Grow Your Own: Organic Garden Guide for Mulching, Feeding and Pest Control
This second installment of Darlington's organic gardening guide advises on the use of organic mulch, feeding plants, and pest control in the garden.
If you've been working very hard on your garden, planting, cultivating, weeding, watering, etc., you can relax now because your work is done. If your seedlings are up to at least two inches or so, apply a mulch and then forget about garden work except for picking harvest.
