Organic gardening has really taken off in recent years because of the pleasure that gardening traditionally provides as well as the added benefits of being able to eat healthy and environmentally safe fruits and vegetables.
The obstacle many face is one of constraints – both of space and time as gardens have traditionally needed a lot of space and are slow to grow. The advent of instant organic farming has now opened up the possibility of having their own gardens to people who, until now, thought that it could not fit into their lives.
The term instant organic gardening is still relatively new and many still question its benefits.
The last decade has seen a huge upswing in the demand for organic fruits and vegetables and all organic food stores and most supermarkets stock them. However, the organic foods bought from supermarkets may not be as environmentally friendly as most people think – they have often been flown in from thousands of miles away and this has only added to pollution levels. Besides this, these foods are often frozen for transport and this, besides consuming lots of electricity, has a detrimental effect on the foods nutritional value.
That is why organic gardening has become so popular – it offers an economical and healthier alternative to store bought “organic” produce.
One major reason why organic gardening has not caught on more is the time and effort needed to maintain a garden. This is where instant organic gardening enters the picture. An instant organic garden is really a ready to use garden consisting of a pot containing soil with a plant growing in it. The pot may be either a permanent one suitable for indoor use or a bio-degradable one that can be planted directly in the ground. Since the plant is completely organic, as are the soil in the pot and any soil supplements that come with it, everything is completely natural and organic.
Yes instant organic gardens make sense for people who do not have to space or the time to grown their own gardens from scratch but want the benefits of have natural chemical free produce available to them.
Of course, one plant is never enough but once the ease and health benefits of instant organic gardening are felt, there is nothing to stop you from expanding your garden as much as the time and space you have available permits.
