Are you scared of what chemicals lurk in commercial fertilizer or pesticides? No longer worrying about these toxic chemicals is just one of the many benefits of gardening organically. Also, most methods of organic gardening are fairly inexpensive. Read on for some advice about how to work in your organic garden.
It is important that you give your plants the chance to gradually adjust to the change in temperature and conditions, or you risk shocking them. Try to place them in the new area for a couple of hours at a time the first day. As you continue the first week of the project, gradually extend the duration of sun exposure. After one week, the plants should be fully acclimated and ready to move outside.
Save some plants in the winter by bringing them indoors. This is especially useful if you have a particular plant that you love or was expensive. Dig around roots carefully before transferring to a pot.
Plants all need a good supply of C02 to grow properly! With a high level of CO2 plants will grow much better. Greenhouses provide the best levels of CO2 for plants. A greenhouse will help maintain a high level of CO2 and cause the plants to grow faster.
If you want your garden full of flowers spring through summer, plant bulbs. Bulbs are hardy, easy to grow into flowers, and will blossom for several years. You can select bulbs that bloom at many different times, so with a little work, you could have flowers popping up all the way from the start of spring to the end of summer.
Pre-soak your seeds to keep them healthy. Put a few seeds in a small container and fill it near to the top with water. This lets water soak into the seeds, giving them an extra boost of hydration when they start growing. The seeds will have a better chance of surviving and maturing.
Don’t cut your grass too short! Higher grass sends roots further down, increasing lawn strength and viability. Short grass leads to more shallow roots and will result in more brown, dried-out patches.
If you are going to grow peas, start them inside rather then planting them outdoors. If you plant them inside, they might germinate more effectively. Seeds grown indoors are much more resistant to diseases and damage done by pests. After the seedlings get mature enough, transplant them to your outdoor garden.
You can spray scents such as after-shave and cologne around your garden to deter your dog. These scents overpower the garden’s scents, which causes your dog to lose interest.
A good tip to help your plants stay healthy and fight diseases is to use aspirin water. Crush and dissolve one and one-half 325mg tablets in two full gallons of plain water. All you need to do is spray the plants with the solution in order to battle common ailments. Use this solution once in every three-week period.
