To implement an organic garden


Nothing could be easier than doing an organic garden especially if you are already involved in an ecological approach.

Here are the steps:

  • Select your seeds according to the season, luminosity of the location, the humidity and the drainage in your garden. You can ask to some market gardeners or to some people from the local market. They will give you some tips with pleasure!
  • Get your ground ready: weed, better by hand or with some smooth solutions and non chemical (salted water and sodium bicarbonate for example). A mulch made of dry grass cuttings, dead leaves will be a good protection for your ground.
  • Scatter the compost then plant the seeds and the plants, respecting the instructions given with the seeds.
  • Optimize the watering: Water in the morning (in order to avoid too much evaporation) with some rain water you harvested thanks to the water butt. Depending of the humidity rate, once or twice a week should be enough.
  • Weed and protect the plants from the pests (pay attention that some of them are usefull to protect the ecosystem of your organic vegetable garden): use some organic fertiliser and some natural weapons (garlic in sray, bacillius thuringiensis, horticultural oil, insecticidal soap,…)

And … voila !
