A garden is an enchanted place where plants, trees and shrubs thrive. It is also a place of education where you can learn about growing your own food, attracting beneficial insects and creating a healthy ecosystem.
Organic farming is an effective way to grow nutritious food while reducing the impact on the environment. It combines scientific advances with time-tested techniques to grow healthy crops and protect them from pests, diseases and environmental factors that can damage or even kill crops.
As cities expand and gardens shrink, container gardening has become more popular than ever. The ideal solution for those in urban areas or those with no backyard space at all, it’s incredibly rewarding and comes with a host of benefits, from space saving to controlled plant care.
Unfortunately, container gardening also comes with a few quirks that need to be considered if you want to be successful. Ask almost any container gardener (including myself) and they will likely admit a few plants have suffered an untimely demise from common errors.
