Learn some tips that can help you grow a much better garden for you, your family, or your business. If you ascertain beforehand exactly what you need, you will not be throwing away money on unnecessary items, or plants that are not suited to your environment.

It’s sometimes possible to save certain plants from winter cold by bringing them inside. Think about saving your resistant plants or the expensive ones. Dig carefully around the roots and transfer the plants to a pot.

TIP! Check your soil before you begin planting your garden. There are soil testing services that can analyze a garden’s soil content for a small charge.

The kind of soil you use will influence the results. Dependent on the type of plants you are choosing for the garden, the soil may not be right for them. You can also make an artificial area with one variety of soil.

Try and maintain daily aerated and dried plants. If you have excess moisture, this can attract bugs or diseases. Fungi are a very common and irritating pest in the world of gardening. It is possible to get rid of fungi after it appears with anti-fungal sprays, but it’s better to spray at-risk areas before fungi appear.

Natural Materials

TIP! Prepare your seeds by soaking them in a dark environment. Place some seeds in your smaller pots and add water almost to the brim.

You can prevent pests from invading your garden with certain plants and natural materials. A border of onions or marigolds around a vegetable garden can repel slug. Insects can be deterred if you use wood ash instead of mulch around trees and shrub seedlings. Natural materials and plants can be just as effective as chemical pesticides at keeping unwanted visitors out of your garden!

Pest control is one of the hardest things about growing a vegetable garden. Don’t spray any harsh chemicals on your vegetables because you will be eating them later on. Instead of resorting to these harmful chemicals, you can keep garden pests at bay simply by paying close attention. If you catch pests early, you can remove them by hand effectively.

Spray fragrances such as old perfume or aftershave on grass around your garden to help keep your dog away from the plants. This helps mask the attractive scents and can make your garden unappealing to them.

TIP! Try to grow some wheat or cat grass around your cat’s favorite plants. Another option is to protect your plants by lacing them with offensive entities, such as peels from citrus fruit or even moth balls from your closet.

Organize your gardening so that you can work efficiently. You do not have the time to spend an hour looking for each tool you need. Before you make a trip to your garden, you should gather all tools and items in advance. Afterwards, be sure to return them to their original storage place. You may also wish to invest in a tool belt to keep all of your tools within reach while horticulture.

Try to keep plastic bags on hand to cover shoes that are muddy. You will be able to go in and out without having to keep taking your shoes on and off.

Laundry Basket

TIP! Do not mow your lawn close to the bottom. If you leave your grass kind of high, your roots will be deeper and your lawn will be stronger and not dry out.

An old laundry basket works great for gathering produce from your garden. The laundry basket is a perfect strainer for any produce run off. Rinse your produce while it lays in the basket; any excess water strains off through the laundry basket holes.

Are you ready to do some research, do some work outside, and be patient? The work will pay off, once you see how you can make something grow.
