When you properly apply organic gardening techniques, your garden will show great results. Your caring skills will shine through in the quality of your garden. These are worthy goals. However, you can always find new things to learn about, and improve your skills. Here are some suggestions that can help.
Having a garden of perennials can be an easy and quick process. Using a garden spade, dig underneath the turf and flip it. Then, create a layer of wood chips at least three inches deep over the area you just flipped. After a few weeks, you can then dig into the turf and plant the perennials of your choosing.
You’ll save time and energy if you keep tools nearby while working in your garden. Carry a large bucket with you or wear pants with a lot of pockets. A gardener’s tool belt will allow you to keep your gardening gloves and other tools close by while you are working in your garden.
Do not underestimate pine as great mulch. Some garden plants are high in acidity, and do better with acidic soil. If that’s the case, the easiest thing to do is use pine needles for beds. Cover soil beds with a few inches of pine needles, and they will disperse acidity to the soil below as they decompose.
You should always take spacing into account when placing plants in your organic garden. You will most likely underestimate how much space plants will need as they grow. The plants will inevitably need to unfurl and spread, but they also need the circulation of air from open spaces. If you put enough thought into your garden, you will enjoy more impressive results.
Don’t let all the little chores in your organic garden build up. Even if you are too busy to tend to your gardens needs every day, you can try little things that will prevent you from having a lot of work when you return to your garden. While you are with your pet outside, pull some weeds while the pet does its business.
