Getting The Most From A Vibrant Organic Garden


If you want to improve your diet, you should think about organic horticulture. However, effort is required in order to effectively grow. Oftentimes, new gardeners can be intimidated because they’re not quite sure where to start.

Take the proper approach to laying sod. Your soil should be prepared before you lay the sod. Pull all the weeds and loosen the soil so the new roots can take easily. Flatten the soil back into place, gently but firmly. The soil should be adequately moistened. Then lay the sod in staggered rows so the joints are offset. Pat your sod to form an even and flat surface, fill any gaps with some soil. Once it is in place, the sod requires frequent watering for at least two weeks. This is usually the amount of time it takes for the sod to grow roots, making it ready to grow seamlessly into place.

During winter, you should take your favorite plants inside. You can save the ones you spent the most money on or the ones that are resistant. Carefully dig near the roots and transfer those plants into a flower pot.

Before actually putting plants into your garden, check the type and compostion of your soil. Many nurseries offer a soil analysis service, which will tell you what nutrients your soil is lacking and what you can do about it. Save yourself the trouble of a failed crop by contacting your local Cooperative Extension to preform the soil test.
