A great horticulture tip to use is to always select types of plants that are more likely to produce a high yield. Hybrids are usually hardier in terms of disease and weather resistance, and are designed to produce more.
If powdery mildew appears on your plants, don’t purchase expensive chemical solutions. All it takes is a liquid soap, water, and baking soda mixture. Use a spray bottle to apply to your plants weekly until the issue clears up. The baking soda is harmless to your plants and a very effective remedy.
If you want the best results, you need to choose the right soil. You may need to alter the kind of soil you use based on the types of plants you intend to grow. It can happen where one artificial area is designated to have just one type of soil.
Before you even place the first plant in your garden, you need to check the composition of your soil. Pay a small fee to have your soil analyzed, and you’ll be glad that you did when you understand what nutrients your soil is lacking. You can often find Cooperative Extension offices that provide this service, which can help to make your garden flourish.
Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is essential to the growth of plants because of its role in photosynthesis. With a high level of CO2 plants will grow much better. A greenhouse has the best levels available. CO2 levels, when kept high, give your plants optimal growing conditions.
Grow some plants that cats like to eat – try catnip or wheat grass. Offensive smells also work to repel cats and other pesky animals from eating your plants. Try putting mothballs, citrus peels, garlic and other pungent items on the topsoil.
Prior to planting your garden, devise a plan. This way, you will remember the places you planted your seeds when they start sprouting. You are also less likely to lose smaller members of the larger garden in the overall mix.
Now you know a little more on how you can be a successful organic gardener. There is much to do and only a few particular ways to do it best, at the right time and under the most suitable conditions.
