A green thumb and a great deal of patience is needed to take on the hobby of organic gardening. This pastime should yield amazing and healthy foods, free of pesticides and other chemicals found in store bought produce. It is challenging, but not as hard as you may think. The following hints and tips can help you grow your own organic garden easily and successfully.

Digging in hard clay soil is made even more difficult because it sticks to the shovel. Coat and buff the digging end of the shovel with automobile wax to make digging easier. The shovel will glide through the clay and as a bonus, your shovel will be resistant to rust.

TIP! Digging in hard clay soil is made even more difficult because it sticks to the shovel. One way to get around this problem is to coat the shovel with wax.

Plant perennials that slugs and snails won’t be interested in eating. Slugs and snails are voracious eaters that can destroy a plant literally overnight. They gravitate towards perennials with smooth thin leaves, particularly on younger plants. Perennials with hairy leaves or bitter taste are unattractive to snails and slugs, keeping them safe from harm. Some of these plants include achillea, campanula, euphorbia, hellaborus, and heuchera.

Make sure to be weary of stink bugs whenever you garden, particularly during the fall months. Fruits, peppers and tomatoes are among the foods they love to eat. If you don’t treat them, they can do a lot of damage in your garden.

Your plants need to be kept dry, but sill receiving a good amount of air. Moisture on the surface of a plant can attract parasites, and cause disease. One common organism that thrives on moisture is the fungi family. It is possible to control fungi with sprays, but the key is to treat your garden before any problems arise.

TIP! Plant perennials that slugs and snails won’t be interested in eating. These creatures can wreak havoc on a garden in a short time.

Irises can be easily divided. Splitting up overgrown groups of irises will allow you to easily increase the number of irises in your garden. Pick up bulbous irises after the foliage dies. The bulbs will split up naturally in your hand, and when replanted, will often flower the next year. Divide up the rhizomes with a knife. You can split the Rhizomes production by cutting off thin portions from the exterior and discarding the remaining insides. Be sure to retain a sturdy offshoot on every piece that you intend to plant. For optimum viability, plant your new cuttings into the ground without delay.

Mixing a variety of plants at different heights is how you can make a very interesting English garden. If plants have the same growth height, the bed will appear flat and not have much interest.

Asprin will actually help your plants out by killing diseases. Try dissolving around one and one half aspirins into around 2 gallons of water for your plants. You simply have to spray the solution on your plants to assist them in warding off diseases. Be sure to repeat this process every two or three weeks.

TIP! Your first and best line of defense against pests is having healthy soil. Healthy plants are stronger and more able to resist both pests and disease.

Being a success at organic horticulture requires patience, effort and a willingness to learn. A hobby that results in growing something delicious to eat. If you are willing to put in the effort and if you follow the tips, you can become a great organic gardener.
