Organic products are usually tastier and healthier than other foods. You could save money by growing your own fruits and vegetables instead of getting them from the store. Read on to find out how to build your own organic garden, in your own home!
Make sure to lay the sod properly. Before the sod can be laid, you should prepare the soil. Remove the weeds, then break up the soil into fine tilth. Flatten your soil and make it slightly compact. Afterward, you want to make sure the soil is moistened. The sod should be laid in staggered rows, with the joints offset from one another. Make sure that the sod forms an even, flat surface, and if you have any gaps show between the sod, fill them with a little bit of soil. After two weeks of daily watering, the sod should be rooted; at this time, it is now safe to walk on it.
Consider starting your plants in pots and then planting the seedlings in your garden. They are more likely to survive the transition to adulthood with this method. Seeds can’t always thrive in gardens, and are often eaten by birds. Your seedlings will be ready to be planted when you remove your old mature plants.
If you’re like many gardeners, autumn means that it’s time to get some delicious fall edibles growing in your garden. A hollowed out pumpkin can become a festive container for kale and lettuce. First, cut out the pumpkin’s top layer and remove the seeds. Then, spray some Wilt-Pruf on the insides to prevent the rot that would follow otherwise. After this is completed, it is time to plant!
A set of knee pads are a life saver if you’re an avid gardener and a lot of your plants sit close to the ground. The amount of time that you spend horticulture on your knees can make your knees hurt by the time you are done. Buy yourself a pair of knee pads to use in the garden to cushion and protect your knees.
You could try to boil weeds if you are trying to remain organic. Any vessel of boiling water that you can carry safely can be used as an organic herbicide. Soak weeds with freshly boiled water, just being mindful to not afflict damage on plants you want to keep. The boiling water will damage the roots of the weeds and will usually prevent further growth.
