Include your children in your efforts to organic gardening. An organic garden will help your child learn more about plants and insects, and it’s a wonderful bonding time while growing healthy produce.

If you are interested in sustainable organic gardening, consider keeping part of your property undeveloped so that wildlife can flourish there. This can be a good area for the types of insects that pollinate plants. It can also be a sanctuary for birds, which will help some plants thrive. This can greatly improve the production of your organic garden.
Make sure you have your gardening tools near you, so you can maximize your gardening efficiency. You can wear an apron or pants that have a lot of pockets, or use a big bucket or can. Keep common tools such as your gloves or your pruning shears within reach so that you can quickly and easily maintain your garden whenever you need to.
Make the most of the time spent in your garden. If it takes you thirty minutes to find a needed tool, then you are doing something wrong. Have all of tools you will need for the day before you head out your garden. When you are finished, put them away neatly for the next time. You may also wish to invest in a tool belt to keep all of your tools within reach while gardening.
Do not overlook the benefits of pine mulch for your garden. Some garden plants are high in acidity, and do better with acidic soil. If that’s the case, the easiest thing to do is use pine needles for beds. Cover the surface of the ground with a two-inch layer of the pine needles; as the needles break down, they will release acid into the soil and nourish your plants.
Add coffee grounds to your garden’s soil. Coffee grounds are rich in nitrogen, an essential nutrient for plant growth. Generally, nitrogen is the limiting nutrient with any plant and having a good nitrogen source either by coffee grounds, compost, or even diluted urea, will make your plants bloom faster and grow taller.
The correct depth for planting seeds in containers is triple the seed’s size. Some seeds shouldn’t be covered and must be in sunlight at all times. Typical examples are petunias and ageratum. If you’re not sure if your seeds need sunlight, you can find out online or through the seeds’ package.
