Organic Gardening in Sri Lanka – Going Green at Home

With today’s focus on healthy living, in all probability, you are interested in eating right. Well here’s one way you can help ensure you enjoy nothing but the freshest and most nutritious produce available; start your own organic garden in Sri Lanka!

Why Sri Lanka

The island is blessed with a highly fertile soil and has a wonderful range of climates too which is why organic farming in Sri Lanka is popular as well; the mountain regions offer cooler climate while more tropical weather is experienced near the coast, ideal for different kinds of produce.

Anyone can begin

You don’t have to be an expert gardener to start your own organic garden. Even in a small patch of land, utilising organic compost you can grow your own veggies and fruits. Restaurants in the country such as rare at Residence have their own organic gardens too, which provide the natural ingredients for dishes on the menu.

Produce to make you proud

So what exactly could you grow in your organic garden? Well, as long as it suits the climate you could grow such vegetables as beetroot, spinach, carrot, potatoes and green chilli, while fruits that include mango, lime, jackfruit, papaya and even strawberries can be cultivated as well.

Keep in mind

Organic gardening be it in Sri Lanka or anywhere else in the world requires a lot of patience. Do keep in mind not to overwater plants, ensure there is enough sunlight, carefully pick out any harmful pests and look to use compost that can be made at home.
