As newbies to having a veg plot in London, we bought 4 gardening books - from trendy urban gardening to the most basic of 'all you need to know about' type guides, but I can honestly say that since we picked this one up we've barely turned a page of the others.

Growing veg is a scarey experience at first, some books make it sound so hard that you think it'd be a miracle if anything comes up at all, but Hamilton's guide gives you all the info and advice you'll need while drawing on some valuable and well-learned experience, making it all feel achievable and fascinating.

If you're buying this then you care about what goes on your plants and into your food. Hamilton is honest about the fact that when it comes to alternatives to nasty chemicals and pesticides, it may not be that he, or anyone, has all the answers, but he takes you through what he's learnt and encourages you to find your own creative solutions. His honesty and genuine passion really make you want to fight for your little patch, learning more year after year.

Geoff rocks. If you don't love this book I'll eat my gardening gloves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch!! 9 Dec 2005
By g1bbs - Published on Amazon.com
I am a beginning gardener who wants to learn to garden without chemicals or pesticides. After using this book for one season, I can't recommend it enough. It is easy to use and full of information that has kept our gardens healthy and beautiful. It has answered all of my questions and kept me excited about trying new things in the next season. Well written, well illustrated, and a great index.

5.0 out of 5 stars top notch 29 April 2008
By A. Richter - Published on Amazon.com
This is the best general-knowledge gardening book in my collection, and definitely the best organic book I've found. The thing I like the most about this volume is that it's *practical.* The author doesn't act like weeds will magically leave you alone or that gardening is a carefree and perfect existance. He offers real world advice that deals with the real, mundane problems of the chemical-free gardener, or any gardener for that matter.

It also contains lots of pictures and is easy to browse for whatever information you're after.

5.0 out of 5 stars Organic Gardening 4 Aug 2008
By Jane Luttrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beautiful illustrations and all the companion planting and natural pest control information I was wanting.

I'm introducing some friends to raised bed, square foot and organic gardening, and it has served me well as a guide in illustrating the ease with which one can garden on an Earth-friendly basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly useful information 13 Jan 2009
By J. A. Nickerson - Published on Amazon.com
What I really liked about this book was Geoff Hamilton's ability to plunge right into useful info without a lot of preaching to the choir. While someone with a lot of arable land would get the full benefit of this book, apartment and small home dwellers can make the most of it as well. "The Gardening Year" is a great guide to how to schedule your gardening throughout the year according you your US location. I really liked the fact that instructions for DIY tools, containers and fertilizers were abundant. I would definitely encourage anyone thinking of starting an organic garden to start with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Gardening Resource! 12 Sep 2009
By John G. Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Geoff Hamilton's Organic Gardening is an excellent resource for the "weekend gardener" and even more valuable for the expert gardener. I actually grew artichokes this year using Hamilton's advice(I live in the northeast). I am in awe of the myraid of information contained in this book. Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!
