Here at Earthwise we realize that there are many ways to garden and all levels of gardening skill and interest. The natural gardener can benefit from a mixture of age-old, time-tested skills and an array of new and improved natural growing products and tools. Which products and tools it makes sense to use often depends on the size of the garden.
Our focus of interest and expertise for over 30 years has been in the “natural” or “organic/biological” approach to growing plants commercially. Along the way we have advised many local clients on adapting the most successful practices of large scale growers to their own situation.
To more widely share this knowledge, we have decided to provide a series of “How To” and “What To” and “What If ?!?” articles covering many aspects of “natural” gardening.
There are a lot of twists and turns that can occur in the garden between seed selection and the supper table. Foreknowledge and good planning can go a long way toward making that path a bit straighter. You will find articles on soil preparation and amendments, supplemental fertility ideas using foliar spraying and water injection techniques, weed control, and last, (but not least!) rescue products for the inevitable problems that “crop up”. Eating (and giving away) fresh produce from the garden is satisfying on many levels. We hope we can help you along the way to a bountiful harvest while reducing your stress level at the same time.
