This is the first book to explain that organic gardening is not simply a matter of gardening without poisonous chemicals. For a flourishing organic garden what you grow is as important as how you grow it. Fully illustrated with new photography, this comprehensive and practical book promotes vegetables that were developed before the use of pesticides and fertilizers, and shows how you can bring together practical and ornamental elements in the garden.
The book contains sections on the benefits of organic gardening, soil and compost, planning and working the organic garden, rounded off with an illustrated directory of vegetables, fruits and herbs. This is a book for beginners and experienced gardeners alike and set to become a standard reference manual for the 21st-century garden.
John Fedor is a native New Englander who trained as a biochemist and now gardens in the north-east of the USA. He relies on modern organic gardening practice and also seeks out tried and proven, but often forgotten, historical gardening techniques.
