Things You Can Do To Improve Your Organic Gardening

 

When you use the correct organic gardening products, techniques, and equipment, it shows. It demonstrates that you want your plants to be healthy and thriving. This is a great thing. With anything else you can always improve. Here is some advice for you.

Indoor plants need an environment that is between 65 and 75 degrees. The plants need this temperature in order to effectively grow. If you don’t want you house to be really warm during the cold season, you could use a heat lamp on organic plants instead.

Growing Plants

If you are growing plants organically indoors, you have to consider the light that they are getting. If you live in a home or apartment that does not get great sunlight you may want to consider growing plants that are designed to grow in low or medium-light environments. If you simply must have a plant that has higher requirements for sunlight, you can use indoor UV lamps.

When your plants begin to sprout, they can survive in somewhat cooler temperatures. To ensure that your plants do not suffer shock, start eliminating the use of a heat source. Remove plastic films on containers to prevent warmth and humidity from penetrating them. Watching your plants as they grow will give you the insight on when to employ these tactics.

Pine can make surprisingly great mulch. Some garden plants are high in acidity, and do better with acidic soil. If you have acid loving plants, use pine needles as a mulch. Lay a few inches of needles over the beds to allow them to decompose and add some acid to your soil.

 

Coffee grounds work great mixed in with your soil. Coffee grounds contain many of the essential nitrogenous nutrients that plants are able to use. It is best for your plants to use coffee grounds that are part of a blend of ingredients in the compost or soil you are using for your plants, rather than directly adding coffee grounds to your garden plants.

Leave plenty of growing space when you plant your garden. As plants grow and spread out, you will not always know how much space will be required. Proper spacing is important not just to accommodate the plants’ sizes but also for air circulation. Make sure your seeds have a good amount of space between each other for optimal growth.
