Many people are beginning to enjoy growing an organic garden. The easy to follow advice in this article will show you how to get out there and start planting. Use the tips and tricks here to help see great result in your new, environmentally-friendly organic garden.

Plant perennials that slugs and snails won’t be interested in eating. Snails and slugs can quickly wreak havoc on a garden. These pests normally go after plants with thin little leaves and plants that have yet to fully mature. Certain perennials are unappetizing to slugs and snails, especially those with tough, hairy leaves or an unappetizing taste. Examples of these slug-proof plant varieties include achillea, euphorbia, and helleborus, to name a few.

TIP! Take the proper approach to laying sod. Your soil should be prepared before you lay the sod.

Don’t bother with expensive chemicals if your plants start to sport powdery mildew. All you need to do is mix baking soda with a tiny bit of liquid soap in with some water. Spray this onto your plants about once per week or until it subsides. This mixture will not hurt your plants and it will eliminate the mildew slowly but efficiently.

For proper optimum growth, plants require sufficient amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). With a high level of CO2 plants will grow much better. The best way to get a lot of it is through a greenhouse. It’s best to keep CO2 levels high for the best growth of your plants.

Be diligent in your efforts to banishing weeds! Unwanted weeds fight for the same nutrients that more desirable plants do, and they also are unsightly. A simple tool that is useful in removing weeds is white vinegar. It can kill weeds. By placing a white vinegar solution in a spray bottle, you can spray the weeds away instead of having to pull them out manually.

TIP! Turn the handles of tools you have on hand into rulers to make measurements in your garden. Tools that can be used for more than one task are quite handy to own.

If you want your garden to sport flowers in the spring as well as summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs are generally very simple to grow and hearty, as well; they will continue to grow for years. Include a variety of plantings to get a full season of flowers, from early bloomers to late-season varieties.

Tempt your cat away from the plants he has been bothering by planting catnip or wheat grass near them. Additionally, use your cat’s keen sense of smell to your advantage. Citrus fruit peels and mothballs both smell horrible to cats, so put them on the soil near the plants your cat likes to eat.

An organic garden takes time and patience, as we have previously advised. Head out to the garden, and make use of these tips to turn it into an amazing organic masterpiece. The tips in this article will lead to great success no matter which varieties you choose to grow.
