Create Your Special Garden With These Tips

Posted on May 7, 2015 at 2:27 PM Comments comments (0)

Organic gardening isn't as easy as it seems. Choosing to garden organically means learning about many details, such as your soil's acidity or what sort of insects live in your garden. An organic garden can be more than a little challenging for the novice. Make sure you play for the pros by employing the tips from the text below.

Use annuals and biennials to brighten your flower garden. Annuals and biennials that grow quickly can really wake up your flower beds, and they allow you to have a new garden look every season or every year, if you choose to. They can be used to fill in gaps in your garden between the perennials or shrubs so your garden looks fuller. There are many different varieties to choose from such as daisies, marigolds, impatiens, and lantana.

Cover the fences and walls with climbers. Climbing foliage is a great way to disguise unsightly features on your property, sometimes in the span of just one season. They may grow up through some existing shrubs and trees, and can even be worked to grow around an arbor. Some must be tied to supports, but some climbers use twining stems or tendrils and attach themselves to those surfaces. Excellent varieties include honeysuckle, wisteria, jasmine, climbing roses and clematis.

The first thing you should do when planning a garden is test the soil. You can do a soil sample analysis for an affordable fee and then know what you need to properly treat your soil with so you can grow the best plants. It is worth having this information so that crops do not get ruined. Most Cooperative Extension offices provide this service.

Now, you shouldn't get your hopes up and believe that a few tips are going to turn you into an instant professional gardener. However, these tips are a great starting point if you do plan to grow organically. As you implement these tips and hone your skills, you'll be a professional green-thumb-holder in no time.
