Most likely, you have seen organic foods in your local grocery store or read about them in a newspaper. You may not always know which fruits or vegetables are really organic without looking at the packaging or prices. They have different packaging and are more expensive. Read the helpful tips in the article below to learn more about having your own fresh organic garden.

Pay attention to how you lay sod. Your soil should be prepared before you lay the sod. Eradicate any weeds and work the soil until it is very fine. Make sure the soil is packed firmly and even. The soil should be adequately moistened. Staggered rows with offset joints is the best way for the sod to be laid out. Pat down the sod and fill any gaps with soil. Water the sod everyday for the first two weeks until the roots grow enough.

Always take the time to get the weeds out of your garden. Weeds can take a promising garden and turn it into a shell of its potential. To aid in this venture, you might want to use white vinegar. White vinegar is natural, very inexpensive, and can really kill the weeds! If you are too busy to pull weeds by hand, make a white vinegar solution and keep it handy for a quick spray when needed.

Instead of leaving clumps of irises intact, divide them so that your flowers can grow in a more healthy manner. Increase your iris stocks by dividing your overgrown clumps. Uproot bulbous irises if the flowers have wilted. The bulbs should split naturally, and the replanted bulbs will usually flower within a year. Divide up the rhizomes with a knife. Cut rhizomes from around the outside then throw away the remaining center. There needs to be a minimum of one healthy offshoot on each of the new sprout sections. Replant your new rhizome pieces as soon as you have finished the cuttings.

A simple way to lower the alkaline content of your soil is to dilute it with coffee grounds. Using coffee grounds is a less expensive way to make your soil more acidic than trying to replace your topsoil. This simple act can lead to vegetables that taste better and look more appealing.

Young children will love it if you plant strawberries that bear continually, and organic gardens are the perfect place to do it. Children will be more willing to help you if they can pluck their own fruit from the garden.
