Step 5: Organics Outdoors
It’s even easier to grow organically outdoors. If you’ve got the space, start a compost pile with leaves and kitchen scraps as well as lawn clippings. You can even use spent rootballs and used bubblebag scraps. Turn the pile once a week with a shovel or compost fork and you’ll have plenty of free compost (a.k.a. “black gold”) to mix into your outdoor soil and use as a nutritious mulch for your pot plants.
Outdoors, the bigger your container or grow hole – the better. Loose organic mixes and plenty of sunshine encourage roots to grow at tremendous rates. This leads to huge bushes that yield over a pound-per-plant and more! Better yet, dig your own hole deep and fill it with a variety of organic materials for a custom “seasoned” spot. You can re-use it year after year by simply replenishing the mix.
Liquid seaweed and liquid fish will keep plants happily thriving in the sun. You can also use compost and guano teas with a healthy regimen of organic additives. Before long, you’ll be growing trees with trunks that need a hacksaw to take down!
