Best Organic Vegetable Gardening in Vancouver
Organic Vegetable Gardening
Growing vegetables without using chemical fertilizers and pesticides is organic gardening. In organic vegetable gardening we focus on building the soil first. We feed it with organic matter every year so the soil will grow better vegetables.
My Living Canvas will locate your vegetables where they will get full sun (at least 6 – 8 hours per day). We like to use raised beds rather than traditional rows. This makes for efficient use of space and minimizes the growth of weeds. Alternatively, if space is an issue we find that some vegetables are very attractive and can substitute for "annuals" in your mixed borders. We are experts in helping you organize your outdoor space for maximum growth and enjoyment.
My Living Canvas will help you grow vegetables that are easy to grow and mature quickly such as tomatoes, green beans, green onions, lettuces, Swiss chard, radishes, cucumbers and zucchini.
- We avoid planting vegetables from the same family in the same area every year to reduce
the possibilities of pests and/or diseases
- We like to do companion planting. Planting two plants that are beneficial to each other seems to have some positive effects in dealing with pests
