If you want to be an organic gardener, you need a green thumb, but more importantly, you need a lot of patience. It is an enjoyable way to grow your own nutritious foods that are free of pesticides and other harsh chemicals. It might sound easy, but is it? Read on for suggestions on what you will need to start gardening like a pro.

Your plants need to adapt and must be gradually introduced to changes in temperature or condition. Try placing them outside in sunlight for about an hour or maybe two the first day. As the week progresses, gradually increase their exposure to the outdoors. When the week is done, your plants will be ready for the big move without any problems.

TIP! Put down sod correctly. Before you use sod, you need to prepare the soil.

Use your tool handles as rulers in the garden. Tools with long handles, such as rakes, shovels or hoes can work as great measuring sticks. Lay the handles upon the floor and use a tape measure along side of them. Label the distances on the handle with a marker pen that will not smear or fade away. This will allow you to have a ruler at your fingertips when you are working out in the garden.

Cover the fences and walls with climbers. Many climbers are so robust that they can cover an unattractive wall or fence in a single growing season. You can direct them over certain branches or boards, or you can send them through plants you already have. Some of these plants must have support, and some can attach themselves to something using their stems and tendrils. There are many varieties you can choose from. Honeysuckle, climbing roses and jasmine are among the best.

Try growing wheat grass or cat grass in the area of the plants your cat wants to eat. You can put something over the soil which surrounds the plants which has a bad smell to cats to deter them.

TIP! There are home solutions available to combat the powdery mildew you may find on your plants. Combine a bit of liquid soap and some baking soda with water.

Aerate and dry your plants each day. Moisture on the surface of a plant can attract parasites, and cause disease. Fungi are a very common and irritating pest in the world of gardening. Be sure to prevent the growth of fungus with a spray that will inhibit their growth.

If you are going to grow peas, start them inside rather then planting them outdoors. When you plant the seeds indoors, your seeds will start to germinate better. The seedlings tend to be healthier, which would help them resist diseases and pests more easily. Transplant them outside when they are fully established and able to thrive.

Take the time to place organic mulch in the area around your vegetable plants. Mulch has a nice moisturizing effect on the soil it’s spread over. This is also efficient in preventing weeds from growing. This will save you a ton of time and work.

TIP! Plant cool-weather edibles in the fall. Instead of using regular clay pots this year for planting lettuce and kale, try a pumpkin container instead! Slice a hole around the stem, and pull the pumpkin top out.

Organic horticulture combines hard work, patience and nature. It makes use of empty land to produce something tasty and healthy. If you put your mind to it, you could become an excellent organic gardener.
