When fruits and vegetables are organic, they taste great and are more rich in nutrients than the standard produce you’ll find at your grocery store. So instead of purchasing organic produce, why not try growing your own? Read on to find out how to build your own organic garden, in your own home!
Digging in hard clay soil is made even more difficult because it sticks to the shovel. Make your shoveling job easier by lightly coating a shovel with a layer of wax, then buffing the surface. Either car wax or floor wax will work just fine. Not only will the clay slide off the surface, but it will keep the end from rusting.
Plants that climb can hide fences and walls. Many climbers can cover the wall or fence in as little as one growing season. You don’t have to worry about removing trees between the climbing plants and the fence, because the trees don’t present obstacles to the climbers’ growth. Some people use climbers as a natural “ceiling” to arbors. Some need to be tied to a support, whereas certain climbers attach themselves to a surface with tendrils or twining stems. Some of these plants include, wisteria, jasmine, climbing roses, clematis, honeysuckle!
Plant a little catnip or wheatgrass in the area surrounding the plants that your cat is devouring. You could also place something that will cause your cat to go away from your plants, such as citrus peels or mothballs.
Do you enjoy fresh mint, but don’t like how they engulf your garden in their growth? Keep the growth under control by growing them in a large horticulture pot instead. By using a separate containment unit, you are limiting the plant’s ability to spread its roots and subsequently grow like wildfire. You can even plant the entire pot so that it still looks just like another plant in your garden.
Plan your garden, and plant with fall colors in mind. That need not be the case though! The autumn season can be one of the best growing seasons and is certainly the most colorful. Maple, beech, and dogwood display colors ranging from dark crimson to light yellow. Shrubs such as cotoneaster, hydrangea, and barberry will also provide a splash of color in the fall.
If you have an organic garden and children, plant some everbearing strawberries for them. A lot of children not only love to pick out their own fruit but they also love to learn about it as well.
Asprin will actually help your plants out by killing diseases. Dissolve one and one-half aspirins into two gallons of cold water, and use it to fortify your plants. Next, coat the plant with the aspirin mixture by spraying it on the leaves. Your plants should be sprayed one time each three weeks.
When you are cultivating an organic garden inside, you should think about the lighting situation. 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. You can also get special lamps if you want a different kind of plants.
