Don't move on too far Newb. Some gardeners are nature friendly. I don't kill things, I have a very high wildlife species count.

Sellers of chemicals would have you believe they're essential, but they're not.

When you start killing things you upset the balance, you kill the insects you don't want, but the killer doesn't discriminate, it kills insects. So next time the aphids turn up there are no ladybirds.

Kill the slugs, the amphibians eats therm, no frogs and toads

and once you have lifted a seed tray and found these

it's hard to justify chemical gardening

Who's going to the gym in the new year.
