For an all-natural pesticide that will not harm your garden, mix onion, garlic, or chives with plain water. This mixture can then be sprayed directly on the plants. Chop the garlic, chives and onions up into very fine pieces, and then mix with half a cup of water and strain into a spray bottle.
The ideal temperature to set your thermostat for indoor plants is between 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit during the daylight hours. Your plants will not grow well if it is too cold. If you don’t like keeping your home that temperature in the winter, you may wish to consider getting a heat lamp, instead, to keep your organic plants the correct temperature.
Use your own seeds for gardening in later seasons. This lets you ensure that your plants are organic from start to finish. Take an earlier season of plants and allow them to go to seed before you remove them. This means that not only are your plants growing without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, the seeds were grown without them either.
Do some research on the botanical insecticides that are available in your area, many of which are extremely helpful in preventing pests from invading your garden. All insecticides are strong, including botanical ones. Keep in mind, however, that the biological composition of botanical insecticides can cause them to quickly decay and disappear.
Build a garden full of diversity. A larger variety of plants in your garden will attract more wildlife. Plant all different types of plants in your garden to try to recreate a natural environment. When you do this you and any guests you have can just sit back and appreciate all that you’ve done, and the diversity in your garden. Something you can feel satisfied with for years to come.
