As a gardener, you love the feel of earth between your fingers.
The look and smell of fresh flowers serves as a reward for the hours you spend on your hands and knees.
Or you may supplement your diet with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from your garden.
Either way, it seems counterproductive to douse your plants with chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers just to get them to grow. Fortunately, there are a number of alternate strategies that you can utilize to maintain the health of your plants, keep pests away and grow your garden the green way.
