The Secrets To A Perfect Organic Garden
There's no better time than now! If you'd like more information on gardening, this article can serve as a starting point for you. Below you'll find some handy tips to jumpstart your gardening aspirations.
Choose perennials that won't be taken out by slugs. Snails and slugs can destroy plants in just one night. These garden pests prefer perennials with thin, flat, delicate leaves, particularly if the plant is not yet mature. Perennials that have tough or hairy leaves are often times unappetizing to snails and slugs. Some perennial families that snails and slugs won't eat include achillea, campanula, and helleborus.
Transplanting plants and bringing them indoors can protect them from harsh winters. It's a good idea to save any expensive plants or those that will thrive in indoor heat. Dig around the roots carefully and transfer the plant to a pot.
During fall, you should plant cold weather vegetables. Why not plant lettuce and kale inside a hollowed-out pumpkin? First, cut out the pumpkin's top layer and take away the seeds. Then, spray some Wilt-Pruf on the insides to prevent the rot that would follow otherwise. You can now use the pumpkin as a planter.
Spray fragrances such as old perfume or aftershave on grass around your garden to keep your dog away from the plants. This will work to mask any scent that is attracting dogs, and will make the garden a much less interesting place to for dogs to be.
If you are gardening, be skeptical of stink bugs in your garden, especially in the autumn. These destructive pests enjoy many kinds of fruit, as well as beans, peppers and tomatoes. Unless you check, they do a lot of damage to plants so try to get rid of them if you can.
You are now one step closer to fulfilling that ambition and beginning your garden. You although you had mad skills before. Now you have insane skills! Ideally, you will be able to start gardening with much greater success after using these tips.
