Would you like to grow organic fruit and vegetables in your own garden and harvest them to cook for dinner, confident in the knowledge they have not been contaminated with pesticides or modified in any way?

Completely revised and updated, this new edition of David Murray's authoritative and comprehensive book covers everything you need to know to be a successful organic gardener. In simple and straightforward language, David gives practical advice on soil preparation, mulching, water conservation, weed management and how to collect and store seeds to propogate your own plants. Seperate chapters include information on growing herbs, the various types of root and leaf vegetables, fruit and nut trees, and growing in pots and containers.
David Murray challenges the traditional concepts of gardening, such as planting flowers and vegetables in seperate beds, and instead adopts the ecologically sustainable method of companion planting. In following his approach, natural pest and weed management can be achieved without resorting to pesticides.
