Organic Gardening - The 5 Basics

by jennifer.

Organic Gardening is a topic which is very controversial in the recent few years. The reason is, there are conspiracy theories that governments feed us with plastic vegetables which are produced only to taste good and affect the human organism in a bad way. 

With this guide from Gardeners Canterbury you will get what the basics of organic gardening are. This guide is perfect for people who want to grow their perfectly organic, non-flavoured, non-coloured vegetables in their very own garden. It is meant for people who have no experience or even for children.

The basics listed on this infographic are the following:


You need to plan out  where you're going to be planting each of your fruits and vegetables. You need to make sure it's in a place that is in the sun at least 6.5 hours a day, and away from any trees or shrubbery that could potentially suck the nutrients from your plants. 


After you plan out the locations of where your plants are going, you need to make sure that your soil is full of the important nutrients that will not only help make your fruits and veggies grow better, but also make them taste a whole lot better. 


Make sure that when you choose the seeds for your garden you are choosing ones that are "Certified Organic."


Composting is not a necessary part of your garden, but it can increase the health of your soil, and also help to reduce your footprint. 


Watering your garden can be an art. You need to make sure your plants get enough water to keep them from shriveling up, but you also need to make sure that you don't give them too much water and drown them.
