Organic gardening is the only method with which we can assure that our plants are healthy while knowing that no pesticides are used during its growth. It may not be easy to look after as it is in case of regular gardening. But once we start to see the difference and feel the hygienic and healthy benefit, it is for sure that we will not go back to regular gardening method.
Another way that organic matter is used in the garden is to cover the soil. Mulches can be applied in winter or summer. Winter mulches protect the roots of young perennials and bulbs, while summer mulches retain soil moisture and limit weed seed germination.
