Expert Advice on Planting, Growing, and Caring for Your Fruits, Vegetables, and Herbs
Organic gardening continues to rise in popularity as people seek to control of the quality and freshness of their food. Plus, it’s not just about creating delicious healthy food; it’s also about supporting delicate ecosystems and avoiding dangerous chemicals.
Nick Hamilton, owner of Barnsdale Gardens—Britain’s largest collection of individually designed gardens with 39 working gardens on an eight-acre site—noticed a desire in others to build their own organic gardens. He wanted to create a stress-free and easy resource guide for those looking to get started in organic gardening. He wrote Organic Gardening Techniques: Expert Advice on Planting, Growing, and Caring for Your Fruits, Vegetables, and Herbs, which is being re-released as a second edition from Companion House Books in June.
“I hope this book will give every gardener the information, confidence, and encouragement required to get out into the garden and grow fruit and vegetables using techniques that are uncomplicated, simple, and effective—and really work,” Hamilton says.
Organic Gardening Techniques is packed with practical information on growing fruits, veggies, herbs, and other plants. It also dives deep into tool selection, propagation, crop rotation, growing on supports, training greenhouse crops, watering, and weed and pest control. As a bonus, the book provides helpful information on how to store and preserve all the delicious produce one will harvest.
Besides this being a useful book for gardeners, it’s also a heartfelt dedication to Hamilton’s late father. Hamilton carries on the legacy of his father, Geoff Hamilton, legendary host of the BBC’s Gardener’s World TV show.
