Organic gardening is much more than simply throwing a bit of mulch onto your garden beds. A true organic gardener adopts a holistic approach, starting with the most precious organic element of all: the soil.
Tim Marshall′s passion and love of gardening is present on every page of this book. He not only guides you through the principles of organic gardening, he explains the reasons behind these principles and why they work. Once you have these principles of organic gardening under your belt, then the real fun begins. Successful organic gardening, Tim fervently argues, is not just a matter of blindly following a set of rules, it is about experimenting, being creative and making discoveries about how plants best thrive and flourish in your unique garden.The New Organic Gardener shows you how to grow a large range of not just vegetables and herbs but also flowers, trees, including fruit trees, shrubs and even a traditional lawn.
Beautifully designed and illustrated, and drawing on Tim′s vast experience in organic gardening, this book is a truly comprehensive reference that features all the latest, most-up-to date thinking balanced with tried and true methods. The New Organic Gardener is the set to become the gardening bible for every Australian gardener.
