If you want a healthy organic garden, you have many options. You just need to learn what you can do, and then do it.
If you are interested in sustainable organic gardening, consider keeping part of your property undeveloped so that wildlife can flourish there. Most likely, you will find your organic garden producing better once your property is home to the insects, birds, and other wildlife that plants rely on for pollination and the production and dispersal of seeds.
If you’re growing plants indoors, keep your thermostat around 65 or 75 degrees daily. They need the temperature to be that warm so that they can grow. If you want to save money on gas bills in the winter, you can provide local heating for the plants with a heat lamp instead.
Your compost pile should contain green plants and dried ones in equal amounts. Green plant mulches include everything from fresh grass clippings, to unwanted vegetables, to recently pulled weeds. Your dried material can be things such as sawdust, paper shreds, wood shavings, straw and cardboard. Charcoal, meat, ashes or other diseased plants should not be included in a compost pile.
Have your gardening tools near you to minimize the time spent searching for them. For example, you could use an over-sized tote bag or an apron with multiple pockets. A gardener’s tool belt will allow you to keep your gardening gloves and other tools close by while you are working in your garden.
Cover your flower beds with two or three inches of compost or organic mulch. This fights weeds, retains moisture, and gives your garden valuable nutrients. Mulch will also improve the general appearance of your flower beds.
