Focusing on composts, pests, weeds, and soil, this comprehensive guide to organic gardening explains how to get off the chemical treadmill, stay earth-friendly, and still enjoy an abundance of fragrant and beautiful plants. Complete with checklists and planners, it discusses everything from crop rotation to making your own "green manure," and from enhancing biodiversity to using botanical pesticides. Build the foundation for a healthy garden by identifying its soil type, and properly nurturing it. Find out which weeds are useful, and how to control unwanted varieties. Encourage "good predators," such as ladybirds and hoverflies, and plant to repel pests. With the most up-to-date ideas for time management, seasonal planting, and more, it's the best way to make the most of a garden...naturally.
