When you use the correct organic gardening products, techniques, and equipment, it shows. Your caring skills will shine through in the quality of your garden. That is very admirable. Just like most things in life, there are continual ways to improve your skills. Some advice that will be of use to you follows.
To make the most of your time in the garden, you should store all of your tools and implements in a close, accessible location. Large pockets or a sturdy bucket can be used to store tools. Make sure your trowel, pruning shears, gloves and other important tools are always handy. This will allow you to make easy work of your gardening up-keep!
Take your seedlings and saplings to a cooler spot once they are established. Move your plants away from the heat as they grow. Plastic films should be removed on the containers, as that helps to keep out humidity and warmth. Unless you closely monitor your seedlings, you may not move them in time.
You can cover your muddied gardening footware easily by keeping plastic bags around. This allows you to keep going, getting back to your garden quickly.
Keep your compost pile balanced with a combination of dried and green plant mulch. You can use all types of green material in your compost pile, including cut grass, dead flowers, fruit peels and cores, and much more. Dried plant materials are things like shredded newspaper, cardboard, sawdust, straw, and any cut up wood materials. Don’t include ashes, diseased plants, charcoal meat, or carnivorous animal waste.
A good general rule when planting your seeds into containers is that the depth of the planting should be about three times the size of the seed. There are exceptions to this rule, however. Some seeds should remain uncovered because they thrive in direct sunlight. Examples of these are petunias and ageratum. If you’re not sure, a guide either comes with seeds, or you can find this information online.
Try lightly ruffling the seedlings with your hands about twice a day. While this appears strange, research shows it can help plants grow larger, versus not petting them at all.
