There will always be garden pests but instead of using chemicals to deal with this problem, there are many more natural ways to get rid of them, similar to the way gardeners did many years ago before the use of pesticides and herbicides.

With a little work you will soon produce fruits, vegetables and herbs that are healthy, taste wonderful, are less expensive than buying produce at the grocery store and give you the peace of mind knowing exactly how they were grown and what was used on them.

Organic gardening tips you should try are; instead of buying compost for your garden, which could contain chemicals, make your own while you cut down on garbage at the same time.

Using your garden and kitchen waste is an excellent and very easy way to make your own compost.

In your compost pile use peelings from carrots, potatoes and other vegetables, dead weeds, coffee grounds, egg shells and even the pruning from roses and other plants. The different textures help break down the compost quickly.

Compost improves the soil texture, structure and aeration while enriching the soil, which stimulates root development. When choosing plants for your organic garden, make sure you choose ones that are well adapted for your area.

Here are a couple of great organic gardening tips that not only help keep your garden free of weeds but also keep the soil from drying out too quickly.

Grass clippings and pine needles mixed or old newspapers make very good mulch, which keeps your garden weed free and the soil moist and will help you grow healthy organic fruits and vegetables that you, your family and friends can enjoy.
