Organic gardening can either be a nice, calming hobby, or a considerable annoyance. Read this article to find out more about this activity.

Plant perennials that are slug-proof. A particularly vulnerable plant can be killed by snails and slugs overnight. These garden vermin prefer plants with tender, herbaceous stems and leaves, particularly seedlings and young plants. Slugs and snails will leave some perennials alone, particularly those with a bad taste or tough, hairy leaves. A few great choices are achillea, campanula, and heuchera. Other options from which you can choose are hellebourus and euphorbia.

TIP! The first thing you can do to avoid pests is to start with healthy soil in your garden. If you are producing healthy plants, they will be stronger and better able to resist bugs and diseases.

Always take the time to get the weeds out of your garden. Weeds can turn a thriving garden into a total wasteland. White vinegar can be a good solution. That’s right, you have safe way to get rid of weeds right there in your kitchen cabinet. Mix white vinegar and water into a spray bottle instead of pulling the weeds by hand.

If your soil has high alkaline amounts, mix some coffee grounds into it. This is an easy and inexpensive solution to increase the acid content back into the soil. You will notice that your vegetables and greens will have a stronger taste.

Try dousing weeds in your garden with boiling water to get rid of them. Boiling water is a safe herbicide which won’t damage your garden or your body. Soak weeds with freshly boiled water, just being mindful to not afflict damage on plants you want to keep. Boiling water can hurt the roots of weeds and can prevent them from growing.

TIP! When fall is here, you need to plant autumn edibles. A pumpkin can be used as a planting container instead of clay pots.

Ensuring your plants are both dry and aerated is a great way to keep them healthy. Many diseases, as well as most parasites, prefer moisture. A common parasite to plants is fungi. To control fungi, use a fungicide spray on the area before you notice any problems.

If you’re a new gardener, it is vital that you follow the instructions when it comes to your chemicals and tools. If you ignore them, you can irritate your skin in most painful ways. Directions, especially safety rules, are there for your own good, so make sure you follow instructions on your tools and chemicals to the letter.

As stated in the above article, many people do not realize how much more there is to organic gardening. It requires patience and work, but it’s worth it to have a successful organic garden. The groundwork of information contained in this article should get you off to a good start.
