Tips for a Pesticide Free Garden

1) Healthy plants can defend themselves, feed the soil, which in turn helps the plants
2) Place the plant where it wants to be, if its a shade plant, put it in the shade etc.
3) Give your plants the amount of water that that plant needs so it doesn’t go into stress.
