Organic gardening is commonly used to describe cultivation systems which make minimal use of manufactured chemical substances. Rather than treating each garden problem individually, an organic gardener takes a holistic approach that places emphasis on the interdependence of life forms.

A fundamental feature of organic gardening is the reliance on manures and fertilisers that are derived from animal or plant remains and are used to feed the soil rather than feeding specific plants.

Caring for a garden without manufactured chemical substances often requires extra time for planning, preparation, and maintenance. There is a need for special effort to gain a proper understanding of the wildlife in gardens (both friend, foe and neutral) as well as their requirements, habits, and lifecycles.

Gardening organically requires more thought than gardening inorganically, and due to a less saturated market of readily available alternatives it can also cost more (at least initially). However, where plants’ requirements for steady growth are met (including choice of site, timing of planting or sowing, soil preparation, nutrition, and watering), the occurrence of damaging attacks by pests, diseases and other disorders happen less often and the effects are less severe. A balanced and biodiverse ecosystem is the equivalent of a strong immune system within humans.

And so, despite the need for a more dedicated and informed approach, the final outcome of organic garden management is a green space that is harmonious, flourishing and largely self-sufficient, and one that requires less and less human intervention (effort and money) as time goes on.
