Natural and Organic Gardening
Ideas for the Home Garden
“Roses and Gardens” is
all about natural and organic ways of home gardening.
The hints and tips featured here come from my experiences in my
own garden. I only write about the plants and trees that I have
You will find that I concentrate on natural methods of gardening
using home-made composts, mulches and non-toxic sprays.
I have tried many safe, non-poisonous sprays with varying results.
These I will include for you in the organic gardening section.
I also have a gardening blog attached to this website
that you may like to visit. It is a more topical journal of the
actual things that are happening in my garden right now.

I think it's important to remember that every garden is
different because of varying soils and climates. Even pests and
diseases have their preferences!
Micro-climates within each garden need to be considered
carefully. For example areas under trees are very different from
open, sunny areas with regard to temperature and soil texture.
Areas protected by walls have a twofold climate – they reflect
the sun strongly but they also protect against wind.
Every garden is different and has its own rewards and
challenges. And that is one of the most exciting parts.
You’ll find a varied collection of gardening articles and some strange
recipes – that work. So check out these pages and see if you can find some
tips and hints that you can apply to your own gardening.
