Have you noticed how much more expensive organic vegetables (and fruits) are in comparison to the sprayed with pesticides and chemical fertilizer ones are? I've seen $2.50 for an organic apple which is utterly ridiculous!

If you are a beginner and don't know much about organic gardening, this book covers the basic "how to" essentials to get you started. Some of what you will learn is how to tell which soil is most conducive for growing vegetation and how to make natural fertilizer to plant your seeds in. There are a lot of components to organic gardening so being familiar with some common basic terminology provided in this book helps out when you go to your local nursery or garden store. You'll know what you're talking about and exactly what to look for. All of that is covered including what specific gardening tools you'll need to use for your vegetable garden. Even the planter or container that's used for growing the seeds in (and proper lighting) plays a role in how well it grows. Especially if you are growing an indoor vegetable garden, this would need to be taken into consideration which is discussed in detail. You'll also learn about miniature organic vegetable gardening that's really fun and easy to grow. It's so nice and convenient to literally pick vegetables and herbs right off your plant without leaving your home.

The biggest mistake gardeners make each season is starting out too big and then quickly realizing their large plot requires too much weeding, watering, and backbreaking labor. Vertical gardening guarantees a better outcome from the day the trowel hits the soil—by shrinking the amount of "floor" space needed and focusing on climbing plants that are less prone to insects, diseases, and animal pests. Notable author and gardener Derek Fell has tried and tested thousands of varieties of vegetables, flowers, and fruits and recommends the best plants for space-saving vertical gardening. His grow-up, grow-down system also shows which ground-level plants make good companions underneath and alongside climbing plants. Best of all, many of Fell's greatest climbers and mutually beneficial plants are available in seed packets in every local garden center. With a mix of DIY and commercially available string supports, trellises, pergolas, raised beds, skyscraper gardens, and topsy-turvy planters, the vertical garden system reduces work, increases yields, makes harvesting easier, and can be practiced in spaces as small as a container or a one-by-four-foot strip. Vertical Gardening features 100 color photos of the author's own vertical methods and showcases beautiful, troublefree perennials, shrubs, vegetables, annuals, and fruit perfect for this new, rewarding way to garden.
