Tending your garden is a relaxing way to get some sun and be active. Without the right information, though, it can be confusing. Gardeners have to know not only how to do the actual gardening, but what tools and equipment are most useful. Read this article for some great gardening tips.

Plant seeds in pots that have a rich soil to give them a strong start. This increases the chance that your plants will survive to adulthood. Seeds can’t always thrive in gardens, and are often eaten by birds. Once the fully matured plants are removed, the seedlings can be planted.

Healthy Plants

A garden with a foundation of healthy soil is the best defense against pests. If you are producing healthy plants, they will be stronger and better able to resist bugs and diseases. Begin with a high-quality soil with less chemicals to avoid salt accumulation, and you give your garden an excellent chance of growing healthy plants.

Make sure your soil is healthy enough before you start planting anything. You can get a soil analysis, and if you find your soil needs a supplement, do it! You can often find Cooperative Extension offices that provide this service, which can help to make your garden flourish.

TIP! Transform the handles of your tools into convenient measuring devices. Tools with long handles, such as a shovel or rake, are absolutely perfect for this job, and make your workload a little bit smaller.

Plants need C02 for maximum growth. More CO2 generally produces more luxurious plant growth. Greenhouses help contain C02 to keep levels high. For the best growing conditions you should keep the CO2 levels high.

Knee Pads

If your garden requires a lot of low work, then save yourself some strain by investing in knee pads. When you spend a lot of time kneeling while gardening, your knees can be very achy by the end of the day A pair of good horticulture knee pads can cushion your knees for more comfort.

TIP! Use bulbs to ensure continuous flowers throughout the spring and summer. Not only are bulbs hearty and easy to grow, but they’ll continue to grow as time goes on.

Any time that you are gardening in direct sunlight, dress appropriately to prevent skin damage. Wear hats and sunglasses, and make use of sunscreen. By protecting yourself from the sun’s rays, you lower your risk of getting sunburns or skin cancer.

Use coffee grounds on your soil. Coffee grounds have nitrogen that plants will utilize. Plants need an adequate nitrogen source in order to thrive. Adding coffee grounds, chemical fertilizer, or diluted urea to your soil increases the soil’s nitrogen content and will help to make your plants grow faster, taller and healthier.

A great tip when running your own organic garden, is to lightly ruffle your seedlings with your hand or cardboard, around once or twice per day. However odd this may sound, research shows that this touching encourages seedlings to grow better than they would without touching.

TIP! If you learn that your soil has a high amount of alkaline, mix some used coffee grounds into it. The coffee grounds provide a cheap way to re-supply needed acid to the dirt.

There are many rewards to gardening, but in order to do it correctly, there is a lot that you must know. If you have the proper advice and you plan out your garden correctly, your garden can grow quickly. Take these tips and apply them to your garden and you are going to be overjoyed with the results.
