This is the book that every gardener should own. Suggestions, formulas and recipes abound in this very pleasant to read publication.

I had originally purchased this book as a way to battle common garden diseases and pests, but I was pleasantly surprised at the inclusion of information on herbs and cooking, beneficial insects and birds, home remedies, garden designs and soil improvement.

Good gardening wisdom is timeless, so although this book was published in 1998, the information it contains is as valuable today as it was 11 years ago. I would highly recommend this book.
This is such a fun book with loads of information about all sorts of gardening tips. Everything from organic pest control to making herb-scented foot and body warmers. This book will keep you very busy perfecting what you already know, and learning how to use things from your garden to please the creatures around your yard as well as friends and family. There are recipes to make Birdsong granola and also natural soap and herbal tea. Even composting and natural fertilizer. Easy to follow and arranged in sections, with illustrations and a very handy list of resources in the back. Even if you have other gardening books, this one is a must for other projects involving the garden!
This book is great for the do-it-yourself gardener. Filled with good information and ideas, that are, of course, all organic. I had checked it out from our local library, and knew I had to get my own copy.
Full of good tips and non-toxic solutions. Book arrived like new.
The recipes in this book are very useful and inexpensive. They cover many problems home gardeners face. I have already used it for garden problems.
Have used some of these formulas with mixed results!
Very interesting reading to try some alternatives!
Would recommend with reservations.
LOTS of home product solutions for garden issues! Pesticide free! NO chemicals to wash off edibles. Nice lay out. Easy read!
very helpfu land lots of good advice
