Handy Advice For Gardening The Organic Way

If you have visions of a healthy, lush, green garden, there are things you should consider on your way to that goal. Garden can involve back-breaking labor, but it can also be very enjoyable. Following are a few tips that can make your gardening time more fun and less work.

Create useful rulers from your tool handles. Tools that can be used for more than one task are quite handy to own. Just lay your tool down on the floor then lay a yardstick beside the handle. Mark your distances with a permanent marker. Now you will always possess a large ruler ready for your use in the garden.

Flower Bed

Use both biennials and annuals to add color to your flower bed. Biennials and annuals that grow quickly can add color to a flower bed, plus they permit you to modify the way the flower bed looks each season and each year. Sunny areas in the middle of shrubs and perennials can be filled in nicely with these plants. Notable collections include sunflower, marigold, hollyhock, rudbeckia, cosmos, and petunia.

When you go to mow your lawn, make sure you don’t mow it too closely to the ground. If you leave some of the grass when you mow, the roots grow further into the ground, which makes the grass less prone to drying and other hazards. When you cut the grass too short, the roots are often not deep enough, which causes your lawn to have dry patches of brown, discolored grass.

TIP! The handles on your gardening tools can be used as a convenient measuring instrument. Handles of things such as rakes, hoes or shovels make excellent measuring instruments.

Deciduous shrubs need protection from the cold. Fragile shrubs, that are planted in pots, should be covered to protect them during the cold season. Tie the tops tightly together, and cover the wigwam with a sheet or blanket draped loosely over it. Covering your foliage in plastic will let the air in – and may lead to decay.

If many of the plants in your garden grow close to the ground, some horticulture knee pads will prevent pain and knee injuries. Gardening is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable; you don’t want to finish every gardening session with aching, throbbing knees. Your knees can get supported with a decent pair of horticulture knee pads.

To keep pests away, you can use plants in the garden or other natural materials. Slugs who want to enter a vegetable garden, for example, can be repelled by a simple border of marigolds and onions. Insects also avoid shrubs and trees that are mulched with wood ash. When done naturally, there is no need for pesticides with harsh, and sometimes dangerous, chemicals

TIP! Bulbs are a great option for people who want to enjoy spring and summer flowers. Not only are bulbs hearty and easy to grow, but they’ll continue to grow as time goes on.

With these tips, you’re better equipped to grow the most beautiful garden you can imagine. In learning how to create your dream garden, you’ll also be growing as a person. That’s because learning how to nurture your plants will not only help you reach the goal of having a great garden, but it will help you learn to nurture yourself.
