Choose a site for fruit trees depending on their specific requirements. Most fruit trees require 8 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is important, as it dries dew rapidly, helping to prevent fungus. Avoid planting fruit trees in a low spot in the garden where frost or cold air can collect. Some fruit trees are especially susceptible to late frost damage, and are better planted on a north-facing slope. This is especially true for peach, plum, cherry and apricot trees.
Since you are doing a type of “green” gardening by growing an organic garden, be aware of water conservation. If you want to increase the water conservation of your garden, try seeking out drought-resistant plants. These tend to have silver-colored leaves, deeper taproots and smaller leaves. You can also use succulents since they can resist dry weather.
Expect to use a lot of organic fertilizer. When using organic fertilizer, expect to use much more than a chemical fertilizer. This is because an organic fertilizer contains less nutrients by weight compared to its chemical counterpart. That being said, organic fertilizers are slow and steady to release nutrients into the soil, whereas chemical fertilizers give a quick blast and then do nothing. Also, chemical fertilizers tend to be full of nitrogen, which is great for certain plants, but detrimental to others.
If you are wanting to start your own organic garden, you should always have a plan before beginning. This will assist you in determining where your plants should be located, which will give you a head-start when you are outside planting your plants. If you have plants that have a short life-span, planning ahead what you want to plant in their place is very important.
One of the most important things you can do in regards to your organic garden is be aware of the types of plants that you can use. When buying plants for your landscape, try looking for well-adapted plants that can be used in your soil, with your sun or shade exposure and that can survive in your temperature range.
It is possible to grow an organic garden all year if you have a sufficient light source for an indoor garden. Plants need plenty of light in order to grow properly and there are bulbs that can be purchased to provide indoor gardens with the appropriate amount of light to have them thrive and produce a fruitful bounty.
As was previously stated, organic gardening can be a great hobby for anyone to get into. It takes a little knowledge to learn the basics so that you can start growing your garden correctly, but you don’t have to become an expert to do so. Just keep those tips in mind.
