I harvest: "I cut and grind"
When flowering, cut and grind the plants with the mower. Allow to dry on site for 8 days. Bury plant matter on the ground or put it in a composter.4 to 5 weeks are needed for these plants to decompose before planting vegetables or flowers
Straw the soil to prevent the development of unwanted herbs. This is the most effective way to avoid using weedkillers. You will also limit evaporation and therefore the risk of drying out: mulching reduces watering.
Promote the presence of auxiliary insects such as ladybugs and chrysopes, which feast on aphids, by offering them lodgings at the four corners of the garden.
Collect rainwater. This allows plants to be watered at a lower cost with less limestone water without wasting the tap water.
