One good way to have a steady supply of healthy, fresh vegetable is to develop an organic garden. It does take some time and effort, though. There are numerous seed choices as well. This article contains tips that will ensure you have everything you need to start an organic garden.
Think about starting plants in pots, and then placing the seedlings in the garden later. Your plants will be more likely to mature this way. It also helps you make your planting times more frequent. Your next crop of seedlings will be started and ready to be planted immediately after you remove your last crop from the garden.
Transfer your favorite plants inside so they survive the winter. Perhaps save the most resistant or expensive plants. Dig around the roots carefully and transfer the plant to a pot.
As the weather turns colder, it is important to prepare your sensitive shrubs for the change. Tender, potted shrubs must be protected when the weather is cold. Tie the tops together, and loosely cover the wigwam with a blanket or sheet. When you do this you allow air to flow and circulate which can actually prevent rotting, this method is great and better than just wrapping your plant in some plastic.
Irises should be divided. You can divide those overgrown clumps and increase the amount of irises you have. You can do this by simply picking up bulbous irises once the foliage has withered. As soon as you pick up the bulb, it'll split into pieces. That's okay - in fact, it's desirable. You can replant the bulb pieces and next year you'll have a healthy bed of new irises. You should divide rhizomes using a knife. Cut several new pieces out of the outside and get rid of the old center. Each piece needs one strong offshoot. Immediately replant all your selected cuttings.
