I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Organic gardening has long been regarded as esoteric and a little “out there.” Today, however, organic gardening has practically become mainstream. In fact, you could even say that is has become the new “conventional” way to grow. Organic gardening has been a popular gardening method for most of the past century, but interest in organic gardening has soared in recent years as gardeners have become more aware of the quality of their food.
Practical Organic Gardening begins with the assumption that most of us want to plant and grow our own gardens and yards without using chemical fertilizers and herbicides. Organic gardening is simply safer for the environment and for families, and this complete guide shows you how to do it. From vegetables to shrubs and groundcovers, there’s information on learning effective ways to eliminate chemicals and still maintain vigorous, healthy plants.
Practical Organic Gardening The No-Nonsense Guide to Growing Naturally was written by Mark Highland, founder of The Organic Mechanic. This book is designed to help those gardeners that are interested in transitioning from conventional to organic gardening. I have tried for the past four years to have an abundant garden, but unfortunately life keeps getting in the way. It’s hard to find time to weed the garden when you are busy taking care of children, helping with homework, cooking dinner and cleaning house. I lack the knowledge of how to have a successful organic garden. My gardens tend to be under fertilized, but when your trying to have an organic garden you don’t want to use harmful chemicals. This book is filled with how-to projects and illustrated with step-by-step photography. Hopefully with the help of Highland’s suggestions I can have a successful garden this year.
