Organic Gardening

Yes, like the heading says, this forum is about organic gardening. I should probably post here more often. The only pesticide I used was isopropyl alcohol for an outbreak of mealy bugs. Then someone in a nursery mentioned that particular variety of pittosporum is very prone to it so out it came. That's the catch, I do try to avoid planting anything that is prone to problems in the first place so sometimes it's a bit limiting.

*bump - burying a weed :mrgreen:

That's a very good idea MacFlax, unfortunately I love so many things that don't grow well in my garden and being a greedy gardener I go ahead and plant them. Nature usually knows better tho and settles the score. The plant karks it! :lol:

I am a big fan of organic gardening and I try to avoid using pesticides as much as possible in my work. Of course, there are always a few situations where dealing with the problem in an organic matter is impossible. For instance, not long ago we had a very severe fire blight on apple trees, and curing all that without using chemicals was practically impossible. But where it's possible, I try to replace the chemical remedies with some tricks I've learned with time. Like for instance dealing with weeds and some pests in organic ways. For instance, I use beer to get rid of slugs. Strange, but it works.
