If you’d like to create an organic garden of your own, it’s important you learn how to build beds. To begin, slice with a space under the turf. Next, flip the turf, and spread a few inches worth of wood chips across the area. You can cut and plant after a couple weeks. If sustainability and organic gardening are appealing to you, leave a portion of the property you own undeveloped to give wildlife a place to thrive. Most likely, you will find your organic garden producing better once your property is home to the insects, birds, and other wildlife that plants rely on for pollination and the production and dispersal of seeds. If you want a sustainable garden, leave a part of it undisturbed for wildlife to enjoy. 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.
Dig a large hole in the organic garden when you want to plant a shrub or tree. When holes you have dug end up with slick sides due to the shovel you used, it is possible that the roots may not be able to sink into the soil properly. The correct depth for planting seeds in containers is triple the seed’s size. There are some seeds, however, that you should not cover at all, since they need sunlight to germinate. Ageratum and petunias are two examples of seeds that should not be planted deeply. Always be sure to check online or with the company you’re purchasing the seeds from as to their sunlight needs.
Plant your trees in such a position that their branches stop the sun’s rays from reaching your house. Trees that throw shade on your home during the hot summer months can be an important ally in reducing energy costs.
