Organic gardening can either be a major headache, or a very relaxing hobby. The following tips will assist you in becoming an accomplished organic gardener.
Choose plants that will give you the most yield at harvest time. A hybrid designed for your weather, and resistant to local diseases, will give a better yield than non-hybrids.
When winter comes, you can save a few plants by transferring them inside the house. Perhaps you can save your most expensive or resistant plants. Carefully dig near the roots and transfer those plants into a flower pot.
For the right results, get the right type of soil. What plants you desire determines what type of soil you need in your garden, and whether or not it needs to be amended. You can designate one area of your garden to use one specific type of soil.

Pour boiling water over the weeds to kill them, but make sure not to pour the water over any plants you don’t want to kill.
