Easy Organic Gardening and Moon Planting
15.3cm x 20.5cm
Organic gardening is a way of leaving your patch of earth in a better condition than you found it by working with nature rather than against it. A practicable and better alternative to chemical-dependent and environmentally unsustainable cultivation practices, organic gardening prevents soil damage, and results in more nutritious food, and fewer contaminated waterways and poison-resistant pests. Easy Organic Gardening and Moon Planting is an indispensable reference to organic cultivation methods, with an additional moon-planting guide, to help gardeners to work with the cycles of nature. It includes an easy-to-follow moon-planting routine for all aspects of gardening, with a listing of the best planting, harvesting, and pruning days from 2009 to 2013.
Full of common sense and wisdom, and written in a friendly, conversational voice, it includes comprehensive information and advice about: how you can revitalise garden soil and keep it healthy; how to use composting and worm-farming techniques to transform garden and kitchen waste into top-quality, organic fertiliser; how to grow your own fruit and vegetables in garden beds or pots; how to raise healthier, pest- and disease-resistant seedlings, shrubs and trees - without using poisons. 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.
