This is a brilliant book.
THE book on organic
Modern and easy to follow!
Organic Gardening (RHS Encyclopaedia of Practical
Gardening) by Pauline M. Pears and Sue Stickland
Illustrated with step-by-step artworks, this guide
dispels myths about organic gardening and explains all aspects of organic
garden management, including the planning of an organically-balanced
environment, soil preparation, pests and diseases, weed control, crop care
and cultivation, and also contains a year-round checklist for instant
This book is everything the beginner or intermediate
gardener could want in an introduction to organic gardening. It is well
organised and easy to read, with excellent illustrations. Sections are short, so
you can get what you need and get back to the garden quickly. It is easy to dip
in and out of. Moreover, it makes organic gardening sound just as easy as it
really is. If you're not a convert, buy it and start - if you are, get it to
improve your skills and broaden your knowledge.
Going organic? I would recommend this
book! I have found this book an extremely useful reference. I
began organic gardening last year and have found this book a good all-rounder
for the skills you need as an organic gardener e.g. worm composting, building
compost bins, controlling pests & diseases, green manures and lots more. I
imagine it would be most useful for those new to working organically, but I
think it will have something to offer for everyone.
suggestions and ideas it
offers for organic gardening can easily be transferred from the book to gardens
of any size. This is especially good for the beginner because, as with other
books in this series, it talks you through everything step-by-step, without
over-simplifying any of the information. All topics are covered equally, from
growing flowers and vegetables to protecting them pests using natural methods.
This is a superb book for anyone interested in becoming an organic gardener. Its
contents will please novices and experienced gardeners alike.
