All it takes to grow an organic garden is a few natural growing methods. You just need to learn what you can do, and then do it.
Aspirin water has disease-prevention properties that can protect plants. Crush and dissolve one and one-half 325mg tablets in two full gallons of plain water. All you need to do is spray the plants with the solution in order to battle common ailments. Give your plants a spray of the aspirin-water mixture about one time every three weeks.
To be most efficient in your gardening, always keep your tools close at hand. Carry a large bucket with you or wear pants with a lot of pockets. Tools you’ll need to garden efficiently include towels, gloves, pruning shears and other plant-specific tools.
It is common knowledge that grounds from brewed coffee are good for soil. Coffee grounds have nitrogen that plants will utilize. It is best for your plants to use coffee grounds that are part of a blend of ingredients in the compost or soil you are using for your plants, rather than directly adding coffee grounds to your garden plants.
Try not to let the chores associated to your organic garden build up. While you may not be able to spend a lot of time every day in your garden, even little items done daily will stop the mountain of work from growing. For example, pull a few weeds if you’re outside and waiting for your dog to finish his business.
To get the most from your composting efforts, aim for a 1:1 ratio of dried materials and green plant products. Green plant material includes grass clippings, spent flowers, vegetable and fruit waste, weeds and leaves. Paper and straw are dry plant materials. You should not use things like meat scraps, charcoal, blighted plants or the manure of meat-eating animals in your compost.
Do you want to know how to kill weeds in a natural way? You should layer some newspaper to get weeds under control. Weeds can only grow when there is adequate sunlight. If you put a thick layer of newspaper on them, weeds will not be able to get light or air, and they will die! Newspapers easily break down over a period of time, and eventually become a portion of the compost. It can look more attractive by adding a mulch layer.
