Organic gardening can either be a wonderful hobby, or a nuisance nightmare. This list of tips should help you become a successful organic gardener.
It may be helpful to let your plants begin their life in a pot and to transfer them to your garden when they're seedlings. Your plants will be more likely to mature this way. In addition, it offers you a smaller time frame between plantings. As soon as the mature plants are removed, you can replace them with fresh seedlings.
Turn the handles of your garden tools into measuring rulers. It is possible to utilize tools with long handles, such as rakes, hoes and shovels, as measuring sticks. Just run some measuring tape right on the floor next to the handles. Label the distances on the handle with a marker pen that will not smear or fade away. The next time you find yourself in your garden, you will have one large ruler right at your fingertips.
If you want flowers in spring and summer, plant bulbs in the garden. These are hearty choices, choices that will reward you for years despite the little effort that is involved in their care. Specific types of bulbs usually bloom at specific times of the season, so if you make appropriate selections, you can be rewarded with blooms from the early part of spring to the later part of summer.
Soak the seeds and store in a dark area overnight. Place a small amount of seeds in a little container, while filling it to the brim with water. This will allow your seeds to be hydrated and get a head start when growing. This gives the seeds a better chance of flourishing.
