Organic gardeners focus their energy into increasing the natural health of their soil, choosing appropriate plant varieties, and working with nature to produce a healthy and productive garden.
The organic approach to growing recognises that all living things depend on one another, from pests and soil to flowers and wildlife, all are inter-related - even us. We are all responsible for how we treat the soil and the environment, to safeguard it for future generations.
By using organic methods for your kitchen garden, allotment, or community garden, you can 'grow your own' free from pesticides in healthy soil maintained with compost from recycled materials.
About Garden Organic
Garden Organic is the UK national charity dedicated to researching and promoting sustainable growing, and has been at the forefront of organic horticulture for over 50 years. Garden Organic has aimed to ensure this app will be of real practical use and cover every aspect of vegetable growing using organic methods.
Organic gardening methods harness the natural cycles and processes that promote plant growth. The app will help users care for the environment and to cut their ‘carbon footprint’ by ‘reducing, reusing and recycling’ resources, while creating a flourishing growing space.
Why organic gardening matters
Gardening and growing offers great benefits for us all - benefits for the environment, for people’s health and wellbeing, for food security and for building stronger communities. Our outdoor growing space, be it the private garden, community garden, allotment, school garden, or just a small space nearby, is a place where we relax and recharge both spiritually and physically. It is also a place where we can learn and reconnect with nature and the food we eat and where we can take practical action to adopt sustainable lifestyles.
Using the organic approach to gardening and growing, which Garden Organic has been promoting for over 50 years, will ensure that these benefits can be achieved and enjoyed to their full potential.

This handbook is divided into easy to read chapters packed full of Do-It-Yourself gardening and landscaping tips, information and cost-saving advice. You could even increase the value of your home!
Have you ever wanted to make your own vegetable garden or wild-flower garden? "Gardening" provides all the inspiration, tips and ideas for you to get started. Perfect for the experienced and novice gardener alike.
If you are like most people, you probably tried your hand at gardening at some point in your life. And, if you were successful, kudos to you! Many of us have that proverbial "black thumb," however, and are slightly less successful - actually a lot less successful.
No matter which category you fall under, you might want to rethink your ideas and gardening practices. Science has gardening on a commercial level down to an exact process.
Gone are the days of the small farmer who grew fresh vegetables and sold them on a roadside stand. Some even sold them to local grocery stores.
And, while we do admire the displays at the grocery today, it's a good bet that much of that produce came from countries far away and were not even ripe for picking.
Unfortunately for us, in the world we live in today, our vegetables are grown in pest free environments, engineered to look good and are often picked and stored in huge areas until they are shipped to our local grocers.
Indeed, while the produce looks beautiful, it's often lacking in good flavor and sometimes borders on tasting like cardboard!
Ask yourself these three questions:
1.What if there were a way to turn it all around for your family?
2.What if you were able to recover a new enthusiasm for your food?
3.What if there were a way to dare to eat healthy?
Well, you can and it's much easier than you may think.
Okay, since you are still reading it's a pretty good bet that you have either tried your hand at gardening or would like to learn how to do it.
While there are tons of expensive books that you can buy that will give you lots of "theory" there are few that actually give you hands on step by step experience from a guy who has done it.
And, while most of those authors are very well known and icons in their venue, how often do you see others actually change their gardening habits as a result of reading them?
Not very often, I'd wager. Why do you think that is? Are the principles not sound? Of course they are. Is the content faulty? Not at all. Well, then what is the problem?
Usually, the problem is. . .are you ready. . .desire and belief!
It's easy to believe that a "gardening guru" can build a successful garden! After all the gardeners you watch on T.V. have a whole production staff to do nothing but make sure the guy's garden is perfect right down to the last little leaf.
You believe that it's impossible for you to master gardening like the guru so you lose what? The desire! So what's the problem with you? You've never been able to believe that YOU can do the same.
Well, we're here to tell you today that you can. You just need to believe it. And how do you do that? Where do you get that kind of knowledge? Glad you asked. You need our handy little guide called "Your Organic Gardening Guide!"
and some of the best parts are . . .
• It isn't written by a T.V. guru. It’s very easy to read.
• It doesn’t require much time to find out what works and what doesn't.
• Cost of the guide is minimal – you'll laugh at the price!
Everything is there to help you understand that you CAN do this and most importantly you can learn very quickly how to garden ORGANICALLY.
The very fact that a regular guy just like us has been able to provide his family with their own healthy vegetables is reason enough to jump at the chance to learn how you can do it too. Take a look at what you'll uncover:
Learn how to get started the right way.
Find out how to get rid of pests without harsh chemicals.
Discover what fertilizers to use.
Feeding your garden and more!
We truly hope you see the potential here, and realize how important this offer is!
Please enojoy the preview and upgrade to full version with commercial free.
This ambiguity may bring confusion for an amateur gardener who would like to foster their own garden, a private plot, or a backyard, without engaging any professional landscape designers or gardeners.
Now, as you use the Plants by Names app, and if you know any name of a plant you want, you could find out other names of this plant, to know what exactly to look for in nurseries, garden stores, or among your friends who are just the same amateurs like yourself.
As a nice complement, there is a map for you to find nurseries where you could possibly get the plant you need.
