If your thermostat is normally kept lower in winter, you can use a heat lamp to keep your plants warm enough.

Organic Plants

When helping organic plants flourish inside, it is vital to keep in mind how much light is reaching them. The amount of light available can determine which type of organic plants you should grow. For example, if your living area does not provide much natural sunlight, you could grow those plants that only need low to medium amounts of natural light to thrive. If the type of plant does not help, you can always use lights to help.

 

Do you want to kill weeds naturally? Layer sheets of newspaper on the surface of areas where you are trying to control weeds. Weeds can only grow when there is adequate sunlight. Newspapers placed atop weeds will starve them from light and they will eventually die. Newspapers break down nicely over time to become part of the compost. Put mulch over top to increase the attractiveness of the pile.

When maintaining your organic garden, try lightly petting your seedlings — either with the palm of your hand or something like a sheet of cardboard — once or twice each day. While it might sound strange, research has shown that this method can increase the size of your plants.
