Most people have heard about or seen organic foods. Organically produced foods typically stand out from the rest. They are usually packaged differently and often are marked up considerably. Follow the advice given here, and learn exactly how to grow organic produce at home.

Choose higher yield plant varieties. Many times, hybrid plants tend to resist disease, and tolerate the cold weather better than their traditional counterparts, resulting in higher yields.

TIP! When laying sod, it is important that you do it correctly. Before the sod can be laid, you should prepare the soil.

All soil is not the same. You need to check the soil to make sure it’s the best for what you’re planting. Have a soil report done. It is cost effective and you can make necessary adjustments, based on the report, to your soil so it is correctly enriched to encourage plant growth. A lot of cooperative extension offices can provide this service to you and it is worth knowing what you need to do in order to avoid ruining your plants.

If you would like to have flowers in your garden that last through the spring and summer seasons, plant bulbs. Most people have no trouble successfully growing bulbs, and their flowers will return each and every year. Find out which flowers will bloom when and then plant a variety, so that you can have fresh blooms all the way through the spring and summer!

When it’s autumn, it’s time to start planting all of your fall edibles. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots. You simply need to cut off the top, scoop out the guts, and spray your pumpkin with Wilt-Pruf. After that, your pumpkin planter is ready to use!

TIP! Plants that result in a larger yield should be higher on your priority list when planning the garden. Frequently, a hybrid that is able to deal with extreme temperatures will bring higher yields than the more traditional variety of a plant.

If your garden includes vegetables, make sure you plant them in a location whether they are exposed to sunlight for a minimum of six hours each day. Most vegetables require this amount of sun in order to grow properly and at a quicker pace. It’s also the same for some types of flowers.

Protect your delicate shrubs from harsh, wintry elements. If the temperature drops below 50 degrees, you should consider protecting them, especially if they do best in warm environments. Tie these canes at the top, and place a blanket over it. This is more effective than putting plastic on the plant, it will let the air flow.

Using pest-resistant plants or natural materials in your garden is a good way to keep pests away. A good way to keep slugs away is to create a border with onions around a garden with vegetables. Marigolds would do this trick as well. Wood ash, when used as mulch, can help keep insects away from trees and shrubs. When done naturally, there is no need for pesticides with harsh, and sometimes dangerous, chemicals

TIP! Plant some perennials in your garden that repel slugs. A plant can be completely demolished overnight by slugs and snails.

Growing your garden at home might not be the most convenient thing for you, but you will save a lot of money and always have the confidence that what you’re eating and feeding your family is as fresh and as healthy as possible. Use the tips you’ve learned here and get started on your garden today.
