Start organic container gardening simply by modifying your perspective on
how plants grow. For years, many gardeners who have accepted the fact that
?it all works together? and that the real bottom of the food chain is the
soil and water have practiced organic gardening. Starting with the soil,
organic gardening works with the system nature has already put in place.
Therefore, since you don?t need to ?reinvent the wheel? organic gardening is
easier in many ways than commercial cultivation.
When you begin organic gardening in pots you start your
plants or seeds with the very best conditions. Starting with a high-quality
organic potting mixture ensures that your plants have all the nutrients they
need to become established. Instead of constantly trying to improve the
conditions, your primary job in organic container gardening will be only to
replenish the nutrients and moisture your plants have taken from the soil.
One important point to remember in organic container gardening is that you
will feed the soil, not the plants. Generally, when you fertilize plants,
it?s a quick fix? like a ?sugar high? that quickly fades, leaving plants
high and dry and soon needing reapplication. When you practice organic
container gardening, you replenish lost nutrients with composted materials.
You might say that in organic gardening you help make dirt!
Decaying plant wastes such as grass clippings, leaves, produce clippings and
scraps are the basics for good compost. Compost becomes humus, which is the
organic component of soil. By composting vegetable matter that you normally
throw in the trash or down your disposer, you put back nutrients and add
enriched soil. You feed the soil, which fed the plant, which fed you. This
completes the circle, and of course starts it again when you harvest the
beautiful plants from your organic container garden.
