Plant this in your garden and forget about it. Apart from the nice North facing wall it sits happily in front of, there was nothing else helping it. Plant and animal matter is normally used and sometimes supplemented with fine dolomite lime (providing calcium and magnesium while raising the pH and ” sweetening” the soil) and other mined ingredients. Hopefully the end result of all this work will give the gardener all of the mineral elements his or her next crop will require.

Soil is prepared properly for the garden, Apply the water deeply for the plants. In summer we should spend the extra concentration for protect the plants. Soil solarization is an organic method of keeping weeds from taking over. Organic garden compost or mulch varies in cost and availability. Soil that has been mulched is also less likely to form a hard crust. Many gardeners have also discovered that they have fewer problems with plant disease when they mulch.
Soil in raised beds warms up and dries out faster in spring and is easer to work. You can reform the beds each spring or make the beds permanent by framing them with rot-resistant wood, plastic or stone.
Mulching helps the soil retain moisture, suppresses weeds, reduces temperature fluctuations, and can prevent soil crusting. Many organic gardeners find that plant disease problems decline as the health of the soil improves. Mulches are invaluable in both water conservation and slowing down weed germination.
Organic gardening Compost is where you recycle food scraps and other waste products into the soil so that it helps to feed the plants. Things you would normally throw away such as eggshells, leftovers like meat, potatoes, tomatoes, cheeses, anything that you would normally eat can be composted into the soil to help it become rich in nutrients and help to feed the new plants. Compost and composted manure, mixed with peat moss, make great soil for organic container gardening. You can also use straight peat moss.
