If you have pests in your garden, there is no reason to use chemicals. Instead, try hanging shiny silver objects throughout the organic garden. These objects can help frighten off larger animals, such as deer, rabbits, and birds, it can also disorient pests that fly such as aphids since they rely on the sun to direct their flight.

One important part of an organic garden is a compost pile. Airflow is important for any compost pile. A simple way to keep the air flowing through your pile is to insert a PVC pipe into the center of your pile that has holes punched in it. This will allow the air to flow up and down through the pipe and throughout your compost pile. When you have air flowing through your compost pile, the decay process will go quicker.

Some people opt to let mother nature create a compost pile naturally. If you want to give mother nature hand, you can add compost starter to your natural composting area. These starters include microorganisms that help the compost decay faster. You can find these starters and most garden centers.

Using a soaker hose on your organic garden is a great way to save time. You will no longer have to stand over your garden with a hose or continue to refill your watering jug when you use a soaker hose. Simply set your hose next to the plants that need watering and turn your water pressure on low. Remember to turn off the water later, though.

As you can see, it’s not that difficult to keep your organic garden up and going throughout the year. Use the tips above to make your organic garden successful.
