Of course, with every garden comes the necessary shovels, rakes and the like. But the tools of the organic gardener are much more sophisticated than the average farmer. That is because there are more demands that come along the way of the organic gardener like the issue of creating the perfect compost and how to put it efficiently onto the bed of the garden.
Also, irrigation may also be an important aspect of organic gardening since the garden, of course, needs enough water to survive and be the best it can possibly be.
There are a large variety of tools and supplies that the organic gardener can work with. They all come in different shapes and sizes and some also stem from different backgrounds. Some are borne out of science and technology and a few are mainstays in business and agriculture. With that said, let’s look through a few tools and supplies that aid the farmer or everyday gardener in its endeavors.
This is definitely a must for any organic gardener because without it, you garden may not be considered organic at all! This is the bread and butter of your organic gardening experience. Use them wisely and optimize them for the benefit of your plant.
Some products, like the Twin N, is unique type of fertilizer that contains high yielding Nitrogen-fixing microbes that vastly improve the quality of the soil and of course, your crops. This can be applied in many ways, either using a foliar spray or using the irrigation system to transport it to specific areas in your garden.
Other fertilizers use a do-it-all approach like the Organic Link. This is very versatile and helps a good variety of plants, including vegetables and fruits. That is because it contains a diverse set of natural and biological ingredients, all aimed at different types of plants.
Examples are phosphate, silica, neem and zeolite. But given the huge variety of minerals that are contained in this, you must use them cautiously and only put small amounts per season. For 120mm pots, you may use around one tablespoon per season.
And a last example of a fertilizer is Beyond Organic. This takes a step further than the two previous ones by providing a healthy combination of enzymes, amino acids and essential fatty acids. So to speak, this is an excellent tonic for all types of plants.
With all these fertilizers listed down, the gardener definitely has a lot of options to ponder on and is assured that whether his/her garden is diverse or not, there are products that cater to the gardeners specific demands.
For some gardeners, plant protection takes a premium over any other tool. And that is understandable especially in central areas where natural calamities are very common. They want to protect their investment not only for aesthetic reasons, but it also makes sense for business and the community in general.
For those who may be planting trees in areas around the community, there are tree guards in store for you. They are usually made of UV stabilized plastic that heightens the chances of your young tree making it in the future. Furthermore, it reduces the damage weather or animals could bring.
And of course, you cannot go wrong with sprays. It takes the load off from carrying a sprinkler and pouring every individual plant. The convenience large sprays can give is definitely immeasurable.
A product is the Solo 7.5 Liter Sprayer, with its convenient pump-up feature and also has an adjustable nozzle so that you could reach the farther ends of the garden without moving an inch. You may also use this for liquid-based fertilizers because these types necessitate the aid of an accurate spray like the product described.
With all the products described, the contemporary organic gardener doesn’t have much to worry about given how technology has made things easier for him/her. There are fertilizers that cater to any specific type of garden, diverse or not, and of course provides the necessary nutrients to help the plant reach its full potential.
And also, plant protection tools and sprays are available to the organic farmer so as to heighten the probability that young plants will make it alive and help them get the nutrients that they need. With all these things said, I hope that you’ll be more interested in organic gardening given all the conveniences technology has brought to the table.
