For me it is a balance. Just as we, now and then, take to medicines for temporary relief so we can resort to chemicals to reaolve a garden issue. Taking a paracetomol for a rare headache does not affect our general well being. It would do if taken regularly. We don't let mother nature heal an open wound do we?
here I grow fruit, veg and plants of all sorts organically and healthily. Rarely do I use any chemicals.....one reason why I do not grow roses (think of all the noxious chemicals people apply,to them on a regular basis! ) Now and then a treatment...whether nematodes or chemical...is called for.
Or lose your plants and just grow weeds
