Organic gardening is the way to go these days, not just because it’s cheaper versus conventional gardening, but because you get more benefits out of it in the long run.
Using all natural gardening methods means not using chemical-laden pesticides, weed control, and fertilizers to help your plants grow. As an organic gardener, your goal is to not cause harm to the plants, the soil, and the waterways. One way you can keep practicing this core principle is to make your own organic fertilizer. You not only save costs on gardening by making your own organic fertilizer instead of buying from a store, but you also do your plants a favor by helping them grow healthier.
Here are some ideas of what you can use to make your own organic fertilizer. Most of them are already available in your own home, things you just put in the trash or compost without a second thought, like banana peels or grass cuttings. Now, you’ll think twice again before throwing your banana peels into the trash bin.
