I think being partly organic is better than nothing, it's becoming more popular in this age of recycle healthy eating and enviromental awearness society in which we find ourselves. I dont use chemicals because I don't think theres a need, if something I grow has a bad year I just think i'll try again next year. I lost my cucumber plant last year early as well as my corgette but my tomatoes, lettuce, spring onions and potato's were great all free from chemical use.

If you can't have 'partly organic', can you have 'more organic' or 'less organic'? I think you can. Which would be the more organic course of action to treat pests in a conservatory - dose with insecticide or throw everything out and buy new? Or doesn't it count as gardening as it's indoors?
