It means not using any artificial chemicals such as pesticide sprays, slug pellets etc. on your garden, but only natural products and fertilizers.Use compost that you make yourself, in a bin, from waste vegetable matter left over from cooking etc.This is good for the planet as less goes to landfill sites and makes the soil lovely and rich. Basically, you’re not going to be eating a load of toxic chemicals, some of which we don’t know the long-term effects of yet and neither will the wildlife/pets that come into your garden.

  1. not using chemicals everything you put on the plants should be natural use lots of compose and natural fertilizers

  2. Organic gardening involves working in cooperation with nature, viewing your garden as a small part of the natural system.

    It means not using synthetic products, including pesticides and fertilizers.

    Organic gardening replenishes the resources as it makes use of them. Like feeding depleted soil with composted plants, or planting legumes to add nitrogen to an area that had been planted with a heavy feeder.

  3. Organic gardening is essentially growing great soil and creating a balance in you environment. Healthy soil leads to healthy and nutrient dense plants that are far less likely to be affected by insect pests and diseases. balance means that you have both good and bad bugs, fungi, bacteria, etc.. The idea being things in balance like insects means they will not get out of control and overwhelm your plants

    Organic gardeners stay away from synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. That said they can use non synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. natural fertilisers include compost, animal manure, green manure, fish emulsion, kelp, rock powders and raw mined minerals. Pesticides (pest control) include soap sprays, garlic sprays, hot peppers sprays, companion planting, beneficial insects, milk, dormant oil, neem, etc..

    Weeds are controlled by a combination of tilling, hoeing, mowing, and mulching.

    Organic gardening is looking at your gardening environment holistically rather than linearly
