Comprehensive guide to organically growing ornamental plants, fruit trees, vegetables and cereal crops

Organic Gardening, now in its seventh edition, is the accepted major work on the subject of growing and cultivating plants in Australia and New Zealand using natural methods. Substantially revised and expanded since its first edition, this book is an impressively comprehensive guide to organically growing ornamental plants, fruit trees, vegetables and cereal crops. All that is essential in organic gardening is to be found in this book, includ-ing: * The garden as an ecosystem * Preparation and maintenance * Alternatives to pesticides * Cultivation * Community gardens * Soil and its essential nutrients * Fertilisers * Composting * Out-of-season growing * Several appendices, including * Sowing guides. With clear and instructive text and well supported with line drawings and full-colour pho-tographs, Organic Gardening is a valuable reference book for home and commercial gar-deners and all students of horticulture.
