PESTS & WEEDS
Most Natural Gardeners don’t tend to use a lot of pesticides or herbicides – not even home-made natural ones. This is largely because over time their gardens become more balanced ecosystems.
A more balanced mind-set also allows them to accept pests and weeds as a necessary part of that eco-system. Appreciating the collateral damage that pesticides and herbicides cause also tends to discourage their use.
Nevertheless, imbalance and infestations can happen in even the best managed gardens. When they do it is useful to have some natural solutions available.
However, ultimately there is no substitute for investing time and effort in alternatives. Prevention is always a better strategy than relying on a cure.
