In order for you to have a successful organic garden, you will need to take really good care of it. This can be achieved by using smart, eco-savvy gardening techniques. Educating yourself on this topic will help you create a garden that offers healthy and tasty produce. So, take heed of this advice so that your organic garden is the one that shines.

TIP! You can use the wooden handles of your tools as measurement sticks. Tools that have long handles such as rakes, hoes and shovels can be used in place of a measuring stick.

Use climbers to cover walls and fences. Climbers have many different uses and spread quickly. They can also grow through existing shrubs or trees, or be trained to cover an arbor. Some require a support, while other climbers attach to surfaces using twining stems or tendrils. Some of these plants include, wisteria, jasmine, climbing roses, clematis, honeysuckle!

TIP! When you go to mow your lawn, make sure you don't mow it too closely to the ground. If you let your grass keep some height after mowing, it will be able to absorb more sun and moisture resulting in a lusher, greener lawn.

When winter arrives, transfer a few plants into the house for safe storage during the cold weather. You might want to transplant your most valuable varieties. Carefully dig near the roots and transfer those plants into a flower pot.

TIP! The best way to start a garden is from first principles: seeds. When you begin a garden, it's most eco friendly to do so with seed.

If beautiful flowers throughout the warmer months are important to you, make sure you put bulbs into the ground. Bulbs will grow every year and are easier to take care of than seeds. If you choose your plants carefully, you could have flowers in blossom from the first weeks of spring to the end of the summer.

TIP! It is possible to use natural materials as well as other plants to help keep pests away from your garden. Onions and marigolds can get rid of pests in the garden.

In a place that's dark, pre-soak the seeds. Put some seeds (a small amount) in a container that isn't too large for the plant you'll be growing. Fill that container with water, almost to the top. The seeds will get the hydration they need to start growing. This way, the seeds you have planted will have some chance of growing.

TIP! Every good gardener knows when the best time is to begin harvesting one vegetable or the other. Different vegetables and fruits have their ideal seasons and months where they flourish, survive, and are harvested at the highest quality.

Before you start planting your garden, plan it out. Doing so means you can remember where each particular plant is when you start seeing sprouts arise from the earth. It can also aid in identifying the less prominent fledgling plants that lie withing a larger landscaped garden.

TIP! If you have a vegetable garden, it can be quite difficult to decide what to do about pest control. Avoid using a bunch of harsh chemical pesticides in your garden.

Whether you have been horticulture for a few days or a few decades, you must never deviate from the instructions on the labeling of all implements and chemicals. Failure to follow instructions can be dangerous or painful. For example, some chemicals will irritate your skin if you don't follow safety rules. Protect yourself and follow all instructions.

TIP! Don't use pesticides that aren't meant to kill specific types of garden pests. These kinds of pesticides kill the helpful insects that destroy the pests.

As you've read, you can grow fresher, more nutritious produce in your organic garden than you can get from other sources. You'll have to put in a lot of effort and be patient, but the results organic horticulture can give you are worth all the work.
