Grow The Healthy Way - Organic Gardening Techniques

Include your children in your efforts to organic gardening. The benefits for your children will be a closer bond with nature and an understanding of where food comes from. Indoor plants have been bred over time to thrive in temperatures that are characteristic of a home. Most indoor plants like to be in about 70 degree temperatures, plus or minus 5 degrees. Indoor plants grow best at these warm temperatures. 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.

Preparing a plot for planting a perennial garden can be done quickly and without difficulty. With a garden spade, slice under the dirt then flip it over. Next, spread out wood chips several inches deep. Give this area at least a few weeks, then you can dig into the area and plant the new perennials.

Keep your garden tools close at hand to make the most of your gardening time. Keep the tools in a big bucket, or store them in strong pockets in your pants. Keep common tools such as your gloves or your pruning shears within reach so that you can quickly and easily maintain your garden whenever you need to.

Be aware of spacing considerations when you are first planting your organic garden. You must think of how much room the plants will take up as they grow, and it easy to underestimate this. Air circulation and room to grow is important for any plant. It is, therefore, important for you to plan accordingly and allow for enough room between your seed rows.

A rule of thumb for when you are planting seeds in containers is to make the hole depth around three times larger than the seed itself. It is important to note though, that not all seeds are covered to this depth, as some need direct sunlight to grow properly. Some common examples include ageratum and petunias. Always be sure to check online or with the company you’re purchasing the seeds from as to their sunlight needs.

You should now realize how much fun and how enjoyable gardening can be. Having a properly grown garden can be fun and relaxing. If you remember these tips the next time you are in the garden, you will be much more successful.
