More on growing vegetables organically
Other important elements of gardening include location, drainage, and companion planting.
Different plants need varying amounts of shade and light, which can produce a difficult decision for a new gardener. A general rule of thumb is that a garden with southern exposure and a bare minimum of six hours of sunlight will be productive. A more ideal location, an open field for example, increases the amount of light exposure.
Water is a key ingredient for healthy organic plants, however over watering can cause damage. Ensure that your plants receive the right amount of water by providing proper drainage. For poor draining areas we recommend applying Nitron's A-35 and a good organic compost.
Companion planting is nature’s way of combating problems. For example, planting garlic near tomatoes will repel some pests. See more on companion planting at our Garden Center page. Companion planting allows you to keep your organic garden all-natural, but still see produce with less weeds and fewer insects.
