A Month-by-Month Guide for Vegetables and Flowers.
Increasingly, NZers have turned more and more to natural, healthy foods - and thereby, too, to organic gardening methods free of avoidable poisons and chemicals.
Scientists have estimated that if our present world-wide exploitation of natural resources continues at its present rate, one million species will have become extinct by the year 2000. Many thousands already have.
Organic gardening is firmly linked to a swelling tide of public apprehension that through greed and folly we have already placed all future life in jeopardy. This book encourages and helps home gardeners who would like to discard inorganic methods and instead cultivate their plots more naturally.
Jonathan Spade accepts that sometimes a chemical poison can have its place in the home garden, Thus this book is not a fanatical diatribe, but rather a friendly and helpful guide for the aspiring home gardener who wants the healthiest environment and food that can be achieved within reason.
Set out as a month-by-month guide to the jobs to be done, and covering both food and flowering plants, the book is filled with hints and tips that will be invaluable to every gardener. It is fully illustrated with photos and line drawings.
