Roses have a long and colorful history. They have been symbols oflove, beauty, war, and politics. The rose is, according to fossilevidence, 35 million years old. In nature, the genus Rosa has some 150 species spread throughout the Northern Hemisphere,from Alaska to Mexico and including northern...
Composting helps the environment by making free nutrients that arenot factory processed. Composting worms help keep the cycle ofdecomposition going without giving off hideous gasses.
An example of a blue or purple flower whose spelling begins withthe letter "c" is columbine.
Organic organisms affect erosion by influencing soil formationprocesses and soil properties. They assist in the formation ofhumus by decomposing leaves and twigs. The decomposition intoorganic matter influences macro- and micro-nutrient amounts, suchas of calcium, magnesium and potassium, and pH...
Lifting a plant from a nursery bed and planting in its permanent home is one type of replanting. Another type is when a field is planted, but is lost early in the season due to flooding or other factors, and the field is planted again that same season.
Animal droppings can be turned into compost fertilizer. Forexample, currently, the most common and valuable processingmethod is to turn cow dung/manure into sellable organic fertilizer. Cowdung is a derived product from wastes produced by cattle, providinghigh levels of organic...
A compost pile is not self-sustaining as it requires human effortto apply material for composting and to remove the preparedcompost.
Organic matter that may be changed to humus can be found in bambooleaves.
Organic layers are part of the soil.
Organic food is better because non-organic food is sprayed withchemicals to help foodstuffs stay in season even though syntheticsprays are hazardous for people.
Bacteria that help break down rich organic compounds includeBacillus and Trichoderms species.
Yes, wood can be put in compost bins because it is an organicsubstance and, like all things organic, it can decompose. Thesmaller the wood is, the quicker it decomposes.
No, you do not necessarily need worms in your compost. If yourcompost is fermenting properly from bacterial activity it will betoo hot for worms to survive in it.
While there are certainly exceptions, modern agribusiness-type industrial farming generally takes less of the farmer's time per unit harvested . It does not speed up the rate of maturation of the crop, it simply means s/he can culture more acres than with organic farming. On average, a single...
Compost is used in most compost piles because it is edible bybeneficial macro- and micro-organisms and because it rots easily.
With diligence, knowledge and careful planning, organic gardeningcan be very effective. Organic farmers can consistently provide ahealthful product which is frequently more attractive and tastesbetter than their industrially-produced counterparts. It takes morelabor and must be very carefully...
A compost heap has holes at the bottom and in the side to allow foraeration and drainage.
Composted animal manure has been left to mature, to take away anychance of it burning your plants, as can happen with some manures.For example, chicken manure is particularly high in nitrogen andammonia, both of which can burn both roots and leaves if appliedfresh in too large doses. Composting...
A compost bin will turn organic waste into natural fertilizer.
The main disadvantage that the content and strength varies so it is difficult to add the correct quantity.
No, coprosma cannot survive without water because it is a plant.
Generally speaking, the main difference is in the amount of laborinvolved. Organic farming typically takes more labor to produce thesame kind of crop as in intensive farming, due to the lack ofindustrially-produced pesticides and fertilizers. While there areorganic pesticides and fertilizers, there...
At least one inch (2.54 centimeters) a year is the amount ofcompost that should be put in a garden. This will allow nutrientsto be put into the soil. If you are looking to correct physicalproblems, such as bad drainage and poor structure of the soil), addtwice that.

Compost is used to add nutrients to the soil, in other words it will definatly make your garden grow
I believe so.Diluted with 3 parts water to 1 part urine.
Start the pile when it is warm out. Make the pile three parts "brown" (dead and drying stuff) and one part "green" (recently growing stuff). Also shred the stuff so it is small. Covering is a good idea too, it will keep the moister in and the rain from washing away. and string the pile once a week...
Another word for natural fertilizers is organic fertilizers.
Because they want to use it in their gardens.For one thing, composting all organic matter (kitchen scraps, yard waste, manure, etc.) reduces the amount of garbage that has to go into landfills. That's the altruistic answer.For the "what's in it for me?" answer: compost makes plants grow strong and...
for the plant to grow well
Take the Fresh or Semi-fresh leaves and bury them in about 1/2 ft. of fertilizer and sit inside in a window of direct sunlight for about 2-3 maybe 4 weeks. This method above will compost the leaves in your house. Normally, to use any type of leaf as effective fertilizer it will need to break down....
Compost adds essential nutrients, helps conserve moisture, improves soil friability and structure. It may also contain helpful invertebrates such as worms and also micro-organisms.

What is good for the compost? it is what we call greens and browns. greens are Nitrogen/ protein rich things such as; fresh grass clipings, manure, klep meal, sea weed, crushed eggshells, sour milk, coffee grounds, basicly stuff that was just recently growing. Browns are carbon rich stuff such as...
oraganic food just probably came from the farm raised from the farm.these are like vegetables and meats from the farm that has been grown from natural way. they are harvested from natural way and being distribute fresh from farm to markets.
Organic fruits and vegetables simply means they were grown without and pesticides or synthetic materials.
The smaller the particles, the faster they break down. So, newpaper pulp would break down much faster than a whole sheet of newspaper.
There isn't really a best. But, a good compost would be,... VEGETABLES!!! Anything natural cut up into many little pieces will do
organic farming is an agricultural system that seeks to provide you, the consumer, with fresh, tasty and authentic food while respecting natural life-cycle systems.
Earthworms stir up the dirt and spread the nutrients to other plants and trees. They also eat the dead leaves so there won't be dead leaves sitting around everywhere.

We call it compost or humus, green if fresh, brown if dried out.
You may be asking about the forsythia bush. It has small, bright yellow flowers covering the branches even before the leaves have leafed out. When pruning, last year's woody stems are removed near the base of the bush, leaving new growth to produce flowers and leaves.
Increases in the budgeted household costs, the degree of environmental pollution, the number of landfills, the use of nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium fertilizers, and the volume of trash are among the events that happen when composting is not done. Composting produces dark-colored, fresh-smelling,...
Sure, you can put moss in your compost.

As an organic weed killer, vinegar works very well. The higher thepercentage of acetic acid in the vinegar, the better. Pour, sprayor paint the vinegar directly on the weed and you will see itwithering away in about 24 hours. Be careful not to get it on thegrass though, as it will damage it.
rotten food and animal poop
Nitrogen, carbon, microbes and water.
of course organic festisides is the best because it is natural and you can assure that the plant that goes with organic pesticides are not harmful not like the pesticides because they contain chemicals that sometimes the plants intakes it and what we all benefited from it.
