Ready to grow your own organic garden but unsure of what is the best way to proceed? Don’t worry, here are some wonderful organic gardening tips! This collection of hints should provide you with practical advice that can be used in many settings.
An easy way to transport tools to and from the garden is to use an old golf bag. Many golf bags have a stand built into them so it makes grabbing and organizing the tools a breeze. Use the pockets in the sides of the bag to store all kinds of assorted gardening tools, seeds, and gloves, or just use them to store a refreshing beverage.
Plant crops compatible with each other in order to add even more efficiency to your garden. Plant crops that take longer to mature next to faster-growing varieties. You can also get ahead of the season by planting cooler climate crops in the shade of larger summer crops. Greens such as lettuce do great in the shade of a large tomato plant.
If you do not want to expose your family to harmful pesticides in your garden, consider using organic pesticides. Organic pesticides do not have the harmful chemicals commonly found in ordinary pesticides. Fragrant herbs like rosemary, basil, and mint are often disliked by pests, and they are good choices to plant around your garden to ward off pests.
Buy Diatomaceous earth as an alternative to toxic pesticides or adding predatory insects to your garden. Diatomaceous earth is natural, organic, and non-toxic as well as inexpensive and easy to find. It is a green way to keep pests under control. Sprinkle over the surface of soil and water as normal.
So, whether you are a new or experienced gardener, you’ve now got some ideas that you can implement in your garden. Few things in life are more satisfying than working the soil, and it’s even more satisfying when you can do it nature’s way.
