About this book

In Bob's common-sense style, "Going Organic" proves to be an approachable, practical and pleasurable read. With his vast experience as an organic gardener, he takes you through essential gardening skills, the common pitfalls, cultural, pest and disease problems (identifying each one and how you can combat it), and how to help your garden to fix itself with natural solutions like bird boxes and companion gardening. He also reassures you that you don't have to be totally organic or break your back or bank balance - the common problems are identified and outmanoeuvred by wit and cunning and simple safe remedies rather than reaching for a bottle of poison. This book contains all the knowledge and tips you need to solve most garden problems while becoming a more competent gardener, more naturally.

'Flowerdew is the patron saint of organic vegetable growers.' Daily Telegraph