You know a common/vernacular name, while you need to find out the plant’s scientific/Latin name.
E.g.: A plant was known to you as “Cigar tree”, and using the Plants by Names app you find out that its scientific name is Catalpa bignonioides.
You know a scientific/Latin name, while you need to find out a common name of the plant you are looking for.
E.g.: A plant was known to you as Ajuga reptans. You checked with the Plants by Names app to find out that it may commonly be referred to as “Bugle” and various derivatives from this word (Blue Bugle, Bugleherb, Bugleweed, and so forth).
Sometimes a plant may be known by more than one scientific/Latin name, and you would like to know all of them.
E.g.: You were recommended to plant a linden known by its Latin name Tilia grandifolia. Checking with the Plants by Names app will let you know that some nurseries may also feature this tree as Tilia platyphyllos.
A plant may have several common names. You may be aware of a certain common name, while you might need to find out any other common names of the same plant for future references.
E.g.: You were recommended to plant some “Wig Tree”. You check with the Plants by Names app to find out that it may also be commonly referred to as “Venetian Sumac”, or “Eurasian Smoketree”, or just as “Smoke Tree” or “Smoke Bush” (while it’s scientific name is “Cotinus coggygria”, or “Rhus cotinus”).
Good luck with your gardening and thank you for choosing the Plants by Names application!
It currently features information on how 55 of the Beatles most popular songs came to be written, and more will be added.
It is ordered out in 'British' Album order (from Please Please Me to Let It Be), making it easy to see how the Beatles evolved throughout their career. Being first inspired by simple Rock 'n' Roll greats such as Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry; and girl groups such as the Shirelles on their earlier albums. Through to evolving their own style and techniques on songs such as I feel fine and Rain, and then becoming largely independent song writers in their later years, such as George Harrison's Something, Ringo Starr's Octopus's Garden, John Lennon's Across the Universe, and Paul McCartney's Yesterday.
It is interesting to see the inspiration of many of The Beatles songs, such as a packet of cereals on Good Morning, a teenage runaway on She's leaving home, and a painting by Julian Lennon on Lucy in the sky with Diamonds.
The App is ideal for fans who want to know more about how the fantastic four came to write their music and who was the leader for individual The Beatles songs. It is based on my work at beatleslyrics.eu, and I hope that you have as much fun learning about the meanings of The Beatles songs as I did writing about then.
One of the most difficult things about dealing with thinning bones is keeping on top of all of the daily lifestyle changes required to treat the condition.
OsteoTrack calculates a bone health management plan -- based on your personal circumstances -- and provides an easy to read overview of the steps required to deal with your condition.
Osteoporosis Treatment Track
In addition to any medication that you may or may not require, if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia it is important to make lifestyle changes that help to strengthen your bones.
OsteoTrack provides you with the key information required to do this. You can quickly see the correct amount of nutrients that you should incorporate into your daily diet, and the weight bearing exercises that you should carry out to help strengthen bones.
Osteoporosis Prevention Track.
It is estimated that 50% of women, and 20% of men over the age of fifty will suffer a fracture over the remainder of their lifetime due to weak bones!
Although many of the osteoporosis risk factors, such as age and race, are unavoidable, many of them are in your control. By educating yourself about the condition and following the simple recommendations provided by OsteoTrack you will be able to lower the risk of having weak bones substantially.
In addition to giving an easy to follow summary of the nutrients and exercises required to help strengthen bones, OsteoTrack also provides in-depth information on the Osteoporosis condition, on bone strengthening nutrients, weight bearing exercises, and on the benefits and side effects of osteoporosis medicines.
Core topic areas include:
What is osteoporosis? Bone Testing. Risk Factors. Diet.
Bone-building nutrients: including information on natural foods rich in minerals and vitamins such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, and the vitamins D and K.
Recommended weight bearing exercises, such as walking and Tai Chi.
Guides on the effectiveness, benefits and drawbacks of medications such as bisphosphonates and Forteo.
OsteoTrack is ideal for people who want to do all they can to prevent osteoporosis and osteopenia, and for those who have been diagnosed with one of the conditions and want to understand all that they can about it.
A lot of work has gone into making OsteoTrack an invaluable tool in your fight against thinning bones, but be aware that everyone is an individual and their bones behave differently. It is important to realize that OsteoTrack is not a replacement for your medical practitioner, but should be used as an educational tool to help you arrive at decisions beneficial to your bone health.
The information contained within the App is sourced from publicly available material and is provided as an education service and does not construct medical advice.
It is important to consult with your medical practitioner before carrying out any exercise or nutritional program, this is especially the case if you have osteoporosis or another medical condition and/or are on any form of medication.
Although I have ensured that I have researched all topics fully before writing about them, it is possible for inaccuracies to creep in, especially as different countries have different guidelines for the RDA of nutrients, and for the medical procedures given for the treatment of osteoporosis.
It should be noted that by using this App that you agree that the information is made available with the understanding that the author and publisher are not providing medical, physiological, or nutritional counseling services.
The information on the App is aimed at people with thinning bones and does not cover all of the uses, side-effects, and interactions of medications and nutrition programs.
Liability for individual actions or omissions based upon the contents of the OsteoTrack App is expressly disclaimed.
