Organic gardening has been made much easier! Chose plants that are native to your area. You can reduce the use of pesticides and fertilizers by selecting plants that correspond to the soil you have and to the climate. Native plants and natural fertilizer work well together. Since the compost is made from native ingredients, plants react strongly to it. Do your homework. Gardening, and organic gardening in particular, depends on a lot of variables including crop, climate, weather, soil, and pests. To be successful requires a lot of trial and error. To be as informed as possible, read as many books, articles, and blogs on organic gardening as you can. Those written about your state can be especially informative. If you plant tomatoes, make sure you plant a second batch roughly three weeks after the first ones were done. Doing this will keep your whole harvest from popping up at the same time. You will also prevent your vegetables from being ruined all at once by an unexpected frost or an infestation. Making compost is a wonderful way to get fertilizer for the garden. An effective technique is to start a worm compost container. Put some red wiggler worms in your bin along with a bit of dirt, your kitchen scraps, and some shreds of newspaper.
