How To Create A Thriving Organic Garden

Select the garden site: Select the specific area that will be suitable for an organic garden. For example, if you plan to grow vegetables or herbs, then choose an area that will receive sunlight for at least 6 hours of the day.

Compost is organic material produced when bacteria in the soil cause garbage and biodegradable trash to decompose. It is an organic fertilizer. Making compost requires regular turning of the pile, mixing the materials in it, and exposing them to air. It is an ongoing process, and is a good way to recycle kitchen scraps and other vegetable matter.

Make sure the area is a site that will drain well. If the site does not drain well, there are several options available to improve this. Try to avoid planting on an incline. Erosion can ruin your garden. If it comes a big rain right after planting seeds, you run the risk of seeds washing away.

One of the keys philosophies that are needed to plan your fall garden is the days-to-harvest. Days-to-harvest is the estimated number of days that are needed to grow a plant from seed until it is harvestable. It is an estimation because of all of the outside factors that can affect how a plant grows. The estimated days-to-harvest information is found on the back of every seed packet and sometimes on the back of stakes found in seedling packs.

The new suggestions I found were diatomaceous earth [DE], Sluggo and Red Clover. DE is fossilized remains of one-celled algae. This white powder is rough and cuts the underbelly of the slugs. So, now the garden has a lovely snow effect.
