Growing Fruit and Vegetables on a Bed System the Organic Way

Author(s): Pauline Pears

Vege & Fruit Growing

If you wish to produce higher yields for less work, then a bed garden is for you. The advantages are numerous: easy weeding, earlier cropping, good for small quantities and poor soils, and better for those with bad backs. This practical book covers all aspects of bed gardening, from planning and constructing the beds, through to crop selection, rotation, and planting. We are all aware of global warming, the greenhouse effect, the extinction of the species of flora and fauna, pollution of land, sea and air. But what, may you ask, have all these global problems to do with organic gardening? A great deal. Every year millions of gardeners pour herbicides, pesticides and chemicals into the land and all this adds to the destruction of our environment. So why not become an organic gardener and make a contribution to protecting our precious world? Do not be put off by some people who say organic gardens are of little or no help. We all have to start somewhere and our garden is as good a place as any. Organic gardening is not only much more fun than reading the label on a packet of chemicals, but there are other benefits too: healthier fruit and vegetables and a garden teeming with a variety of wildlife.
