Organic gardening is an interesting hobby and helps you get in touch with nature. It is a good way to grow healthy fresh foods in an environmentally friendly, chemical-free way. However, organic horticulture obviously isn’t as easy as it might sound. See these tips to learn how to get started with this healthy, rewarding hobby.

Start your plants in some pots and plant its seedlings in the garden. This can give your seedlings the advantage they need to survive and reach adulthood. You will then be able to lessen the time between planting your seeds. As soon as you harvest the mature plants in your garden, your new seedlings will be large enough to plant outside!

TIP! Many times when digging in clay soil the clay will adhere to the shovel, which will make it much harder to dig. To make working in clay easier, rub the shovel with floor or car wax and then buff it with a cloth.

Make garden tools do double duty as handy makeshift rulers. Larger handled tools like rakes, hoes, and shovels make great measuring sticks. All you have to do is lay them on the floor then use a measuring tape to measure their length. Next, use a Sharpie to accurately label the distance between each one. Now when you go garden the next time, you’ll have a giant ruler at your command.

Plants all need a good supply of C02 to grow properly! 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. It’s very important to keep the CO2 levels high so your plants have the best possible growing conditions.

Tender deciduous shrubs are very fragile, so protect them. Cold weather is very hard on these tender shrubs, and potted shrubs should be shielded and protected. Tie the tops of the canes together; then take a sheet and cover the wigwam loosely. People sometimes use plastic to wrap their plants, but plastic can cause the plants to rot because it impedes air circulation.

TIP! Starting seedlings in pots before planting in your garden is a smart idea. Doing this will increase the survival rate of all your outdoor plants.

One natural method of weed removal is called “boiling”. Boiling water can be considered as an herbicide, and it is a safe one. One simple layer across the weeds with a pot of boiling water will take care of the problem, but you have to remember the same applies to your plants, as well. If you pour the water near your plants, it will kill the roots.

Are fresh mint leaves something you love but cannot stand how quickly they grow all over your garden? Instead of planting mint in your garden, keep it in a large container or pot to prevent it from spreading. By using a separate containment unit, you are limiting the plant’s ability to spread its roots and subsequently grow like wildfire. You can even plant the entire pot so that it still looks just like another plant in your garden.

Organic horticulture takes patience and hard work. It is an activity that uses the power of the earth to create something delicious an nourishing. If you want to make the most of your clean, green, organic garden, you should put your new skills to the test.
