As you cultivate your organic garden, think about digging small trenches between the rows of plants. This will help the water to flow directly to the plants, and you will not need to water them as often. You are going to save water and also help to ensure that you have healthy plants.
One of the biggest benefits from eating food that is organically grown is the absence of pesticides. Although this is great for your health, you need to make sure that you check all the produce careful for any bugs or pests before consuming.
Brick, stone or untreated wood is great for building raised beds. Choose wood that is naturally resistant to rot and is untreated. Cypress, locust and cedar are all great examples of what woods to use when building a raised bed. Do not use treated wood in your vegetable garden. If you must use treated wood, create a barrier, such as with plastic sheet.
It only takes a few simple steps to whip up an amazing garden for all of your perennials. Cut into your turf using a spade and then cover the exposed portion with lots of wood chips. In about 2 weeks, you will be able to plant flowers in your new bed.
The best option available to water an organic garden are soaker hoses. Water seeps slowly from a soaker house, and can be aimed right at the roots, leaving leaves dry. They don’t waste water like sprinklers and get the job done much faster than hand-watering does.
Try using soapy water to discourage aphids from bothering your plants. Just spray the entire plant – buds, leaves, and stems – with a light solution of soapy water and follow up with a second spray of clean water.
