Organic gardening may be a major pain, or a joyous hobby. The following tips will assist you in becoming an accomplished organic gardener.
Digging in clay soil with a shovel can be very difficult. The clay isn’t easy to work with and will adhere to the shovel, which only makes the problem worse. 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. This will both make the clay fall off of the surface, and prevent the surface from rusting.
Use proper soil for the best results. The type of plants you’re planning to grow will determine the type of soil you need, and whether the soil will or will not be adapted. You can also make an artificial area using only one type of soil.
If you want flowers in spring and summer, plant bulbs in the garden. Typically, bulbs are simple to grow, and they’ll grow every single year. Find out which flowers will bloom when and then plant a variety, so that you can have fresh blooms all the way through the spring and summer!
Cooling weather of early fall signals the opportune time to plant seasonal edibles. Try using a pumpkin as a natural plant pot. You can plant fall vegetables such as lettuce in an empty pumpkin shell. Once you cut an opening at the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the insides, spray the inside and edges with Wilt-Pruf to keep the pumpkin from rotting. Once you have finished, you can begin planting.
