Abstract:

It is quite feasible to garden without using synthetic chemicals. Pests and diseases can be managed using a variety of methods – removal, varietal choice, whilst weeds can be controlled by hand or by hoeing. Slugs and snails can be really troublesome and difficult to manage by removal, by barriers and by trapping. In order to maintain an attractive garden, the non-chemical gardener must be prepared to work extremely hard to keep their garden in good condition. The physical requirements can be difficult, strenuous and very fatiguing and in all probability do not leave much time for relaxation and enjoyment in the garden.
