Organic plants are cultivated without chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. Certified organic plants have the U.S. Department of Agriculture seal guaranteeing that the product is truly organic. Growers use natural methods to grow plants that involve composting, crop rotation and the use of natural predators. Certain bugs, like lady bugs, eat offending insects that like to eat plants. Cornell University says that healthy soil is the basis for organic farming. Growers take extra time to prepare the soil by adding organic matter such as humus and tilling the ground. Organic plants are typically more expensive than conventionally grown plants because it takes longer to produce high yielding crops using old-fashioned methods.
Climate zones tell you what plants will survive the cold weather is your area. There are two climate zone calculations: USDA Zones and Sunset Zones.
Sunset zones are more reliable for our area since there are many micro-climates.
