Synopses & Reviews
Over 400 entries of the most practical, up-to-date gardening information ever, collected from garden experts and writers nationwide!
"Gardens are places to renew yourself in mind and body, to reawaken to the truth and beauty of the natural world, and to feel the life force inside and around you. And the organic way to garden is safer, cheaper, and more satisfying. Organic gardeners have shown that it's possible to have pleasant and productive gardens in every part of this country without using toxic chemicals. They make their home grounds an island of purity."--Robert Rodale
Book News Annotation:
Attitudes have changed in the 32 years since the first edition, and the idea of eschewing chemical pesticides and fertilizers in favor of compost piles, crop rotation, and other such means of growing healthy plants has broader acceptance. The Encyclopedia sets forth the basics, with entries on a large number of plants and their cultivation, soil preparation methods, pests, garden plans, etc.
