Old-fashioned Organic Gardening
Natural Wisdom From the Past for the Gardener of TodayBook - 2002
Gardeners through the centuries have built up a marvellous common fund of gardening knowledge - how best to nourish the soil, ingenious ways of irrigation, propagation and grafting, and the most effective control of pests and diseases. One of the great delights of these traditional skills is that they are perfectly natural and organic - unspoilt by the chemicals and high technology methods so prevalent today. This work explores the rich garden heritage with a combination of practical guidance and tried-and-tested gardening history. It covers natural methods of propagation, fertilization and cultivation, and the organic prevention of weeds and diseases, including period garden design and layout.
