However, if you keep reading, you'll find suggestions that can help simplify organic gardening and even make it fun.

Digging in clay soil with a shovel can be very difficult. The clay isn't easy to work with and will adhere to the shovel, which only makes the problem worse. Take the hard work out of using a shovel in clay soil by rubbing a light coat of car or floor wax over the surface with a clean cloth and buff the surface. By waxing the shovel head, the clay will not be able to adhere to the surface.

If powdery mildew appears on your plants, don't purchase expensive chemical solutions. Plain water with a bit of liquid soap and baking soda will do the trick. Use a spray bottle to apply to your plants weekly until the issue clears up. No damage will occur to your plants, and the baking soda is mild and efficient.

Take extra care of any fragile shrubs that are known to drop their leaves in the autumn. Fragile shrubs, that are planted in pots, should be covered to protect them during the cold season. The tops should be tied together, and the wigwam should be loosely covered with a sheet or blanket. People sometimes use plastic to wrap their plants, but plastic can cause the plants to rot because it impedes air circulation.

Your vegetable garden should get at least six hours of sun daily. Most vegetables need at least that much sun exposure to grow properly. This arrangement will also benefit some types of flowers.

One very good way to deal with weeds is to boil them away. Water is cheaper than chemical herbicides, and less hazardous to humans and soil. Carefully pour boiling water right on the weeds, but be careful not to pour it on the plants you want. The roots of the weeds are damaged by the boiling water which, in turn, inhibits further growth.

If your gardening plans include pea plantings, try starting them off indoors rather than planting the raw seeds in outdoor beds. If you plant them inside, they might germinate more effectively. You will also have hardy seedlings that will be able to resist disease and pests much better. You can transplant the seedlings outside after they are sturdy enough.

A good but unusual organic solution for weeding your plants is try "boiling" your weeds way. Boiling water is an excellent, organic substance for use against weeds. Just pour boiling water directly on top of the weeds cautiously to avoid damaging your plants. If you pour the water near your plants, it will kill the roots.

To create a beautiful English garden use various plants and differing plant heights in one flower bed. If you use a combination of plants that grow to the same height, your garden bed will be uniform and dull looking.
