Choosing the Right Organic Plants
Choosing the right plants for the area will make an organic garden much more productive.
When choosing plants for your organic garden, there are a few things to consider. Your local garden center can help you answer all of these questions:
- What plants are designed to grow in your area? Those will have the best chance of producing high-quality, good-tasting vegetables.
- What diseases are common to your area, and are there varieties that are resistant to those diseases?
- How much care are the plants going to need? Are you choosing plants that have more requirements than you have time for?
