All gardeners should have this book.

I bought this book about 25 years ago and referred to it every year as I gardened. It is laid out very well with excellent illustrations and detailed growing information on most if not all of the common garden vegetables and fruits. Plus pest and disease control, organic fertilizers and more. A few years ago my youngest daughter borrowed it so she could start her own garden, she loves it so much I let her keep it. But I miss having it so I bought another copy for myself.

Every Gradeners bible

This book is GREAT for any type of gardner, from begginner to "farmer" We use it every year and it has really helped our garden just grow bigger and bigger each time.

Rodale's Garden Answers

I love this book, it has become my gardening bible! If I have a question, it has the answer. It has made gardening organically much easier. Last year was my first year to try to garden organically, and it didn't work out too well. But this year I actually know what I'm doing! I would definatly recommend it!

Fantastic book

I really loved this book because it focused on organic methods first. Also, it goes though plant by plant and lists growth conditions, problems and many options for cures. It also goes through soil and garden development.

The Hint book for Organic Gardening

Spend less time reading and more time gardening with this quick-reference guide. The book is broken into five sections: Getting Started, Growing Vegetables, Growing Fruits, Growing Herbs, and Controlling Pest and Diseases. Each section is loaded with tips. In the Getting started section, you will learn about preparing a site, buying the right plants, and how to making Compost Tea. The Vegetable section, not only gives you a detailed write-up on over 30 different vegetables, but tells how to get 100 pounds of tomatoes from one plant. For the do-it-yourself group, there are instructions on how to build a homemade tomato cage.The book devotes 100 pages to growing fruits. Learn how to make an aphid trap out of a milk jug or how to propagate berry plants and fruit trees. There are detailed care and maintenance write-ups on 12 of the most common fruits & berries. The Herb section talks about controlling invasive herbs, companion planting, and how to perform a technique called layering. The Controlling Pest and Diseases section points out beneficial insects and plants. The book also explains organic tricks for solving insect, plant deficiency, and disease problems. I love the way the book uses home products to solve common gardening problems in an easy to read format. This is my favorite gardening book.
