Organic Vegetable Growing,
This review is from: Organic Vegetable Growing: A practical, authoritative guide to producing nutritious and flavourful vegetables from your garden or allotment (Paperback)
Organic Vegetable Growing: A Practical, Authoritative Guide to Producing Nutritious and Flavourful Vegetables from Your Garden or Allotment
This book is comprehensive, concise and to the point. Every aspect of planning, clearing, digging and fertility is given careful consideration. There are excellent pointers for dealing with a variety of sites, exercises to counteract the specific strains that sometimes result from gardening, and tips on how to cook vegetables in the most nutritious way possible.
The planting and growing needs of particular vegetables form a good third of this book together with a detailed account of the various pests with which each vegetable has to contend, and how these may be controlled. There is also an invaluable section on the various common weeds.
I thoroughly recommend this book with its clear presentation, making it easy to find what you require to know; and as well as interesting gems of knowledge, it contains some charming and informative illustrations drawn by the author.
