Aspirin water will strengthen your plants against diseases. Crush and dissolve one and one-half 325mg tablets in two full gallons of plain water. Spray this mixture onto your plants. Use this solution once in every three-week period.
Preparing the soil for your perennial garden is easy. All you need to do is use a garden spade to slice under the turf, flip it over, then spread wood chips over the area about three to four inches deep. Let the area sit for a couple weeks, then begin digging into it and planting your new perennials.
After your seeds have sprouted, heat lamps are not needed. Sprouting plants can be removed from the heat source. Remove plastic films on containers to prevent warmth and humidity from penetrating them. Check on your seeds periodically to make sure you know when to remove the films.
Use about two to three inches of organic material as mulch in all of your flower beds. This will help to inhibit weed growth, helps to lock in moisture, and adds needed nutrients to your organic garden. This will also make your flowers appear beautiful and finished all year long.
Be efficient when working in your garden. Don’t waste your time by searching high and low for that packet of seeds or spade. Have all of your tools gathered and prepared for use before you work in the garden, and make sure to put them away neatly. You can use a tool belt, or you may want to wear pants with extra pockets.
Pine is a mulch that is great. Some plants are more acidic, and prefer soil that contains higher acidic levels. If you have some of these plants, then pine needles are an easy way to add acid to their bed. Cover your beds with the needles, as they will decompose and disperse their acid throughout the soil.
