If you are environmentally conscious and worried about the toxic effects of chemicals, organic horticulture may be for you. Organic gardeners eschew the harsh chemicals and fertilizers used by large corporate farms. Organic gardening methods are extremely cheap for the most part. In the following paragraphs, you’ll find some suggestions that will help you make the most of your garden.

Plant a variety of flowers to keep your flower garden colorful and interesting. Annuals and biennials can add excitement and interest to your flower garden every season. By utilizing quick-growing biennials and annuals, not only will you be brightening up your flower bed, you can also alter its look each season and each year. If there are gaps between the perennials and shrubs you have planted in a sunlit area, try filling those gaps with annuals and biennials. Notable biennials and annuals include marigold, sunflowers, hollyhock, petunia, and cosmos.

TIP! Learn the proper way to lay sod. Before laying sod, you have to make sure the soil is accurately prepared.

For proper optimum growth, plants require sufficient amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). When exposed to high levels of CO2, most types of plants will grow better. Getting a greenhouse is the best way to get a higher amount. Here the CO2 can be increased, as it cannot be outdoors, and can give your plants the best conditions for rapid growth.

Be sure to weed your garden. A vibrant garden will be overrun with weeds if they are left alone. To help you do this, you may want to consider using white vinegar. White vinegar can not only kill the weeds, it’s also a non-toxic spray that won’t harm pets or people. So, use a spray solution of white vinegar if you are tired of pulling those weeds by hand.

Plant Bulbs

TIP! Do not spend your money on chemicals to fight mildew. Plain water with a bit of liquid soap and baking soda will do the trick.

If you want your garden to sport flowers in the spring as well as summer, plant bulbs. Most people have no trouble successfully growing bulbs, and their flowers will return each and every year. Plant bulbs that will bloom at various intervals to ensure beautiful flowers are growing in your garden all year long.

Get horticulture knee pads if you have low-growing plants. Weeding, watering and picking through your vegetation can cause a lot of damage to your knees if left unprotected. Purchase a great pair of knee pads; they will provide a cushion for your knees while making horticulture more comfortable.

Use fertilizer for maximum planting success. Manure is a great garden additive, but it is important that you choose a manure that has been composted commercially so that there is less of a risk of pathogens. There are numerous types of fertilizers available. What type you select is less of a concern; any kind of fertilizer is better than none.

TIP! Autumn not only means colder weather but new vegetables to plant. Instead of using regular clay pots this year for planting lettuce and kale, try a pumpkin container instead! You simply need to cut off the top, scoop out the guts, and spray your pumpkin with Wilt-Pruf.

By following some of the tips we include in this article, you’ll be up and running in no time and will soon have a good supply of produce grown in your own garden. Planting a natural garden also encourages wildlife to enjoy your garden, and this even benefits the plants growing within.
