Take A Look At These Organic Gardening Tips! 585

Gardening is as beneficial on a psychological level as it is on an environmental level. Gardening can help us attain a sense of calm and self-sufficiency that is hard to replicate with other activities. By following the tips in this article, even a novice gardener can quickly progress in developing great gardening skills, as well as, peace of mind.

You will need to properly lay sod. Before the sod can be laid, you should prepare the soil. Be sure to get rid of any weeds, and then proceed to break up the soil to get it ready to use. Compress the soil lightly yet firmly, and make certain it's flat. The soil should be adequately moistened. Lay the sod in rows, and make sure the joints do not overlap. The sod should form a flat and firm surface. Fill in gaps with soil. Water your sod daily for a fortnight, which is enough time for it to root and be able to withstand foot traffic.

Organize your garden so that all your plants are exposed to the sun most of the time. Your house or your trees cast shadows: keep in mind that these shadows move throughout the day. You ideally want your plants to be exposed to the sun in the morning and the afternoon, but not around noon, especially in the summer time.

If you have enough space pick one row in your garden to contain an assortment of different vegetables. Try uncommon or unusual crops that you wouldn't want in abundance, but that can liven up a meal that you prepare using your usual crops. Plant crops in this row over time so that you'll always have a selection of vegetables to try.

Diversify the types of plants you grow in your garden. If you only grow one type of plant in your garden and it gets infected with a disease, your whole garden could be wiped out. Also, if you are only growing tomato plants, remember that just 14 tomato plants can yield a year's supply of tomatoes for two people.

Sometimes you will need to re-pot your plants. One good way to check if your plants need re-potted is to turn them over and look at the bottom. If you see many roots, it is time to get it into a new pot. If you see few roots, you may not need to disturb the plant.

For a natural way to control aphids, populate your garden with ladybugs. Ladybugs are natural predators of aphids and scaly bugs. They are pretty to look at, and they are beneficial to your garden. They do not eat flowers, so you can safely use them on your flower beds. This is a good alternative to using commercial pesticides.

To save money on seeds, only use a small portion of the packet. In most cases, only a pinch of seeds are necessary, and seeds can easily be stored for the following year. You can also try splitting seed packets with your neighbors and friends. This is a great way to garden on a budget.

If you want to make plant markers from objects you have around the home, try using old window blinds. Cutting up your old blinds will let you make markers that are almost identical to the ones you'd buy at a store. They're very durable, and should easily be able to survive bad weather.

Pay attention to the temperatures in your garden. When it is early, or late, in the season there is a chance that your plants could be exposed to frost. Freezing temperatures will cause many plants to die, and some that live will not produce at the level they would have otherwise.

These tips should help you plan your organic garden. Follow the best advice and the hopes of spring will be fulfilled in autumn's harvest--with delicious and nourishing meals for you and your family. Nourishing healthy soil, as shown in these tips, can be one of your best investments.
