Essential Supplies To Make Your Organic Garden Flourish!

Oct 10, 2007
If you are interested in growing your own organic garden, supplies to help you out are essential. Investing in these supplies won't make your gardening any less organic, because the special thing about these supplies is that they don't use any chemicals or pesticides. You will need a lot of these supplies to keep your garden thriving.

Whether you believe in using pesticides or not, pests are always going to be a problem when you have a garden to grow. If you are an organic gardener, you will obviously disdain pesticides or synthetic products and refrain from using them to help you with your garden. What is the alternative? What you can do is use natural means of pest control, namely insects and bugs that will eat the harmful pests that would otherwise have hampered the health of your organic garden.

Here is what you can use - natural insect repellents, beneficial insects, trap, pheromone lures and organic insecticides. Some insects that will act as predators for the harmful pests in your garden are the ladybird, the praying mantis and lacewing larvae. Many organic materials make excellent insecticide. They protect the plants without the harmful side-effects or add-ons of chemical products. They have an effect on the insects on contact or when the insects consume them. Insects may also be lured into traps. Critters and birds have the potential to cause considerable damage to vegetables.

Consequently, there are several supplies available on the market to trap them or scare them away. Weeds cause your garden to become unhealthy. There are weed control supplies available in organic gardening supplies stores, such as organic pre-emergent herbicide and slow release fertilizer.

In the rainy season, fungal spores are the causal factor in almost all plant diseases. Fungi may be cured by organic sulphur and copper products. A root named weevil removes knapweed very effectively. Soil boosters and fertilizers of a natural origin are used in the organic method of gardening, and are easily available at organic gardening supplies shops everywhere. Tools used for cultivation, the care of lawns and tree care are required in organic gardening. The essential supplies in this regard are the spade, fork, hoe and trowel. A lawnmower is also essential. A bow saw, pruning saw and secatures are required to take care of trees properly.

There are many stores exclusively selling organic gardening tools and supplies. You can get organic insect repellents; beneficial organisms and insects as well as organic insecticides may also be bought at these stores.
