˜Without question, this is the great informative book organic gardeners everywhere have been waiting for.
“ Peter Cundall
The New Organic Gardener is the most comprehensive organic gardening book available for Australia. It's New, because for the first time in Australia, there is a definitive gardening book where the organic approach inhabits every page, not just the first few chapters.
The New Organic Gardener provides soundly based and comprehensive organic growing principles in part one. The practical chapters in the part two cover most aspects of gardening, and are packed with useful information and handy hints about applying organic methods in the home 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.
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.
The New Organic Gardener sustains the connection between principles and practice in a unique way, and adheres to the fundamental organic philosophy, while also investigating the role of new science and manufacturing in explaining how organic works and providing us with the choice of ˜off the shelf products to make organic gardening easier, safer and more precise.
Tim Marshall's passion for gardening infuses every part 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.
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 set to become the gardening bible for every Australian gardener.
