The Basics Of Organic Gardening — Ecomasteryproject
Have you ever thought about using organic gardening to enhance the beauty and yield of your garden?
Organic gardening is not as difficult as many beginning gardeners believe it is. It is true there is a bit more work and increased attention levels to the details of an organic garden than a regular garden. However, with the proper guidance you will soon discover it’s not anywhere near as difficult as you thought it was. The basic information in this article will provide the knowledge you need to get a head start on organic gardening.
No matter if you are a beginning gardener or an experienced one, your primary goal is to have the absolute best looking and highest yield garden that you can produce. It really doesn’t make any difference if the garden is going to be for flowers and bushes or a vegetable garden for your own table. One of the best ways to do this is to have an organic garden.
“Wait a minute, what is an organic garden?” you ask. Very simply it means that all natural materials are going to be used to help, whatever you decide to plant, too grow. In other words you want to go “Green” and will not be using artificial additives or sprays to the garden dirt or plants.
You must understand that an all-natural space, for your plants and veggies, is going to take some work and dedication, by you, to prepare the specified area properly. This means you will need to add natural ingredients such as table scraps, scraps of paper, grass cuttings, coffee and tea grinds, etc. to make sure adequate nutrients are in the soil.
Perhaps the most critical thing you must do before anything else is to select the optimum location for your organic garden or for that matter any garden. Your plants will do extremely well if they can receive about six hours of sunlight per day. In almost all cases positioning of your planting area in the southeast part of your ground will give more than adequate amounts of sunshine. Also make sure your ground has easy access to water and the ground has good drainage, to allow water run-off and aeration of the ground
You can join many of the other organic gardeners, around the world, which create their own compost additives using specially designed bins or containers. However, one drawback to this method of compost creation can be the smell as the natural products begin to rot and breakdown. If the stench will cause a problem for you and your neighbors, you can purchase all natural compost from a great many of the nurseries, hardware stores and the garden centers located in your town.
Once you have acquired your on compost, from a retail outlet or your own compost pile, it is time to mix it with the designated area for your garden. The first step obviously is to till or break up the ground so the compost can be added easily and evenly throughout the dirt. Once it’s been added to the broken ground the next step is continue working the dirt so the compost is well blended into the garden. Throughout the next several weeks be sure and water the soil every other day or so, with an occasional working of the dirt. The added moisture and airing of the dirt, will speed up the process of the natural fertilizing of your garden.
As you can see the practice of organic gardening is not difficult. It just takes a little persistence and work on your part to have a more beautiful and high yielding garden.
