For Beginning and Experienced Gardeners Alike

If you dream of having a beautiful lawn, fruits and veggies to die for, a flower bed that just won't stop, and a garden environment where all of nature has the chance to thrive without pesticides - this book is your answer.

GROW ORGANIC is an accessible, richly informative, witty and insightful guide to helping gardeners of all skill levels achieve their organic potential. For those millions of gardeners who are now realizing that organic is the only way to grow, this book offers practical information to help get "the real dirt" on up-to-date, easy-to-understand organic practices.

Nine chapters give you the lowdown on composting, companion planting, organic pest control, soil management and much more - with an invaluable Friends of the Organic Gardener source guide appendix. Got questions? In each chapter you'll find a quick and easy reference list of how-to tricks and tips the authors have discovered during their combined gardening experience of nearly 50 years.

"Co-authors Jessica Walliser and Doug Oster are terrific guides along the organic path. Safe, simple solutions are offered instead of toxic chemical fixes... and you'll fall in love with your garden all over again as you learn to garden cooperatively with nature." -Ann Lovejoy, author of Ann Lovejoy's Organic Garden Design School and Gardening from Scratch  

"This is a great book filled with useful information - fun to read, straightforward and convincing. If you were not an organic gardener when you started, you will be by the end." -Holly H. Shimizu, Executive Director, United States Botanic Garden, Washington, D.C.

Synopsis:

In today’s downturned economy, one sector is trending sharply up: backyard vegetable gardening. Americans are staying closer to home – literally tending to their gardens, by the millions. And they’re reaching out for help and advice. Doug Oster, popular radio talk show gardening expert and newspaper garden and food columnist, gets more questions about tomatoes than any other vegetable. #2 is garlic, with basil close behind. It’s time for a book about these favorites of the American kitchen. With color photos throughout, this book is a balance of easy-to-use organic gardening tips, a little horticultural history, serious and funny cautionary gardening tales…and 30 simply delicious recipes (the gastronomic payoff). No matter if a garden is a loft balcony or a backyard in the ‘burbs, Doug leads his readers step by step with his trademark “how I do it” humor and Julia Child honesty…with a bonus prize of all those recipes as a reward for their labors. For beginners and old-timers alike.
