Organic gardeners seek natural solutions to gardening challenges. Here are some tips to keep in mind.
Step 1: Start a compost pile
Start a compost pile. Layer it with equal parts of brown matter — for example, straw and dry leaves — and green matter, such as grass clippings, kitchen scraps, and manure. Keep the pile wet, and turn it occasionally.
Step 2: Build your soil
Build your soil. Add compost and amend it with organic fertilizers like fish emulsions, seaweed extracts, and bone meal.
Continue to add organic matter to your soil on an ongoing basis.
Step 3: Remove pests
Remove pests by hand or by blasting them with water, before they have a chance to multiply. If pests do get out of control, try using soapy water or a blend of pepper and water.
