Has anyone here had any experiences with an organic vegetable garden? I know that you are not supposed to use any type of chemicals to kill bugs or anything like that. My question is does it really work? Are there any special tips you can give me to make sure my organic garden is a success?
Any help is appreciated.
Hi James. I try very hard to keep my garden as chemical free as possible and while I'm not 100% organic, I do my best.
The best thing you can do is prepare your soil as thoroughly as possible before you begin, by for example working in organic fertilisers like fish meal. Organic gardeners tend to concentrate on the richness and composition of the soil more than anything but obviously pest control is important too. You'll find homemade recipes for sprays online that aren't laden with chemicals and very effective. Good luck!
Different people have different definitions and intepretations of what constitutes organic gardening.
Tthis is a widely accepted definition:
"Organic gardening differs from "conventional" gardening mainly in the areas of fertilization and pest control. The organic gardener prefers to use natural and organic materials and methods, and avoids using practices and synthetic chemicals that may be detrimental to his health or environment."
