In the world of organic horticulture, there are plenty of great resources available to both new and experienced organic gardeners alike. There are many e-guides, books, videos, and other resources available. This set of tips contains some of the best advice for helping a good organic gardener become a great organic gardener.

Choose perennials that are not vulnerable to attack by slugs. Snails and slugs are garden nightmares, and only need a single evening to obliterate a plant. These pests are particularly fond of young perennials and those varieties with leaves that are tender, smooth, and thin. Perennials that are unappetizing in taste, or that have hardened and hairy leaves, are not a favorite of slugs or snails. Wonderful varieties of such perennials include euphorbia, campanula, helleborus, achillea, and heuchera.

TIP! Choose the varieties of plants that will produce a higher yield. Frequently, a hybrid plant will produce a higher yield because of its disease-resistant properties.

If you want to cover up your walls or fences, make sure that you specifically use climbing plants. These types of plants can climb anything, which makes them perfect for covering up a wall or fence that needs to be hidden. They may also grow through tress and shrubs that are already grown, or you can train them to cover your arbor. Some require a support, while other climbers attach to surfaces using twining stems or tendrils. Reliable varieties include wisteria, honeysuckle, climbing roses, clematis, and jasmine.

When fall arrives, it’s time to plant your autumn vegetables. Try planting your fall veggies, especially leafy greens, inside of a pumpkin! First, cut out the pumpkin’s top layer and remove the seeds. Then, spray some Wilt-Pruf on the insides to prevent the rot that would follow otherwise. After you have finished this, you will be ready to start planting.

Make a plan for your garden. Use this to remind you where certain things were planted, later when they start sprouting. It can also keep you from planting any of your garden favorites too close to each other.

TIP! Plants all need a good supply of C02 to grow properly! Typically, the higher the levels of carbon dioxide present in a plant’s environment, the better it will grow. Greenhouses help contain C02 to keep levels high.

Deciduous shrubs and young trees need to be protected. Shrubs in pots especially need special care in the colder weather. Fasten the tops of the canes together, and cover this wigwam loosely with a cloth. In contrast to wrapping the plant with plastic, this method promotes air circulation, which stops the plant from rotting.

If you want a strange, yet successful, green answer to getting rid of weeds, boil them to death. Boiling water in a pot is a safe “herbicide.” Soak weeds with freshly boiled water, just being mindful to not afflict damage on plants you want to keep. The boiling water will damage the roots of the weeds and will usually prevent further growth.

A good green garden should start from seeds and not plants. Starting with your own seeds is more environmentally friendly than buying plants from a nursery. Plastic used in nurseries normally end up in landfills. For an garden that helps the environment, plant seeds directly in the garden’s soil or purchase plants grown in organic packaging.

TIP! When you are tending your garden in the fall, be on the alert for stink bugs. They like fruits, as well as peppers, beans and tomatoes.

With the information you just learned, you can start trying different organic methods in your own garden. Take the tips you have learned here and apply them to your efforts. If you recall this advice, you can develop and hone your own techniques to create a flourishing organic garden.
