Make Your Garden Special

There are many people who’d like to have their own organic garden. Not many take the time to actually create one. The complexity of it and unfamiliarity with gardening is daunting and even intimidating to many. Check out the tips presented here to get some ideas for ways to start your own organic garden. It can be a rewarding hobby with many benefits.

Clay Soil

TIP! Gradually acclimate plants to temperature changes and conditions, if you want to avoid shocking them. Put them out in the sun for approximately one to two hours on the very first day.

Clay is difficult to dig through with a shovel, as it's sticky and compact. Take the hard work out of using a shovel in clay soil by rubbing a light coat of car or floor wax over the surface with a clean cloth and buff the surface. The wax will enable the clay soil to simply slide off the shovel. Will also prevent the shovel from rusting.

Choose plant strains that'll give you the best harvest with the biggest yield. Many times, a cold-tolerant or disease-resistant hybrid can have a higher yield versus traditional ones.

Plants need C02 for maximum growth. A high level of CO2 provides an optimum environment for growth. The best way to obtain a saturated level of carbon dioxide (CO2) is to use a greenhouse. Higher CO2 levels can provide optimal conditions for growing plants.

TIP! Plant perennials that slugs and snails won’t be interested in eating. Slugs and snails will quickly destroy your garden if you let them.

For flowers throughout the spring and the summer, be sure to plant some bulbs. Bulbs are hearty and will continue to grow every year. You can select bulbs that bloom at many different times. With a little work, you could've flowers popping up all the way from the start of spring to the end of summer.

If growing vegetables, make sure they're in a location in your garden where they'll be exposed daily to at least six hours of the sun. Most vegetables need at least that much sun for optimal growth speed. This is true of some flowers.

Once you know more about organic gardening, getting started shouldn't be so intimidating. If you make proper use of the advice you've learned, you'll soon be able to reap a bountiful harvest from your organic garden.
