There are many benefits to organic gardening for not only the gardener, but for wildlife and the environment too. This is especially true when growing your own vegetables and fruit. Simply put, organic gardening means growing and cultivating plants without relying on synthetic or chemical products for pest control, weeding, or fertilisation.

Many of us already use very few chemicals in our gardens and by making a few careful choices it is remarkably easy to cut out non-organic items completely and the benefits of doing so are countless.
