Spring is almost upon us and the question of using toxic chemicals in your garden comes into play. If you have children and pets you may want to try an alternative to harmful products, but where do you start?
Our recommendation is to focus on the health of your plants as a whole rather than chemicals. When plants are at optimal health, they can easily ward off pest and disease without the use of chemicals.
OceanSolution provides your plants all 90 naturally residing mineral elements, while other products only focus on 3. Your plants are craving minerals they need to stay healthy and nutrient dense. When your plants have all of these minerals at their disposal, they can pick and choose which ones they need for optimal health. In return, your harvest will be full of minerals and nutrients you wont find in store bought food AND you can eliminate the use of chemicals completely!
We also like to incorporate other natural ways to keep weeds, disease and pest at bay. Here are a few tips;
- Spraying a diluted mixture of baking soda and dish soap helps with fungus and pest.
- Planting marigolds around your garden will attract wasps that feed on caterpillars.
- Mulching is always a great way to stop the sun from growing weeds.
- COMPANION PLANTING. It is a great way to evenly disperse nutrients to all plants as well as help ward of pest and disease!
