Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

Invite biodiversity into your garden. Increasing your plant variety will draw further variety in the wildlife around. Try planting many different groups of plants in the garden so you are able to recreate a more natural environment. Different varieties can give you a pleasant garden to relax in, while doing good things for the environment.

You might be aware of the many benefits that compost provides to an organic garden, but do you have any idea what materials are actually in it? Compost is a mixture of organic matter such as grass clippings, dead leaves, scraps of produce, eggshells, straw, and small twigs that all break down together into a soil-like consistency. Make some compost, and start using that rather than costly commercial fertilizers.

This will make organic gardening easier. When deciding what to plant, opt for flowers, grasses and shrubs that are native to your area. Choose plants that are right for your climate and soil, to avoid the need for pesticide or fertilizer. Many native plants work quite well with compost composed of natural and native ingredients. You should use plenty of mulch if you want to save water when growing a home garden. The more mulch you have, the less you will have to water your plants. You can use store-bought mulch, composted lawn trimmings, or chipped wood from fallen or trimmed limbs. Pile on as much as you can. If you’re planning on adding some tomatoes to your garden, try planting a new set of tomatoes exactly three weeks after you plant the first batch. This way, all of the tomatoes will not be ready to harvest at once. Additionally, if one crop is damaged in some way, you will still have more to look forward to. Would you like to make your own compost without spending a lot of money? Save all the pieces of fruit you don’t eat! Such organic components produce terrific compost materials that serve as inexpensive, yet effective nutrition for your plants. Annually rotate your garden. Repeatedly planting the same greenery in the same place can cause fungus and disease. These diseases can build up in the soil, reinfecting your plants the next year. By using the crop rotation method, you will be able to ward off disease and fungus naturally.

If you are planning to grow plants within the house, the temperature should be maintained between 65 and 75 degrees within the daylight hours. The temperature needs to remain steady and warm so the plants can grow. Another option is the use heat lamps that will protect your organic plants. High soil quality means higher quality plants, and high-quality plants are more resistant to disease and insect infestations. Even though insects will be present, you will be able to avoid the damage they cause.
