% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Most people are familiar with the idea of organic foods or may have noticed them in food stores. It is fairly easy to see which foods are organic. You can see it on their labels, as well as in their higher prices. Keep reading to learn how you can grow organic produce from the comfort of your own home.

TIP! Add aspirin to your plants to help them fight sickness. Dissolve one aspirin and a half for 2 gallons of water.

If you are interested in sustainable organic gardening, consider keeping part of your property undeveloped so that wildlife can flourish there. This can be a good area for the types of insects that pollinate plants. It can also be a sanctuary for birds, which will help some plants thrive. This can greatly improve the production of your organic garden.

If you’re growing indoor organic plants, you should ensure that you think about how much light is available for them. Ideally, these plants should be kept in a room that offers natural light from a window or glass door. If the type of plant does not help, you can always use lights to help.

TIP! Coat your flower beds with a few inches of an organic mulch. Mulching is the perfect way to lock in moisture, nourish soil, and to keep away weeds.

Keep your gardening tools close by to maximize gardening efficiency. Large pockets or a sturdy bucket can be used to store tools. Keep your gloves, a trowel, small pruning shears and other tools handy and make quick work of your garden maintenance.

After your seeds sprout, the containers do not need to stay as warm as they once did. Remove plants from the heated environment once they begin growing. If you have plastic films on your containers, remove them. Check on your seeds periodically to make sure you know when to remove the films.

TIP! Try to work as efficiently as possible when gardening. Do not waste your time looking for tools.

Make sure you have some plastic bags around so that you can cover any muddy gardening shoes you have. You will save time and be back in the garden much more quickly by doing this.

Do not overlook the benefits of pine mulch for your garden. A number of plants commonly grown in garden settings do best in an acidic soil. Plants like these thrive when you use pine needles as mulch. Using several inches of needles to cover your beds provides acid for the soil as they begin to decompose.

TIP! Put coffee ground into your soil. These coffee grounds have many nitrogenous nutrients that your plants could use.

Do you want to kill weeds in a natural way? Take layers of newspapers and use them for weed control. Weeds can only grow in sunlight. With layers of newspaper on them, the weeds are not going to have light, and therefore will not grow. Because newspapers decompose well with the passage of time, they make great additions to compost. Try adding some mulch on top of it to make appear more attractive.

When planting seeds into a container, the depth of your planting should be three times bigger than the seed. There are exceptions, however. Some types of seeds require more direct sunlight than others, and as such they should not be fully covered. Examples of these are petunias and ageratum. If you do now know how to plant your seed, consult the information that came with the seed when you bought it or check online for helpful information.

TIP! Space is important to remember when planting an organic garden. It is easy to underestimate the amount of space that the plants will take up once they start to grow.

Growing your garden at home might not be the most convenient thing for you, but you will save a lot of money and always have the confidence that what you’re eating and feeding your family is as fresh and as healthy as possible. Use the tips you’ve learned here and get started on your garden today.
