5.0 out of 5 stars The best, 28 April 2011
If you just buy one organic gardening book, this is the one. Comprehensive, clear, easy to read - knocks spots off most of the competition. I have around 50 gardening books and this is the best and the one I use the most.

Check out 'Can I change your mind' as well before you make a decision.
