If you are looking at creating an endurable organic garden, you should think about keeping some of your property vacant so that wildlife may flourish there. You will find that many of the supporting cast of insects and birds that aid in plant production and pollination will be present on your land and actually help your developed gardens to produce better.
It can be extremely fast and easy to plant perennials into your garden. Use your spade to slice chunks of turf up, then flip each piece over, and spread wood chips on top to a depth of four inches. Wait for a few weeks and plant new perennials in this area.

Procrastination leads to problems in a variety of areas, including organic gardening. No matter what your schedule is like, you should be able to fit in small things that will help you avoid having an overwhelming amount of work all at once. Grab a handful of weeds, throw down some mulch, or toss some water on it anytime you walk by.
Your compost pile should contain green plant materials and dry plant materials. Green plant material consists of spent flowers, veggie and fruit waste, leaves, weeds, and grass clippings. For the dry end of the spectrum, think of things like paper and cardboard, sawdust, hay, etc. Charcoal, meat, ashes or other diseased plants should not be included in a compost pile.
Is there a natural way to kill weeds? A good thick layer of newspaper can be laid down to control weeds. Weeds require sunlight to continue growing. The layers of newspaper will kill the weeds because they no longer receive any sunlight. Newspapers easily break down over a period of time, and eventually become a portion of the compost. Add visual appeal by placing some mulch over the top.
Your watering schedule should flow perfectly with the seasons, yet be adjustable according to climate. The amount of water you need to give your plants depends on soil type, quality of water and time of day.
