We found a fantastic gardening video tutorial by GrowVeg. There are a lot of things to learn about gardening and this one has some great tips.

For me, it’s always best to go organic. It ensures that you are getting a lot of nutrients without the risk of ingesting the remaining pesticides that may have been absorbed into the plants. What I love about organic farming is simply the quality – who doesn’t want top quality vegetables packed with nutrients and delicious taste?

It was mentioned in the video that you should always make sure that there should be enough space in between the plants so that they have enough room to grow. Plants also have their own ways of survival: It’s every plant for itself, so that’s why you will notice that overcrowded plants don’t grow to full size.

Instead of using pesticides, you use other plants to attract beneficial insects that will kill off pesky pests in your garden.
