An organic garden is an interest you have. The timing is perfect, and it is time for you to begin. These tips will help you start an organic garden.
In order not to shock your plants, you have to gradually accustom them to the change of temperature and conditions. Place them outside in the sunlight for an hour or two on the first day. Over a period of several days, slowly increase the time they are allowed to stay outside. By the week’s end, your plants should then be ready for the big move!
Clay is difficult to dig through with a shovel, as it is sticky and compact. To make your digging project easier, apply a coat of automobile wax to your shovel first and then buff it lightly. The clay will slide off of its surface and it will prevent rust.
If you want your garden to blossom with flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant some bulbs in it. Most people have no trouble successfully growing bulbs, and their flowers will return each and every year. Different types of bulbs bloom at different times, so if you choose appropriately, you can have blooms from early spring to late summer.
When fall arrives, it’s time to plant your autumn vegetables. If you’d like to change things up a bit this season, put away your standard clay pots and plant your lettuce and kale inside of a pumpkin instead! Scoop the insides out of the pumpkin, and don’t forget to spray the inside with Wilt-Pruf. This will prevent your pumpkin from rotting. You are prepared to plant after this is done.
If you would love to have access to fresh and healthy mint leaves from your own back yard, but dread the way the plant spreads so quickly, worry not. Keep your mint growth under control by planting them in pots and/or garden containers. You can plant the container into the soil if you want to, but the container will restrict the roots, and make sure that the plant doesn’t run rampant in your garden.
Irises can benefit from being separated. The more you divide clusters of irises, the more your irises will multiply. When you see the foliage is definitely dead, lift up the bulbous irises. You will be able to split the bulb easily and replant it to get more flowers next year. Divide rhizomes with a knife. Cut healthy pieces from the root stalk and throw out the dead center. Make sure that every cutting contains a viable offshoot. You also need to make sure that you replant the new pieces as soon as possible.
Start your garden by planting seed in small pots. Starting with your own seeds is more environmentally friendly than buying plants from a nursery.
