Many people dream of having their own organic garden, but how many actually get around to doing it? Many people mistakenly believe that they lack the ability to cultivate their own flowers, vegetables and houseplants. This article can help you get the tips you need to make the leap into the fun and beneficial world of organic gardening.
Sprouting seeds need less warmth than before. Remove plants from the heated environment once they begin growing. Uncover your containers; the plastic wrap traps humidity, so you need to remove it to stop your plants from overheating. Check on your seeds often so you catch them when they are ready.
Learn to work efficiently. Do not spend half an hour looking everywhere for a tool. Organize the tools you will need before you head to the garden, and put every item away when you finish your work. If needed, purchase a tool belt or heavy duty pants with plenty of pockets.
Pine can make for a great type of mulch. Some garden plants have a higher acidity, and prefer a more acidic soil. There is no better, or easier, way to make your acid-loving plants happy then to use pine needles you already have on your beds. Simply add a layer of pine needles a couple of inches deep to the plant beds. The needles will decompose over time and provide the soil with acidity.
Coffee grounds are a good addition to your soil. Coffee grounds have nitrogen that plants will utilize. 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.
