There are many all-natural methods out there you can use to grow a bright, vibrant, healthy organic garden. In order to use these methods, all you have to do is learn a little bit about them.
Clay is naturally hard, and can can stick to a shovel making it frustrating to work with. Rub a thin layer of floor or car wax over the surface of the shovel, and then buff the surface using a clean cloth. This will make shoveling in clay soil easier. The wax will help keep dirt from sticking to the shovel, and will also keep the metal from rusting.
Don’t bother with expensive chemicals if your plants start to sport powdery mildew. Instead, combine baking soda with water and liquid soap. Spray the mixture on the plants once every seven days or so until you no longer see the mildew. Baking soda treats the mildew effectively and gently and it won’t damage your plants.
Take the time to remove weeds. If you have weeds in your garden, it will not be as nice as it could be. White vinegar is a pesticide-free way to battle weeds. The acid in white vinegar kills weeds. You may also be using plants that need that very same acid. Spray white vinegar onto those troubling weeds.
While working in your garden during the fall season, watch out for those stink bugs! Stink bugs like to eat beans, peppers, tomatoes, and all sorts of fruit. If you do not keep them under control, the damage can be excessive, so keep an eye out for them.
Gardening is within everybody’s reach, but you will only make the most of your gardening experience with knowledge. Be sure to try out these organic gardening ideas.
