One great way to improve your diet and give yourself a fun an interesting hobby is to plant an organic garden. It does, however, require a great deal of effort to grow. Perhaps you are hesitating about where to begin.
Choose higher yield plant varieties. Frequently, a hybrid plant will produce a higher yield because of its disease-resistant properties.
Give your flower beds a boost by introducing annuals and biennials. These biennials and annuals are fast-growing, and they allow you to brighten up your flower bed with a change for each season. They are very useful for filling in the gaps between perennials and shrubs in a sunny area. The most popular varieties to use include petunia, zinnia, cosmos, snapdragon, marigold, hollyhock, and sunflower.
For a garden that thrives, choose the right type of soil. Different types of plants require different soils, so check soil requirements for the ones you choose. You can also create an artificial area with only one kind of soil.
Plants need C02 for maximum growth. Most plants grow better in higher levels of CO2. A great way to reach these CO2 levels is through a greenhouse. Make sure to keep CO2 levels high to provide the best growing environment for your plants.
When the fall season arrives, it is time to plant your fall edibles. Instead of using regular clay pots this year for planting lettuce and kale, try a pumpkin container instead! Clean out the pumpkin just like you would if you were making a jack o’lantern. Spray Wilt-Pruf inside the pumpkin and along its edges so that the pumpkin won’t rot. Now you can use the pumpkin as a planter.
Try growing wheat grass or cat grass in the area of the plants your cat wants to eat. You could also repel your pet by planting rosemary or placing citrus fruit peels around your garden.
Prior to planting a garden, think through what you want to do. Use your seed packages to make fun markers that will remind you where each type of plant is growing. This is important, because different plants require different care.
You can grow a great organic garden if you decide to dedicate your time and efforts to it. For the best results, you need to be dedicated to the work. If you keep the tips provided here in mind, you can find your way to organic horticulture success. Enjoy your harvest!
