Organic Gardening: An Overview
Organic gardening involves working with natural systems in an ecosystem to grow healthy plants without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Practices such as companion planting, cover cropping, crop rotation are all great examples of organic gardening. We are here to help you understand these practices and provide the supplies needed to achieve abundant crops from year to year.
Every garden is different; we help gardeners on all scales with the amendments or supplies that they need that’s appropriate for the job. Whether if its building raised beds for square foot gardening, or supplying nitrogen, phosphorus, or potassium for row gardening, we have you covered. We also post regularly on the Fifth Season blog with tips, product reviews and other essential information to help you grow your own…organically!
