Organic Gardening

Organic gardening by Geoff Hamilton — Gardening using organic principles has really gained in popularity over the past few years. Making the choice to limit the use of chemicals gives the gardener some control over what ends up in their produce. Gardening organically doesn't mean giving up on all fertilizers, though! There are a host of natural soil amendments that can help your plants flourish. This book goes over all this and much more, focusing primarily on vegetables but also covering fruits, herbs, and ornamentals.
