Many people, while favorably considering the practice, never actually commit themselves to organic horticulture. This is because people often feel too discouraged or incompetent to try something that sounds as complicated and unusual as organic gardening. Once you’ve read through this article, you will feel more confident about creating the garden of your dreams.

If you work with clay soil, you have probably found using a shovel very frustrating and exhausting. Simplify the process by putting a bit of wax onto the shovel. The clay won’t stick then. The clay won’t stick to it, and the end will not rust as an added bonus.

TIP! Annuals and biennials are an excellent way to add a splash of bright color to your flower gardens. You can use biennial and annual flowers to brighten the bed, and let you change how it looks.

Plants need C02 for maximum growth. Most plants will grow better with more CO2. A greenhouse will provide plants with an environment rich in carbon dioxide. CO2 levels are usually kept high to get the best growing situation for your plants.

Be diligent in your efforts to banishing weeds! Weeds will cause your garden to become overgrown and cluttered. White vinegar can be used as a natural herbicide. Use it instead of chemical solutions to kill weeds. If you don’t want to take the time to remove the weeds by hand, simply spray them with a white vinegar solution.

Both cat grass and wheat grass are good for giving your errant feline pause. Another option is to protect your plants by lacing them with offensive entities, such as peels from citrus fruit or even moth balls from your closet.

TIP! Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. Why not plant lettuce and kale inside a hollowed-out pumpkin? To use the pumpkin as a planter, it is important to prevent it from rotting.

One natural method of weed removal is called “boiling”. Considering that boiling water is rather safe, you don’t have to worry about toxins in your soil or at your dinner table. All you need to do is apply boiling water right to the weeds you want to get rid of. Be careful not to get any on the plants you want to keep. Boiling water will actually hurt the roots, and it will prevent the weeds from growing.

Start your peas in a protected indoors environment rather than outside. Install your plants inside and wait for the seeds to germinate. The seedlings tend to be healthier, which would help them resist diseases and pests more easily. Once the seedlings are sturdy enough, they can be transplanted to their rightful place in the garden.

Learn the ideal times for harvesting your vegetables. There is a specific time to pick every sort of vegetable in order to maximize its taste and cooking utility. For instance, peas and zucchinis are tastiest when picked young. At the opposite end of the spectrum, tomatoes are at their best when mature. It’s best to learn when the harvest time is for your vegetables.

TIP! Try to grow some wheat or cat grass around your cat’s favorite plants. You could also place something that will cause your cat to go away from your plants, such as citrus peels or mothballs.

Once you understand the advice contained in this article, you will no longer feel so hesitant to try organic horticulture. If you make proper use of the advice you have learned, you will soon be able to reap a bountiful harvest from your organic garden.
