Easy Organic Gardening by Lyn Bagnall
An essential resource for all Australian and New Zealand gardeners who care about their family’s health and the environment.
Organic gardening leaves your patch of earth in a better condition than you found it. Working with nature rather than against it is a practical and better alternative to chemical-dependent and environmentally unsustainable cultivation practices. Organic gardening prevents soil damage, results in more nutritious food, fewer contaminated waterways and poison-resistant pests.
The Easy Organic Gardening by Lyn Bagnall is an indispensable reference to organic cultivation methods. It contains an easy-to-follow moon-planting guide to help gardeners work with the cycles of nature. Written in a friendly, conversational voice this guide is packed with comprehensive information. You find advice about how to protect your garden from climate change, save water, revitalise garden soil, transform garden and kitchen waste into top-quality, organic fertiliser, grow your own fruit and vegetables, raise healthier, pest- and disease-resistant seedlings, shrubs and trees and more…
This wide-ranging book also features an extensive listing of Australian native plants, and a month-by-month diary of what to plant when for all climate zones of Australia and New Zealand. For aspiring and experienced gardeners alike, Easy Organic Gardening and Moon Planting will make your whole garden more vigorous, and a healthier haven for your family, pets, and native fauna.
