Effective steps for Organic Gardening:

Organic Gardening involves usage of Bio-degradable additives for the fertile growth of plants or crops. Gardening usually adopted at the backyard of the property with varying sizes depending upon the gardeners wish. As a Gardener I can help out you people to be proactive in gardening if you read and follow the instructions carefully which I have mentioned below.

Firstly preparation of Soil media for the plants is vital one, for that we need to know about the essential nutrients for the growth of a plant. Nutrients are subdivided into Macro as well as Micro. Macro-nutrients include Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Sulphur (S). Plants need these Macro-nutrients in large amount for their growth, so make sure that Macro-nutrients are provided abundant in the soil media. These nutrients can be supplied by using Poultry manure, Grass Clippings or mixing Egg shell powder along with the soil. Lime Juice can also be used in the soil for the supply of calcium and magnesium. Lime has the ability to promote the pH (6 - 6.05) of the soil layer making the nutrients available for the plants in excess amounts. It also makes the soil to perform the free air and water movement activity between the earth particles. Micro-nutrients are also essential for a fertile soil which includes Boron (B), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Chloride (Cl), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo) and Zinc (Zn). These are available in the Grass clippings itself. Try to use Red earth for Flowering Plants and Dark earth with dry manure for other plants.

Note:

  • Avoiding using Fresh Manure for Food Crops or plants.
  • Poultry Manure in excess when applied directly can burn plants. So avoid direct application of such manure.

Pest has been a menace for the farmers as well as gardeners. To reduce the pests in gardens, use ingredients which have effective odor against them. Garlic, pepper and chilli powder with the soil. Use of Neem Oil which is an efficient Bio-pesticide can also be used to prevent pests and insects in the garden.

Instructions:

  • Take few teaspoons of Garlic and pepper powder.
  • Mix it with the few ml of vegetable oil or Neem oil.
  • Use some proportions of soap detergents to make it thinner.
  • Add a litre of water to it.
  • Spray over the plant to eliminate pests.
