Organic gardening can be an every day part of your life, but understanding how it works can be hard. You also have a wide variety of seeds that you can select from. With the following steps, you can make sure that you get exactly what you need for your organic garden to grow properly.
Properly lay your sod. Before the sod can be laid, you should prepare the soil. Remove weeds and break your soil until all the clumps are gone. Make sure your soil is flat and compacted. Make sure the soil is moist all the way through. The sod should be laid in staggered rows, with the joints offset from one another. You want the sod to end up as a flat and even surface. If there are any gaps in between the sod pieces, then you can fill these in with some soil. After two weeks of daily watering, the sod should be rooted; at this time, it is now safe to walk on it.
When winter arrives, transfer a few plants into the house for safe storage during the cold weather. Perhaps save the most resistant or expensive plants. Use caution when digging around the roots of your plant. You need to keep the root structure intact for it to thrive after being potted.
When the fall season approaches, you must prepare to plant your favorite fall veggies and other edibles. Instead of using regular clay pots this year for planting lettuce and kale, try a pumpkin container instead! To use the pumpkin as a planter, it is important to prevent it from rotting. To do this, you simply spray the entire inside and any edges with a gardening spray called Wilt-Pruf. This is done after you’ve opened the pumpkin at the top and removed the insides. Now this is completed, it is time to get planting!
Mint is a very tasty herb that has a tendency to run wild in the garden if not kept in check. You can slow down this growth by planting them inside a pot or container! If you prefer, you can even place the container in the ground, but the pot’s walls will prevent the mint from spreading and being a nuisance in your garden.
Be sure your garden is fertilized. Manure can be effective, though you should use products which minimize pathogens. You can choose from many different fertilizers. Do not worry about the kind of fertilizer you end up using but definitely put down something.
Look for evergreen variants that produce berries. They offer terrific color during the dreariest times of the year when nothing else you have planted has any hue remaining. The American Holly, American Cranberrybush, the Winterberry, and the Common Snowberry help provide color during the winter.
