Organic rose gardening allows you to have happy, healthy rose bushes, which are protected from natural attacks of harmful agents, as well as to keep from polluting the soil with unnecessary chemicals. With an organic rose garden, your success is two-fold.
First, organic agents used on rose gardens, including foods and pesticides, maintain the proper balance for your roses to thrive without striving to resist certain types of fungi that are common among rose bushes. Chemicals in these products kill important organisms within the soil where you’ve planted your rose garden that inhibits the progress of several types of fungus. If you use an all-natural substance to fertilize, fumigate, and feed your roses, they will actually be stronger and healthier. You’ll also avoid having unnecessary chemical pollution in your rose garden.
Organic agents are also healthier for a gardener to use because there are no chemicals involved. There is no chance of inhaling toxic fumes as you spray pesticide or fertilizer onto your rose garden. Even if a few particles end up in your eyes, nose, or mouth, the organic materials will be of no harm to most rose gardeners.
When choosing your organic agents, there are several periodicals that advertise various brands and their benefits to you, the consumer. As a gardener, you may also wish to research different products online or at the library to determine the least harmful and most effective sources on the market.
For gardeners who currently have roses in bloom, switching to organic materials can improve the life of your roses, destroying harmful agents through the act of not killing important organisms in the soil that are inhibiting the growth rate or number of blooms your rose bushes can feed. Think about the good you’ll be doing for the environment as well, no longer dumping harmful chemicals into our precious earth.
