I’ve found in my garden that the cost of using organic fertilizer is insignificant compared to the benefit it provide, especially the increase in plant health and yield, plus the decrease in pests. So why not Starting your organic vegetable garden today!

Hi Chokri! Can you elaborate a bit on what fertilizers you use and how you apply them? Also does it look this lush year round and how do you achieve that (lots of interplanting?) Your garden is the kind I'd like to have and it's getting closer but more tips are always welcome. :)

Hi!
i use only well rotted chicken manure.  In addition to its nitrogen and other food content, it is high in humus and contains bacteria which improve the soil!
