In the new e-book by Gardena, key aspects of sustainable gardening are presented in an entertaining way. From soil health, garden design and the conscious use of resources to strengthening plants and recycling, the brochure whets the appetite for long-term, nature-oriented gardening.
With a garden that is close to nature, plant lovers not only contribute to climate protection, but also create a home for a variety of plants and animals. That not only benefits the local ecosystem, but also offers the opportunity to rediscover the own garden and to save money and resources.
Winter is slowly coming to an end. Snowdrops and crocuses are tentatively sticking their heads up towards the sun. Gardeners are getting restless, too – anxious to get back to it as they plan their season of gardening: choosing new plants for the balcony, getting the rainwater tank into shape and finally, in the spring, getting at those weeds again. And there’s one word that fits right in with those good intentions: sustainability.
Everyone is talking about it, but the issue seems too vast to do anything about as an individual. Even small steps contribute to more sustainability and gardeners and plant lovers are already on the right path because gardens themselves are intrinsically sustainable. Every green space, balcony and terrace is a small ecosystem that flourishes with expert and skilful care. The value of these green lungs should not be underestimated. Especially regarding biodiversity, soil sealing and microclimates, private gardens are a valuable addition to regional nature reserves. Their total surface area is often even larger than the nature reserves in the vicinity.
Gardening with nature
Sustainable garden maintenance involves making sparing use of water, a precious resource, as well as choosing natural fertilisers, carefully selecting suitable plants, and taking time to learn about their needs and care. It also means allowing some perceived disorder in the garden so that animals can find shelter and to promote the diversity of insects and plants. Maintaining a sustainable garden is not a huge, impossible task, but rather a lifelong project involving small changes. Doing so conserves soil, supports nature and offers gardening enthusiasts hands-on fun and the chance to save money.
