About this book

This is a practical book on how to garden in harmony with nature. The author, a leading National Trust gardener, reveals that the techniques at work in grand gardens are just as applicable for all gardeners.

Some of the advice included covers how to make a plant healthy from organic spraying with milk, making perfect compost, surviving droughts and downpours with low-watering regimes and keeping plants healthy in water-logged soil. He also considers the use of beneficial insects to control pests, alternatives to pesticides and fungicides and gardening by the moon with simple and scientific experiments in biodynamic gardening.
