Amazon Reviews of The HDRA Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening:
“Enthusiastic amateur sworn off pesticides, I set out to grow a simple patch of rocket (rucula) tomatoes, potatoes, coriander and parsley. All the natural way of course… Black lice turned into juicy worms loved the rucula, the parsley survived but the potatoes got the dreaded black death and rotted away, tomatoes are being stifled by weeds.
All the answers are in this book, and many many more. For anyone who hopes to improve their organic garden, no matter the size, I think this book is worth its weight in gold.”
