the freedom of tightening time periods between each planting. You can plant the seedlings once you have removed the old plants.

Long plants that run up or around a fence or wall are often useful for masking ugliness. Many climbers can cover the wall or fence in as little as one growing season. No need to worry if a bush or tree is in the way, as climbers can grow through them. Also, they can match the shape of an arbor. Some climbers will attach themselves to a support using twining stems or tendrils, while other varieties need to be held up by tying them in place. Some dependable types include honeysuckle, clematis, jasmine, climbing roses, and wisteria.

For showy flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant plenty of bulbs. Most bulbs are extremely hearty and grow easily. They also come back year after year. Plant bulbs that will bloom at various intervals to ensure beautiful flowers are growing in your garden all year long.

TIP! Use the handles of your tools as a handy ruler when doing your outdoor chores. Tools with long handles such as hoes and rakes can double as measuring sticks.

Do not mow your lawn close to the bottom. Cutting your grass at a taller height allows grass roots to grow deeper and stronger, which helps lessen the chance of your lawn drying out easily. Short grass tends to have shallow roots, which can cause dried out, brown patches to occur.

If you’re growing veggies in the garden, they need to be in a spot that lets them get about six hours of sun daily. Most vegetables that can be grown need that much sun to grow well and quickly. Some flowers need the same thing.

Your vegetable plants need about two or three inches of mulch placed around them. Mulch has a nice moisturizing effect on the soil it’s spread over. This also helps reduce the appearance of weeds. This could save you lots of weed-pulling time.

TIP! Transplanting plants and bringing them indoors can protect them from harsh winters. Find out which plants will be able to thrive despite the transplanting and different indoor conditions.

To draw good insects to your garden, plant heather. Bees are naturally attracted to heather for its nectar. Undisturbed shrubs, such as beds of heather, are probably home to a number of beneficial insects like spiders and ground beetles. For this reason, you should always remember to put on your gardening gloves when tending to your heather.

Organic gardening is a great way to improve your diet naturally. It is a good source of fresh vegetables and fruits and can improve your health markedly. If you are willing to put in the effort, you will enjoy a wonderful harvest from your own garden.
