DESCRIPTION
Fabulous Food from Every Small Garden shows how to grow food at home in even the smallest of spaces. It explores the reasons for growing your own food, including the many potential benefits such as improved taste, freshness and nutrition. Many types of food are covered, such as vegetables, fruits, herbs, bush tucker plants and edible flowers. This practical book discusses the importance of growing open-pollinated varieties, and provides detailed instructions for successfully growing plants from seeds. Plant care is explained, including organic pest and weed control and efficient watering methods. In addition, readers are shown how to improve soil fertility by making their own fertiliser.
REVIEWS
"Encouraging readers to grow their own food, Australian author Mary Horsfall tells of her experience in starting a garden from scratch at a site that had limited space and few free resources. She found that a significant difference in climate and new pests with which to contend was less of a challenge than gardening on a small site. She provides tips on the most suitable crops for these conditions; gives advice on techniques for achieving high production; tells how to create more fertile soil; and goes through the regime for caring for plants."--Marilyn K. Alaimo, garden writer and volunteer "This continues the high standard of garden books from CSIRO and is serious value for money. There are clear instructions on growing and the book is profusely illustrated."--Cedric Bryant, Sunday Canberra Times
