An organic home garden will produce great-tasting, fresh ingredients that are not only more flavorful, but also healthier for you. For example, chemical-free soils have a higher nutrient content than soil that is chemically treated. That means organic food generally has a higher vitamin and mineral content than non-organic food. But don’t just take our word for it. There is plenty of research to back up this assertion.
According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, organic crops and crop-based foods have anywhere from a 19%-69% higher concentration of antioxidants than their non-organic counterparts. This is likely due to pesticides that are used on commercially grown crops, which deplete the soil’s nutritional value.
As summer approaches and the days last longer, your indoor plants will have more access to sunlight and as a result, the plants will grow and the roots will spread more and more. As they do so, they will begin to require more water, more nutrition, and more space to thrive in. That’s why it’s the perfect time to repot your indoor plants!
A little bit of work now can ensure optimal health for your plants as they continue to grow. There are actually a number of benefits that your plants will reap from being repotted.
