Just about anyone can become an organic gardener. It’s a fun, relaxing hobby that has a lot of benefits. The gardening experience can sometimes be rather intimidating and overwhelming to a beginner. Are you interested in cultivating green gardens and earning that green thumb? Well, you are in luck; these tips will come in handy!
One of the problems that people come up against when trying to grow organic plants indoors is a lack of natural light. Almost every type of plant you grow requires ample sunlight, so think about how much natural light you home receives or if you perhaps need to supplement with UV lamps. If the type of plant does not help, you can always use lights to help.
Have all of your tools available to you as you garden to increase efficiency. Wear pants with multiple pockets or use a toolbox or large bucket. You will be much more productive if you can quickly get to your spade, pruning shears, trowel and watering can.
Take your seedlings and saplings to a cooler spot once they are established. Locate your plants further from your heat source as they mature. Also, remove plastic coverings from the tops of your growing containers to keep them from becoming too warm or humid. Check on your seeds often so you catch them when they are ready.
Put coffee grounds in your soil. Coffee grounds add many nitrogenous nutrients to the soil that will benefit your plants. Plants need an adequate nitrogen source in order to thrive. Adding coffee grounds, chemical fertilizer, or diluted urea to your soil increases the soil’s nitrogen content and will help to make your plants grow faster, taller and healthier.
