Natural pesticides are a proven way to tackle pests in the garden without toxic chemicals. Most use a simple approach and simple ingredients.
The garden takes you out of the built-up world and lets you connect with nature. It's a place to lose yourself in a whole range of activities. Or you can just sit back and enjoy the greenery. Then at the end of the day you can look at what you've done and see what you've achieved (and taste it too if you're growing fruit or vegetables).
