New organic gardening forum

29 Nov '05 11:21 am
Hello all, and welcome to the new organic gardening forum. I hope this will prove a useful space for everyone to share their knowledge and experience of organic gardening.

I've moved all the older posts which are relevant to this section.

Happy, nature-friendly gardening!
The most luxurious compost bins I've ever seen, in London's Edwardes Square. The 5 bins were taller than me, tucked away behind a hedge, and had an archway covering the path.

Going organic

12 Dec '05 3:23 am

Thanks Bex for setting up the forum. Going organic is a very healthy option, almost everything I buy nowadays is organic. I have even started to use organic deodorant, which is much less harmful than non organic ones...

I've started a little veg garden by planting two small organic potatoes in two pots. I haven't got a garden space as such, just two different balconies, so I garden in pots. I planted a potatoe twice this year and twice I got a few potatoes, grown completely naturally, without pesticides. Now I'm planting organic ones, waiting to taste them already... Smile

Potatoes grow so quickly that it is a very nice veg to start an organic garden. They only need quite a lot of water, and rarely will they have white flies, but any other than don't require much special care.

I just planted them yesterday, so I'm not expecting potatoes until in a couple of months time. The weather? Doesn't matter much, never mattered to my potatoes there.
