Organic Vegetable GardeningORGANIC gardening advice continues to be sought out by gardeners keen to work their plots without chemicals. This Australian book is a complete guide to growing a large range of vegetables using organic principles, from sowing seeds to potential problems before harvest season.

Organic Vegetable Gardening is clear, concise and useful, especially if you want to try your hand at mixing your own organic remedies for the common bug problems that plague the vege patch.

It also includes tips on vege garden design, with four and six bed rotation plans.

Like most organic gardening books, this is not one for the coffee table - there are very few photos - but the authoritative text more than makes up for it.
