THE PRINCIPLES OF ORGANIC GARDENING Garden Organic BKGD
Essential reading for all organic gardeners.
While there is no need for legal standards in organic gardening, it is helpful to know what we mean by organic. Garden Organic’s Guidelines do just this. Ten sections cover aspects of garden care with a colour coded system of ratings from ‘Best organic practice’ to ‘Never acceptable in an organic garden’.
Whatever the style, size or location of your garden, the Garden Organic Guidelines will help you look after it organically. They are based on Garden Organic's 50 years experience in organic growing. You may have a small back garden, an allotment, a conservatory or greenhouse, several acres or just a few containers - Garden Organic's methods are designed for every situation. You may be converting an established garden to organic, creating a new garden, or running an existing garden organically - there is advice here for all.
Garden Organic's Guidelines should be used across the whole garden. They will help you to harness the natural cycles and processes that promote plant growth. They will help you to create a 'biodiverse' environment; above ground, beneficial creatures will keep pests and diseases in balance; below ground the soil's microbes will create a healthy soil which will support your plants. They will help you create a sustainable garden, that minimises ecological damage and environmental pollution, whilst providing you with a fresh healthy diet. Recycling and reusing resources cuts costs, and helps the whole household to a greener lifestyle with a smaller ecological footprint.
All these benefits apart, organic gardening methods will help you to enjoy gardening to the full, creating a vibrant garden, bursting with life.
