1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mark Twain on 4 Dec 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book. It's quite small, neatly produced and neatly written. There are about a hundred paragraphs of ideas about things that might or might not be good for your garden: beer, beef, old shoes, hair, cats, marigolds, nettles. It's great if you like gardening and would also be good as a gift for a young writer interested in how to convey information concisely. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We recently aquired an allotment and had to clear it of all the weeds, seeded veggies and couch grass etc. This little book was suggested on a website we found as essential reading...and essential it is! It has great tips for companion planting, and some wonderful tips for growing all sorts of plants. A clear concise and fun way of picking up tips from two (NOT) old wives!

Format: Hardcover
If you're into organic gardening, you need this book. Given it's a bit older than most organic gardening books (1976), there's plenty of tips which seem to have been lost over the years. It's not actually striving to be 'organic', just doing things the way they were done before chemicals.
