Here is the only single-volume reference that supplies all the information necessary to plant a successful organic food garden. Before it was a book, The Fact-Hungry Organic Gardener was organic gardener Tanya L.K. Denckla's private database, the distillation of years of hands-on, real-life, dirt-under-the-fingernails experience in growing her own vegetables, herbs, fruits, and nuts. Interest in organic gardening is increasing and this book is the one book that answers all the questions that sprout up among novice, intermediate, and even experienced gardeners.
Plants are arranged in an A-to-Z format that makes it easy to pinpoint the information you need. Each entry provides specific information on planting, watering and fertilizing, when to harvest, how to store the produce--even which plants profit by getting a headstart in a greenhouse.
Fully half the book is dedicated to organic remedies that can prevent or combat plant diseases and garden pests.
