    Comments about Organic:

    Love this book. I borrowed it first from the local library and decided that before returning it, I had to get my own copy. As usual, Don Burke's common sense and plain English shine through. This book is great for beginners through to experienced gardeners, outlining how to build your garden, plant, collect seeds, harvest, to name just a few. There are even instructions on how to make your own scarecrow! And also comes with a handy pull out wall chart planting guide. Thanks Don - awesome job!
