Nestled within the pages of Practical Organic Gardening sprouts tips on homegrown, healthy edibles and gardening practices that will nourish your family, pets, and beneficial wildlife. Organic gardening isn’t just for environmentalists anymore. Interest in organic gardening has soared in recent years as gardeners have become more aware of the quality of their food and the impact of pesticides and chemicals on our world.
The book starts out strong while setting the stage: Why Organic Gardening? It then progresses into soils, soil amendments and fertilizers before heading into a discussion on water use in the garden. Next up is a review of cultural conditions and growing methods to maximize plant growth and garden health. No organic gardening book would be complete without a chapter on insects and disease pathogens. This book has it and more. Final chapters on lawns and organic container gardening round out the book contents.
