If you want your children to enjoy your organic garden, plant some tasty strawberries. Strawberries are a favorite of children due to their sweetness. And since they’re so easy and fun to pick, it’s also a healthy, productive, safe activity that children can assist adults with.
If you are growing your organic plants inside of your home or office, it is vital to make sure that the right amount of light reaches them. If your windows are small or receive little light due to their positioning, a plant that requires little sunlight will be more comfortable and healthy. If you already have plants that need full light and the natural light provided is not sufficient, artificial lights can supplement their needs.
To be most efficient in your gardening, always keep your tools close at hand. Keep the tools in a big bucket, or store them in strong pockets in your pants. You should always have your gloves, pruning shears and a trowel close to you.
Believe it or not, pine makes great mulch. Some plants are more acidic, and prefer soil that contains higher acidic levels. There is no better, or easier, way to make your acid-loving plants happy then to use pine needles you already have on your beds. Covering your plant beds with a layer of pine needles will allow the pine needles to disperse their acidic nutrients into the soil for your plants.
Be aware of spacing considerations when you are first planting your organic garden. It’s common to not think about how much space a plant will need once it’s full grown, and you don’t want to crowd your garden. You need to take into account the plant’s size when it is fully grown, as well as allowing space for air circulation between each plant. Plan your garden carefully and leave enough space between the seeds.
