You are committed to the idea of planting a garden that works well with the environment. What do you need to do get started? The following tips can help you realize your plans for your garden.

Pick your plants with an eye to maximize the yield you can get. A hybrid designed for your weather, and resistant to local diseases, will give a better yield than non-hybrids.

TIP! If you work with clay soil, you have probably found using a shovel very frustrating and exhausting. Get better results in clay by rubbing car wax or floor wax onto the shovel, then buff off and dig.

Plants will respond with maximum growth if they have the amount of CO2 they require. If the level of CO2 is extremely high, your plants will grow much better. The best way to expose your plants to a high level of carbon dioxide is by growing them in a greenhouse. The levels need to be kept high for optimum greenery growth.

Stink Bugs

If you are horticulture, be wary of stink bugs in your garden, especially in the autumn. Stink bugs are attracted to tomatoes, beans and most fruits. If you don’t treat them, they can do a lot of damage in your garden.

TIP! Use climbers to cover walls and fences. They can be used to cover up unsightly fences or walls.

Fertilizing your garden is essential. Manure can be effective, though you should use products which minimize pathogens. There are many fertilizer options available, though in reality, whatever type you choose will do the job as long as you are using something.

Place organic mulch as close to your vegetables as you can. The mulch will add beneficial moisture to your soil. It also prevents weed growth. You’ll find this is a time saver since you won’t have to pull them later.

Think about planting evergreen plants that will produce berries in the backyard. This gives your garden a bit of a “splash” of color, even in winter when everything is nearly colorless. A few examples that you could go with include the American Holly, the Winterberry, the American Cranberrybush, and the Common Snowberry.

TIP! Keep your plants dry and aerated daily. Moisture on your plants is a sure way to attract parasites and disease.

You don’t want to pick vegetables during the day when it is hot, as that is when they are prone to damage due to them being softer. Cut vegetables off at the vine, and don’t twist them off, as this could hurt the plant.

Mix various plant heights and plants in the exact same bed for a unique English garden. If you use plants that are all the same size your garden will look flat.

If you’re working to build a sustainable organic garden, try leaving a portion of your garden untouched so that the wildlife will be able to thrive. As the natural wildlife begins to flourish, the various insects, birds, and other natural life around will all blend together and actually assist your garden as it begins to grow.

TIP! Spread a little bit of organic mulch, around two inches worth, in and about each vegetable plant. Mulch will retain water so that you won’t have to water your plants as often.

Hopefully these tips have helped to prepare you for having an organic garden. You are now the expert, even if you didn’t think so before. These tips should get you started, and with some ideas of your own, you should have a thriving, beautiful garden in no time.
