Grow some garlic that is organic. Wait until early spring or the fall to plant cloves in a moist soil. Each clove should be planted end-up, four inches apart and between one and two inches below the surface of the soil. As the garlic shoots grow, you can snip them and use them for cooking. You know your bulbs are ready when they turn brown on their tops. Leave the bulbs out to dry and exposed to the sun for a few days so that the skin hardens a bit. Store them in a cool place, tied in bunches or loose.
If you want to do some organic gardening, plan ahead. Decide exactly which plants you’re going to grow. Not all plants thrive well in the same environment. For instance, a number of kinds of roses are available, but some will grow and bloom in your garden whereas others won’t. Be sure to pick the varieties that will work in your environment.
Organic material piled three inches deep is an effective mulch in your flower gardens. A thick layer of mulch will prevent weeds, reduce watering needs and fertilize your garden. Your flower beds should also look beautiful all year long.
When setting up an organic garden, plant tomatoes three weeks apart. The reason for this is because it helps to prevent the entire harvest from producing all at once. You will also prevent your vegetables from being ruined all at once by an unexpected frost or an infestation.
Start using these tips right away, and you will be able to enjoy all of the benefits of a healthy, pollutant free organic garden in no time. When you work to keep your garden in tune with nature, you’ll also see more birds and animals stop by for a visit.
