Organic Gardening 101: Everything You Need To Know
You desire a vibrant and healthy organic garden. Now’s the time! To follow is plenty of useful advice to get your organic garden underway.
Get a slug-proof variety of perennials. A particularly vulnerable plant can be killed by snails and slugs overnight. These garden pests prefer perennials with thin, flat, delicate leaves, particularly if the plant is not yet mature. Others, though, are disliked by slugs and snails. Those with rough leaves or an unappetizing taste will be less desired by slugs and snails. Some of examples of these are achillea, heuchera, campanula, helleborus, and euphorbia.
Plant a variety of flowers to keep your flower garden colorful and interesting. Annuals and biennials can add excitement and interest to your flower garden every season. Annuals and biennials that grow quickly can really wake up your flower beds, and they allow you to have a new garden look every season or every year, if you choose to. They are very helpful when trying to fill in gaps between shrubs and perennials in an area that is sunny. Attention-getting options exist such as sunflowers and petunias.
Keep your plants thriving through the winter by bringing them inside. Maybe you’d like to save the most expensive plants you have or the most resistant. Carefully dig around the rootball and replant in an appropriate pot.
To help young plants, try pouring boiling water on top of nearby weeds. A boiling pot of water is one the best and safest herbicides you can find. All you need to do is apply boiling water right to the weeds you want to get rid of. Be careful not to get any on the plants you want to keep. The weeds’ roots will be damaged by the boiling water; normally, this prevents them from continuing to grow.
Are fresh mint leaves something you love but cannot stand how quickly they grow all over your garden? Stunt their growth a little by planting your mint into a garden container or large pot instead. 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.
