1. Add organic matter to your soil

The most important factor in organic gardening is soil fertility. Feeding the soil adequately to feed your plants will increase their resistance, improving their ability to stand on their own without the need for chemicals.

2. Feed with organics

Use organic compost or a rich organic fertiliser suited to your plant type. Those will boost the growth of your plants, fruits and vegetables whilst at the same time providing natural vital nutrients to the soil.

3. Mulch

Good natural mulches such as Pinebark or Hard Wood helps save water naturally by keeping soils cool. Mulch is also important in controlling weeds and encouraging earthworm activity close to the soil surface, an important feature of the organic garden.

4. Never use chemicals

Organic gardens are not free of pests, in fact they have plenty. But because no chemicals have been used, they are full of the good predatory insects, which prey on the destructive plant-eating insects. This keeps a natural balance. Use natural pest control products such as Beat-A-Bug and control weeds with Richgro Beat-A-Weed.
