Here you will find reasons to try good healthy Home Gardening.
You will also find some SECRETS of Good Gardeners
you would have not thought of that I have discovered in my research
for my new gardening ventures 2012-2014.
Before 31st December, I will place some Special Info and YouTube links
on how to grow your own strawberries and tomatoes - even with limited space.
And also, some really good ways you can feed your Veges and stimulate growth.
If you watch the following Videos, you will see just how synthetically many of our tomatoes and greens
are grown with chemicals and totally unnatural procedures, foreign to these plants. You will see
different aspects right from the start all the way to packing that gives you an idea of the foods
we are often buying and ingesting.
its made Greenhouse Tomatoes
- Greenhouse Tomato Farming
Our Veges need to be grown Naturally as Nature intended, not manufactured by Food Giants!!!
This also explains why store bought tomatoes are so expensive today.....hey?
GROWING TOMATOES NATURALLY

Full sun; ie, 8 hours direct sunlight daily
* Deep, free-draining,
* Consistent moisture
* Regular feeding
Shelter from strong winds
* Support of a stake (sometimes)
a huge choice available in tomatoes, so read the label carefully, or
ask the staff at the garden centre, to find out which type is which
when you’re shopping for seedlings. In general, though there are
two main types of tomato plants:
reach 2m or more and require the support of one or more stakes.
reach waist or knee height and do not need the support of a stake. In
the bush class, there are also dwarf and pendulous forms which are
suitable for hanging baskets.
a sunny spot. Dig the planting site over well. For each plant prepare
a square of soil 60cm x 60cm. Dig it over to the depth of the blade
of a spade then add two or three cupped handfuls of Dynamic Lifter.
Dig this through until the soil is fine and crumbly. If you are
planting more than one tomato plant, space them about a metre apart.
If you’re growing a tall-growing variety which will need a stake,
add the stake now, at planting time. As the tomato plant grows, tie
it to the stake to keep it stable and prevent damage from strong

ground. So, if at all possible, grow your tomatoes in the ground.
However, the best tomatoes for pots are the smaller-growing bush

wide as it is tall, or just a little taller, is good.

IMPORTANCE OF USING LIQUID SEAWEED!
With Organic Gardening, please remember that Tap Water contains 3 Halogens_ Bromide, Chloride and Fluoride that are toxic to our health. So try to use Tank Water or similar if possible. If you have to use tap water, it would be good to use Liquid Seaweed on a regular basis because it has a good content of Iodine that helps to counteract Chlorine, Fluoride and Bromine and heavy metals as well. If the Iodine in Kelp does this for us, then Liquid Seaweed (kelp) must do the same for our soil.
One bottle goes a long way. You dilute it with water. I use Seasol or Maxicrop. For added benefits, there is PowerFeed or GoGo Juice by Neutrog here in Australia that also has Fish Emulsion - highly recommended by certain Organic gardeners and nurseries.
The liquid Seaweed also protects plants from setback when you transplant them. Your plants will
also adapt to hot and cold weather conditions much better.
CAUTION TO GARDENERS!
I sited this advertisement 4am today
and thought to tell you immediately.
Water Crystals (from
the maker of Seasol)
crystals have the ability to absorb up to 500
weight in water with 95% of this water and nutrient readily available
for the plant to take it up when needed.
crystals are non toxic and have an effectiveness in the soil for up
to 5 years."
It contains Polyacrylamide!
Acrylamide is the building block for the polymer,
polyacrylamide, which is considered a non-toxic additive.
However, polyacrylamide may be contaminated with.....
FOLLOWING THIS, I DECIDED TO CHECK OUT THE WETTASOIL GRANULES BY AMGROW
THAT HAS THE TRUSTED ENVIRONMENTAL LABEL WITH THE FROG ILLUSTRATED.
IT WAS RECOMMENDED BY TWO WELL MEANING WORKERS AT MY LOCAL GARDEN NURSERY.
WHEN I ASKED THEM IF IT IS ORGANIC, THEY SAID "I DON'T THINK IT IS......OR.....I AM NOT SURE"

soluble cations including ammonium, potassium, magnesium
the home gardener is has three highly valuable attributes:
as a natural wetting agent (it is the major ingredient in the high
quality wetting agents) and as a distributor of water
Increases the effectiveness of fertilizers by holding nutrients and
making them available to plants when the plant needs them. Prevents
the leaching of nutrients through the soils and helps avoid the
nutrification of waterways.
Doesn’t wash away or decompose, aiding in long-term soil quality
improvements and better plant yields
long term soil quality and moisture levels
cation exchange in soil
