When most people think of organic gardening they think of three possibilities: complicated very labor-intensive gardening, gardening that involved unattractive plants and a tolerance of insects, or letting weeds take over your planters. While organic gardening is different from what many are used to, it is not complicated or significantly more labor-intensive than traditional gardening. Organic gardening does not mean foregoing attractive plants and aesthetically pleasing layouts. Organic gardening is more about what you do not do, namely use synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and how the garden is planned from the ground up. Several simple tips and tools will provide an enjoyable organic garden.
