Everyone knows pesticides and synthetic fertilizers aren’t good for us or our environment. Yet, you may think your plants won’t flourish without using chemicals. This book will help you change your mind.
Organic gardening is so much more than simply finding safer ways to kill pests. It’s about understanding nature and working with nature to grow great vegetables. J. Howard Garrett and C. Malcolm Beck use their years of experience in organic gardening to give you clear-cut, step-by-step instructions for growing vegetables, fruits, nuts, and other food crops the natural way.
This book shows you how to have a healthy soil and recommends environmentally safe products and even some homemade remedies to control pests and diseases in your garden. You’ll get nuts-and-bolts information on companion planting and the use of beneficial insects.
This colorful book describes more than 100 food plants and gives specific information on the growth habits, culture, harvest, and storage of each-as well as suggestions for preventing or solving common problems associated with them.
