So, you’ve made it.
You’re ready to get into organic gardening right? Well, now is the perfect time. You probably have a lot of questions on how to start and what to do, but no worries, this article has you covered. Listed below are some tips that will help you get started with your organic gardening plans.

If you so choose to organic garden your trees, flowers, and shrubs, it is very important that you surround them with at least 2 to 3 inches of organic material. This will provide your plants with the organic nutrients that they need. As rain falls, it will release the nutrients to the plants.

Often times, in order to get rid of certain caterpillars or worms, you have to use a special netting that will hide them from your leafy green plants such as broccoli. This net will keep the pests out and away from damaging your crops, while maintaining the organic essence of your garden.

If you are new to organic gardening, start with disease resistant plants. Some plants are just hardier than others and because of this they will require less maintenance. A plant that survives well on its own will encourage you in continuing your organic gardening practices. Ask at your local garden store, as different varieties are hardy in different areas of the country.

When designing your organic garden, use a lot of different plants, creating more diversity. With more diversity in the garden, you are inviting diverse populations of insects which could be very beneficial within the garden and around the home. You want to create a habitat that encourages great growth and an eco-friendly manner of maintaining your garden.

Having a compost pile to use for your garden helps your garden in many ways because it encourages abundant life in the soil such as worms, bugs and helpful bacteria which in turn will add to the nutrients in your soil. The result will be more lush and hardy plant growth.

You should organize your garden and plan everything. Do not buy seeds if you do not know where you will plant them. You need to plan on the long term for certain plants, and on the very short term for short-lived plants that will need to be replaced very quickly.

A rich, organic compost can greatly enhance the quality of your garden and potting soil by introducing beneficial new elements and organisms into the environment. These helpful guests include bacteria, soil-enriching earthworms, and a variety of insects that can consume and devour more harmful organisms that have invaded the soil.

While caring for your organic garden involves many big, day-long tasks, it also calls for smaller jobs that need to be performed more frequently. Keep a good handle on the minor needs of your garden so that you can make good use of brief periods of free time. When you have a few minutes to spare, why not use them weeding, pruning or performing other garden maintenance tasks?

Now you are much more prepared when it comes to organic gardening. You thought that you were ready before, well look at you, now! Hopefully, the tips that were provided gave you some advice that will help you get started with your organic gardening adventures so that you can begin growing like a pro!
