There are so many natural alternatives available to you if you want to turn your garden organic. You just need to learn what you can do, and then do it.
If you want a sustainable garden, leave part of it undisturbed as a home for the wildlife in the area. A natural area will allow beneficial birds and insects, many of which pollinate plants, to live on your property and help your garden grow stronger.
Indoor plants need an environment that is between 65 and 75 degrees. They need this type of warm temperature in order to grow. These temperatures may not be comfortable for you, however. As an alternative to keeping your entire home that warm, consider getting heat lamps for your organic plants.
In your flower beds and garden, utilize a few inches of organic mulch. Doing this keeps weeds down, keeps the moisture in your plants, and gives more nutrients to the plants. It will also make your flower beds look more finished.
You should work efficiently, instead of working hard in your garden, to simplify things. Keep all of your tools together; do not waste time looking for them! You can prepare what you need beforehand, keep it all handy in a toolbox or a shed, and you will be ready to work in your garden at a moment’s notice. If needed, purchase a tool belt or heavy duty pants with plenty of pockets.
Pine can be a wonderful mulch. Some plants do better in soil with high acidity as they are highly acidic themselves. When you have plants like this, nothing is easier than to gather pine needles for your beds. Cover your beds with the needles, as they will decompose and disperse their acid throughout the soil.
Coffee grounds are a great addition to soil. Coffee grounds will add nitrogen to your soil which will make them helpful for some of your plants. Coffee grounds as a source of nitrogen for plants are usually limited to acid-loving plants because coffee is acidic. The coffee grounds act as a powerful nitrogen source that will help your plants bloom much quicker.
Anyone can have a garden, but it takes knowledge to have a productive and healthy one. Implement these important concepts in building a truly organic garden.
