Organic Gardening 101


It seems like every day there is a new environmental study that plagues the safety of the American public. This has created an increased demand for the know-how of organic gardening. That’s right, organic gardening is no longer just for hippies but for city slickers and country folks alike.

 

The use of genetically modified crops is now just as big a concern as the pesticides that are absorbed into the fruits and vegetables in our supermarkets. The cost of organic gardening has come down considerably and now is the time to learn how to grow your own crops safely and organically. 

 

Vegetable Selection

 

Your mind can be at ease knowing that Bonnie Plant farm and Home Depot does not grow genetically modified vegetables and we do not carry genetically modified seeds either. Bonnie Plants are Hybrid or Heirloom. To learn the difference between Hybrid and Heirloom vegetables click the link.

 

 

Soil Selection

 

Many people don’t have room for a large garden and simply want to grow a few pepper or tomato plants in pots on their patio. The Home Depot has everything that you need to accomplish that with great success. Organic potting mix will get those veggies off to a great start.
