Ideas to go Organic in Your Garden

Some ideas to go organic in your garden:
• Play to your garden’s strength, making the most of its particular characteristics and using plants that will thrive in those conditions,
• Make compost and leaf mould to feed the soil,
• Learn to distinguish pests from predators.
Plants that are struggling to grow will benefit by applying a strong infusion of chamomile, nature’s first aid remedy for other plants. It is more beneficial to optimize the beneficial fungi and bacteria in the soil that will minimize the detrimental effect of micro-organisms on the roots such as damping-off and wilting disease. Eradicating pathogens with chemicals will only give a short term solution and in the long run you will encounter more problems.
