About this book

The interest in organic fruit and vegetables has never been greater. As people grow ever more suspicious of the chemicals used in food production, more and more gardeners are keen to grow their own vegetables and fruit while steering away from synthetic insecticides and pesticides.

In this book the author draws on both his training as a biochemist and his extensive gardening experience to explain exactly why and how to garden organically. He includes ground plans for gardens of all sizes, all the information needed on organic techniques such as soil care and composting, and an extensive illustrated directory of fruit and vegetables, with cultural information and recommended varieties.

'Inspirational ground plans to suit gardens of all sizes, and lots of information on organic techniques such as companion planting, composting and choosing suitable varieties to minimise the need for pest controls ... a useful reference book for any organically minded gardener' Kitchen Garden
