Around the world, everyone is talking about environmental issues and the concept of “going green.” Natural organic gardening and landscaping are among the most important parts of that movement. Some organic proponents only say to stop using the chemicals. In The Organic Manual, Howard Garrett explains what to do instead. His “what to do” is the organic method. The book opens with the advice to stop the use of toxic chemicals, pesticides, and synthetic fertilizers, but Garrett then goes on, in great detail, about the practical alternatives. This is one of the few books effective for use coast to coast and border to border. The organic method has no geographic boundaries.

The best-kept secret (uncovered in this book) is that the organic program is better in every way. Whether it’s growing beautiful landscaping or delicious, healthy food crops, The Organic Manual explains bed preparation, planting, pest control, and compost making. It also covers natural living advice. The organic method is the most efficient, cost-effective, and fun of any approach. It also produces the best trees, shrubs, flowers, fruits, and vegetables you’ll ever grow.

The organic manual

I bought 2 of these books to give one to a friend who was gardening for the first time. There was not much in the book that would help either of our situations. The cover was misleading showing veggies newly harvested and that's what I thought the book was about. Thought I wasted my money, not what I was wanting in a gardening book. It's not about growing veggies.
