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.

I purchased a BillyOh Tongue and Groove garden shed and its falling apart after 8 weeks. Customer service are not interested. Has anyone else had these problems ?

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?
