In the world of organic gardening, there are plenty of great resources available to both new and experienced organic gardeners alike. There are many e-guides, books, videos, and other resources available. This set of tips contains some of the best advice for helping a good organic gardener become a great organic gardener.

It can be very hard to shovel clay soil, especially when it sticks to your shovel as you are working. Coat and buff the digging end of the shovel with automobile wax to make digging easier. You will be able to work with the clay more easily, and it will not stick to your shovel.

Select plant varieties capable of producing large yields. A plant that is resistant to disease, or one that is tolerant of extreme weather, will deliver a higher yield.

Flower Beds

Use annuals and biennials to enliven your flower beds. These usually grow quickly, and provide an easy-to-change solution to making your flower beds bright and beautiful. They allow you to select different flowers from one year or season to the next. Use these beautiful flowers to line your driveway, surround trees and shrubs, and for decorative hanging baskets. Some varieties are hollyhocks, petunias and sunflowers.

TIP! Sometimes the soil you want to use for your garden has a high alkaline content. Combine coffee grounds with the soil to reduce this.

Pre-soak your seeds through the night in a dark area. Drop some seeds into a small glass or other container, and fill it with water. This will give your seeds a good start by making sure they have plenty of water, which they need to sprout. This gives the seeds a better chance of flourishing.

Grow wheat or cat grass in the area around the plants that your cat is eating. You could also repel your pet by planting rosemary or placing citrus fruit peels around your garden.

When you grow veggies in a garden, you need to ensure they get at least six hours of good sunlight each day. This allows the vegetables to grow quickly and healthily. This is true of some flowers.

TIP! Try to have a plan with your garden. This will help you to remember where you planted the different plants when sprouts begin to shoot up from the ground.

Deciduous shrubs need protection from the cold. Delicate shrubs that are sitting in pots should be sheltered from the cold weather. Tie together the tops. Once the canes are snugly together, put a sheet over the wigwam. This method is preferred to wrapping a plant in plastic, since it promotes circulation and prevents rotting.

You should divide irises. Try increasing your stock by dividing your overgrown clumps of plants. Lift the dead bulbous irises. The bulbs should split naturally, and the replanted bulbs will usually flower within a year. If you have a rhizome you will need to split it with a knife. Discard the center and cut pieces from the exterior. Each piece should have at least one strong offshoot. For optimum viability, plant your new cuttings into the ground without delay.

Organic Garden

TIP! There are natural materials, and you can also use other plants to help keep pests away from your garden. Slugs stay away from marigolds and onions when they are planted in a garden.

The tips in this article should give you an idea of the effort and determination required to create a successful organic garden. Even the best information needs to be implemented correctly, however, so be very cognizant of that fact. Use the tips here, do some further research, and try a few ideas of your own. You can enjoy a lovely organic garden quicker than you think.
