There are many all-natural methods out there you can use to grow a bright, vibrant, healthy organic garden. All you need to do is educate yourself about organic gardening, and take advantage of the tips available.

TIP! The quick and drastic change in the weather conditions can shock your plants and cause them to die. It’s important that you gradually change temperate conditions over time, so that your plants can adjust.

When laying sod, it is important that you do it correctly. Before laying the sod, have your soil prepared. Eradicate any weeds and work the soil until it is very fine. Compress the soil lightly yet firmly, and make certain it’s flat. Gently sprinkle water on the soil until you are certain that it is thoroughly moistened. Sod must be arranged in staggered rows; each joint should offset one another. Press the sod down firmly so that the surface is flat and even. If there are gaps remaining, fill them with a bit of soil. According to your climate, you will likely need to water the new sod daily over a period of a couple of weeks. This will insure proper root formation and establishment.

TIP! Clay soil makes working with a shovel difficult. The clay is hard and sticks to the shovel.

Healthy soil will also assist in your battle against pests. If you have healthy looking plants, they are stronger and more resistant to diseases and bugs. High-quality soil that is low on chemicals is key. It’s the first thing you should think about when planning on growing your garden.

Stink Bugs

TIP! Deciduous shrubs need protection from the cold. If you have a few potted shrubs, they should be shielded from the wintry weather.

When horticulture, beware of stink bugs and other insects, particularly in the autumn. Stink bugs like to eat beans, peppers, tomatoes, and all sorts of fruit. They can do serious damage in your garden, so look for an effective method of reducing their population.

TIP! A good but unusual organic solution for weeding your plants is try “boiling” your weeds way. This is a safe way to eliminate weeds, as this will not damage the soil.

When autumn has arrived, you must plant everything you want to eat before winter. Instead of using regular clay pots this year for planting lettuce and kale, try a pumpkin container 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 can start planting now.

TIP! If you decide to grow peas, think about planting them indoors when you first start them off, as opposed to planting them outdoors. When the plants are started inside, the seeds will have an easier time germinating.

Keep your plants dry and aerated daily. Moisture can be a magnet for disease and parasites on your plants. Fungi is the most common parasite for plants. Fungi can be controlled with fungicide sprays, but it is important to treat your area with the spray, before you see any problems.

Horticulture can be done by anyone, but only those armed with the proper information can get the most from their organic garden. Try using these organic tips.
