There are a number of methods available that will allow you to create your own thriving, healthy organic garden. All you need to do is find out what they are, and then use them.
A garden needs the right type of soil to grow properly. Have a soil report done. It is cost effective and you can make necessary adjustments, based on the report, to your soil so it is correctly enriched to encourage plant growth. A lot of cooperative extension offices can provide this service to you and it is worth knowing what you need to do in order to avoid ruining your plants.
Bulbs are a great option for people who want to enjoy spring and summer flowers. Bulbs are one of the easiest plants to grow and are hardy perennials that return each year. Specific types of bulbs usually bloom at specific times of the season, so if you make appropriate selections, you can be rewarded with blooms from the early part of spring to the later part of summer.
Knee pads are absolute miracle accessories if you work in a garden with plenty of low-growing plants. Spending lots of time on your knees while gardening can injure them and create lasting pain. Cushion your knees with a pair of gardening knee pads.
You could try to boil weeds if you are trying to remain organic. Water is cheaper than chemical herbicides, and less hazardous to humans and soil. Just pour out the water on the weeds being careful to avoid any nearby plants. What this does it essentially kill the weeds by damaging their roots. The result is that those weeds are unlikely to regrow.
Fresh mint is a wonderful addition to a herb garden, but it can quickly take over your entire yard. Instead of planting mint in your garden, keep it in a large container or pot to prevent it from spreading. You have the option of planting the container with the plant to keep the roots from taking the garden over.
Put a couple of inches of organic mulch around each of your vegetable plants. Mulch helps the soil surrounding the plants remain moister for a longer time. This method will also prevent weeds. Your plants will receive extra water and nutrients, and you’ll spend less time dealing with weeds.
Any person can create a garden. However, only those who possess the right information will receive the most benefit from their garden. Use what you have learned to make your garden grow!
