Organically grown produce is superior to the produce found in local supermarkets, and is also tasty and healthy for your body. Try growing your own organic produce instead of spending a bundle. This article will show you how to plan an organic garden right in your own yard.
When selecting among several varieties of a plant, choose the ones that will produce the largest yield. There are genetically modified plants that resist cold and/or disease. These often give higher yields due to higher survival rates.
Choose perennials that won't be taken out by slugs. Snails and slugs can destroy plants in just one night. Young plants with susceptible leaves are favorite meals for slugs, including those with smoother or thinner leaves. Some perennials, however, leave a bad taste in slugs' mouths or are difficult to chew through because their leaves aren't tender. Good choices in this category are plants such as achillea, campanula, and euphorbia. Heuchera and helleborus also work well.
Plant a variety of annuals, biennials and perennials to keep your flower beds bright. You can use biennial and annual flowers to brighten the bed, and let you change how it looks. They are very helpful when trying to fill in gaps between shrubs and perennials in an area that is sunny. There are many different varieties to choose from such as daisies, marigolds, impatiens, and lantana.
When winter arrives, you can save some plants by placing them in your home. You should probably save the most resistant or expensive plants. Dig the plant up without damaging the roots and place it a big enough pot.
Before planting seeds, soak them overnight. Place them in a cupboard or other place where they won't be exposed to light. Soak the seeds by placing them in a container where they are covered with water. This hydrates your seeds and jump-starts their growth. Your seeds will then have the best chance possible to survive to maturity.
You will no longer have to purchase your produce. You can grow your own vegetables and fruits in your organic garden.
