Gardening is an art, and gardeners are meticulous artists. Ask any gardener around, and more often than not they will have strong opinions on exactly how you should take care of your garden.
Many gardeners are against chemicals and advocate for pesticide-free growing. There are many reasons why you should want to have such a garden: to keep plants edible, to keep your flower beds naturally healthy, or to protect your over-curious pet. Unfortunately, as great as it might be to have a chemical-free garden, it can be a bit difficult to maintain. Don’t worry! Here are some great tips to keep the chemicals out of your garden.
First, you should grow your plants in good, healthy soil. This means you should change it regularly with compost and supplement it if needed. Second, be realistic in your gardening choices. For example, if you live in a tropical country, you shouldn’t plant tulips. They will never see the light of day. So, to have a great garden, match your plants with the climate.
Third, you should always remember diversity is the key to a successful garden. If you grow different plants, the soil will remain balanced and it’ll be less likely you’ll get pests all over your garden. What are you waiting for? Get ready to start growing a sustainable and chemical-free garden!
