Blending organic and ecological practice with biodynamics and permaculture, the book gives a detailed account of chemical-free, sustainable gardening. Part three shows how to create a garden in any situation by choosing plants to suit the conditions in the garden, and gives advice on how to alleviate problems. Part four is a working manual.
