Organic gardening

Organic gardening does not use man-made pesticides or fertilizers or other dangerous chemicals. Organic gardening is natural and rewarding, and is simpler than you think! This section provides useful links and advice on organic gardening - from creating an organic garden to maintaining it.

Pesticides and decline of the bees

Did you know? Organic vegetables are commonly thought of as having more nutritional benefits than nonorganic vegetables. In particular, many green gardeners claim that organic vegetables are better for people because they are not exposed to harmful pesticides and fertilisers.

From their handmade Adirondack chairs, Hay Rakes and Trugs to their Seaweed, Neem and Wildflower seed pack everything Natural Gardener offer is natural, sustainable, biodegradable or recyclable. Almost everything they use comes from the soil and will return to it, that's why 'Nature's Natural Cycle' is their trade mark and objective (nature wastes nothing, and they think it's a pity we did not learn from that wise old lady earlier!) Natural Gardener are also actively engaged in the principle that people need sustaining too, so they are integrally involved with ladies in Sri Lanka, who make their coir pots, the Widemarsh Workshop, who make their garden furniture, the Uplift programmes who produce the recycled planters and many other things. Hey, that sounds pompous! Natural Gardener don't wear sandals all the time and just eat tofu - they're simply trying to stop today being paid for by tomorrow. www.thenaturalgardener.co.uk





Bee Happy Plants










 

Bee Happy Plants sell ‘Wild Species’ plants which are ideal for all bees and pollinators, and propagate our wild species plants (to Soil Association Organic standard) from seed, also selling seed of these species. Wild flowering plants have evolved over millions of years with their pollinators. They also have the ability through healthy gene-pools, by growing from seed, of evolving to adapt to changing environmental conditions, it being the mechanism by which all species on earth have so far survived. Loss of wild species plants ultimately means loss of their pollinators. www.beehappyplants.co.uk

Reviews and feedback   

Bucket of Worms. "I just wanted to let you know that I received the worms exactly when you promised, and the Cubs had a very fun evening building their womeries. They've all been taken home for 'observation', and several parents have asked me for your website link as they are now interested in starting their own composting bins.
Thanks again for your help," - Lesley
