Organic Gardening

organic gardeningOrganic Gardening Organic gardening involves the utilization of materials derived from living things like compost and manure. The fertilizers contain only naturally occurring animal or plant materials with hardly any man-made chemicals or pesticides ever being used.

The fundamentals of organic gardening begin with the soil used for the process. The importance of organic gardening is laid on “feeding the soil and not the plant”. The soil contains organic matter, which serves as fertilizer providing nutrients to the plants. Organic matter consists of grass clippings, food scraps, leaves from autumn trees and ordinary trash; all of which can be converted into the perfect organic fertilizer and worked into the soil. The compost is also enriched with beneficial microorganisms and bugs both of which feed and protect the plants from disease causing microbes. All the organic gardener has to do is feed the beneficial microbes and let them do their work

Most people would find it hard to believe that cultivating a garden can be done without the benefit of modern science in the form of fertilizers and pesticides. However, this is not really true. Once you learn the ease and simplicity of organic gardening, no matter what you grow, you are bound to have a hearty and healthy patch of green.

Once the soil is treated with organic compost and is ready to be cultivated, the next step would be to select the plants you want to grow. The most important thing that you must remember when buying plants or seeds for your organic garden, is to select plants that are native to your area, or that can grow in your unique climactic conditions. Obviously, plants that are well suited to your climactic conditions will grow better and with less hassles than a plant that is alien to your environment. This provision will guarantee you a relatively maintenance-free gardening experience.

Although organic gardening mainly involves organic compost and manure as fertilizers, some people do use a small amount of synthetic fertilizer or pesticides. The focus however remains on using as less of it as possible. The primary aim of an organic garden is to fit it into the local environment, beginning with proper soil care and water, which provide for healthy plant growth. Organic gardening also includes insects that you can put in your garden to help with pollination and plant defense, which serves as a natural pesticide.

Organic gardening may seem to be more challenging, but in fact, all gardening is hard work with hours of dedicated caring. Organic gardening is a different type of gardening, definitely healthier and more eco friendly.
