Organic Gardening Tips
Organic gardening is a great way to have a garden without harming the environment and if you are growing vegetables, it is a great way to get fresh, healthy food on your dinner table.
Organic gardening may look a bit complicated at first glance, but once you familiarize yourself with it, you will find that it really is not that difficult. Below, we are going to tell you more about this subject:
Today, organic gardening has become quite popular and there is good reason behind this. This type of gardening does not use synthetic chemicals so there is no toxic substances going into the ground or your food. Organic gardening is really not much more difficult than regular gardening but you must take care when it comes to fertilizing the plants and adopt natural methods of pest control.
Composting can be an important part of organic gardening as it can provide you with nutrients for your soil. When starting a compost pile, it is important for you to make sure you get air into the compost pile. You can do this by putting the PVC pipe down in the middle of the garden.
It is important that you remember the soil is the life force of your garden. When it is rich with organic matter, the soil will be moist, airy and fertile. This is perfect for healthy plants. It will also bring about a rich population of organisms that are beneficial. These beneficial organisms include earthworms.
Are you looking for the ‘lazy’ way to make compost? All you have to do is layer lawn clippings, leaves and kitchen waste. Leave it there until it is ready to be placed in your garden. Nature will take this organic matter and turn it into dark compost.
In order to aerate the compost piles, you can use perforated PVC pipes. Ideally, the compost pile should be around four feet high. This would make it big enough to get the warmth from the heat of the decay. Is this important/ Yes. In high temperatures, it will help semi-sterilize the compost that is developing.
This will kill hibernating bugs, kill disease sports and weed the seeds. In order for it to work to create heat, it is important that it gets plenty of air and not just as the top of the pile. Traditionally, you can aerate it by plopping of fluffing the compost with a pitchfork and that can be tough work.
Organic gardening can be extremely fun and it is as safe as safe could possibly get.
