The Small Food Garden: Growing Organic Fruit and Vegetables at Home

Author(s): Diana Anthony

Vege & Fruit Growing

You don't need a quarter-acre section to successfully grow fresh produce; nor does it take a lot of money or effort. Based on organic principles, this practical, well-illustrated guide takes you through all the basics: choosing what to plant and where to put it; advice on organic pest and disease control; watering and plant nutrition; using space-saving containers and raised beds; the benefits of companion planting as well as making your own compost - and that's just for starters. A combination of previously published companion volumes, The Small Edible Garden and The Edible Garden Planner, the content for this book has been substantially revised and updated to include numerous new varieties of vegetables, fruit and herbs chosen for their suitability for growing in most climatic conditions around the world.
