The popularity of holistic living is increasing in the wake of the growth of organic trends. People who want to develop a more environmentally friendly attitude may not know where to start to reap the benefits of organic gardening. Read through this article to learn what you need to do when it comes to organic horticulture.

Use both annuals and biennials to add a splash of color to your flower beds. Fast growing biennials and annuals can enliven a flower bed while letting you change up the look each season and year. These kinds of flowers are also excellent for filling in gaps between shrubs and perennials in sunny areas. The most popular varieties to use include petunia, zinnia, cosmos, snapdragon, marigold, hollyhock, and sunflower.

TIP! You can use the wooden handles of your tools as measurement sticks. Large handled tools such as shovels, rakes, and hoes can be used as measuring sticks.

It is very important to keep the weeds from taking over in your garden. Unwanted weeds fight for the same nutrients that more desirable plants do, and they also are unsightly. To aid in this venture, you might want to use white vinegar. White vinegar can not only kill the weeds, it’s also a non-toxic spray that won’t harm pets or people. So, use a spray solution of white vinegar if you are tired of pulling those weeds by hand.

You should get a wheelbarrow and a kneeling stool for garden work. Spending too much time on the ground working can be quite hard on your knees, and a horticulture stool can help alleviate this, plus make things more comfortable for you. As well, horticulture can involve some heavy lifting and moving, so a strong wheelbarrow can really make that aspect much more effortless.

You should be cognizant of the peak time for harvesting your vegetables. Each variety of vegetable has a specific time to be harvested so that you may enjoy its fullest flavor. Baby peas, for example have much better flavor if they are harvested early in the ripening process, as does zucchini. Tomatoes, though, are tastiest when they have been allowed to ripen on the vine as long as possible. Take the time to learn when your produce will be at its best for harvesting.

TIP! Plants all need a good supply of C02 to grow properly! A high level of CO2 provides an optimum environment for growth. Getting a greenhouse is the best way to get a higher amount.

Take advantage of gardening as a means to unwind. You may be aware of various ways to find peaceful relaxation. Horticulture is a great way to do so. There are numerous returns based on a very small monetary investment. The best part of it is not the plants themselves, but the stillness achieved by tending to them.

The prevent your dog from trampling through your garden, spray some old aftershave, perfume or other heavily scented things on the grass around your plants. This will mask the garden smell that is attracting your dog, and it will make it a less appealing place for your dog to visit.

The more you know about organic horticulture, the easier your horticulture will be. Reading this article was the perfect way to set the ball in motion.
