Organic gardening is an activity that a lot of households want to do and think about, but never tackle. Some may feel overwhelmed by all that needs to be done in order to create an organic garden. Follow the advice in this article to make organic gardening a simple and fun activity.
Indoor plants need an environment that is between 65 and 75 degrees. This is the optimum temperature to ensure strong growth. If you do not want to keep your home that warm during the winter months, you can get a heat lamp for the organic plants instead.
Coat your flower beds with a few inches of an organic mulch. A thick layer of mulch will prevent weeds, reduce watering needs and fertilize your garden. As an added bonus, a nice mulch can help make your garden look more finished.
One of the most important things to consider when plotting your garden is to make note of your available space. You will most likely underestimate how much space plants will need as they grow. Space is necessary for the plants, but air circulation is also important. It is, therefore, important for you to plan accordingly and allow for enough room between your seed rows.
Try lightly ruffling the seedlings with your hands about twice a day. You may think it odd, but studies show that this action results in plant growth that is more substantial than would otherwise be achieved.
Try using coffee grounds on the soil. Coffee grounds are filled with nitrogen, that is a nutrient required by plants. Your plants will really bloom if they get the nitrogen they need from coffee grounds or compost or diluted urea.
Applying the knowledge you learned here to your garden will help ensure you have a thriving, toxin-free garden of your very own. You should expect to see more wildlife inhabiting your garden as your garden works more with nature.
