For some people organic gardening is a fun, relaxing pastime, whereas for others it can be a major headache. The following suggestions will guide you on how to be a very successful organic gardener.
Clay is naturally hard, and can can stick to a shovel making it frustrating to work with. Rub a thin layer of floor or car wax over the surface of the shovel, and then buff the surface using a clean cloth. This will make shoveling in clay soil easier. The clay won’t stick to it, and the end will not rust as an added bonus.
Fall edibles are a wonderful addition to your garden. If you want to find an interesting container for your lettuce or kale, try a pumpkin! Once you cut an opening at the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the insides, spray the inside and edges with Wilt-Pruf to keep the pumpkin from rotting. Once you have completed this, start planting!
Try growing wheat grass or cat grass in the area of the plants your cat wants to eat. You can put something over the soil which surrounds the plants which has a bad smell to cats to deter them.
Plants need ample amounts of CO2 to reach their maximum growth. A higher level of CO2 will help plants grow better. Getting a greenhouse is the best way to get a higher amount. To achieve optimal growing conditions, keep the levels of carbon dioxide high in your plants’ environment.
