Synthetic fertilizers, weed killers and insecticide might seem like helpful products. However, in the long run, they can do a lot more harm than good, especially since they can irreparably damage your soil and prevent helpful insects from inhabiting your garden.
The first steps towards growing healthy, organic plants is to eliminate anything synthetic from the mix. Even though it might be a challenge, since organic slow release fertilizer products can be more expensive at times, you’ll find that you can get your investment back over time, because of the balanced approach that organic gardening involves.
Slow-release, organic fertilizer and a basic compost box made using organic products and leftovers can help you a lot when you want to give your plants as many nutrients as possible. These products will release their nutrients slowly, over a greater period of time, providing your plants with the best opportunity to gain access to their life-giving nutrients.
Also, instead of using insecticide, consider gardening in an intelligent way. Plant herbs that attract beneficial snails and insects, and make sure that you create a hospitable environment for them. That way, instead of a clumsy, inefficient compound that might harm your plants and soil, you’ll gain a highly efficient team of little workers that will be glad to devour all the insects you want to get rid of.
