Gardening is known by most people to be a relaxing and therapeutic hobby. Knowing the right soil to get, which tools to purchase and when you should be planting are a few of the questions gardeners want to know. This article contains important information for anyone wanting to begin a garden.

Pick your plants with an eye to maximize the yield you can get. It is quite common to find that hybrids, which are often able to resist disease and withstand cold climates, produce yields much larger than their conventional counterparts.

Baking Soda

If you see mildew that is powdery, stay away from expensive chemicals to treat it. Combine baking soda with a small dollop of liquid soap and add it to water. Once weekly, spray this mixture to the affected areas of your plants, and the mildew should be eliminated shortly. Baking soda is a good way to get rid of mildew on your plants gently.

Take the time to remove weeds. Unwanted weeds fight for the same nutrients that more desirable plants do, and they also are unsightly. White vinegar can be a good solution. White vinegar can kill weeds! If you are too busy to pull weeds by hand, make a white vinegar solution and keep it handy for a quick spray when needed.

TIP! Knee pads are absolute miracle accessories if you work in a garden with plenty of low-growing plants. The amount of time that you spend gardening on your knees can make your knees hurt by the time you are done.

Plant cool-weather edibles in the fall. Instead of a clay pot, show some fall spirit by using a hollow pumpkin to plant your lettuce or kale in. Clean out the pumpkin just like you would if you were making a jack o’lantern. Spray Wilt-Pruf inside the pumpkin and along its edges so that the pumpkin won’t rot. Once you’ve done that, you can plant!

Your vegetable garden should get at least six hours of sun daily. Most vegetables need that much sun to grow rapidly and successfully. This holds true for some types of flowers.

Cooled water left over from steaming vegetables can be fed to them as a little snack. You can also use tea or coffee grounds to acidify soil for plants such as rhododendrons and gardenias. Chamomile tea is a good remedy against fungus.

Harmful Ones

Broad-spectrum pesticides are really not the optimal choice for pest control in your garden. Broad-spectrum pesticides will kill insects that are helpful to your garden as well as the harmful ones. Beneficial insects are more susceptible to strong pesticides than the insects you are actually trying to get rid of. This will lead you to end up killing off the good bugs in your garden, leaving the field wide open for the harmful ones. This ends up becoming a vicious cycle of increasing pesticide use.

As this article indicates, gardening is a relaxing and gratifying hobby, as long as you have the proper knowledge. With the right advice and proper planning, you’ll soon have a thriving garden. Apply the garden laid out here and you will soon enjoy a gorgeous garden you grew yourself.
