by Miles Trench
'Holistic Gardening' is based on a unique compilation of both age-old and modern principles and techniques used collectively to maximise the quality, quantity and nutrition of home-grown produce. Using five principles: Organics, Feng Shui, No-dig Beds, Lunar Planting and Companion Planting, the book offers novice and experienced gardeners alike, a step by step journey into the art and pleasure of successful gardening.
The book is accessible on two levels: firstly, as a straight-out guide to improving the quality and quantity of fresh home-grown produce, and secondly, as a collection of impressions gathered by a passionate gardener after thirty years watching plants grow. Either way, it is a useful and fascinating exposition, and a worthwhile addition to any gardener's library.
'Holistic Gardening' is a compact and informative reader that may well become the handbook for a new generation of organic gardeners seeking to produce high quality, nutritious fruits, vegetables and herbs in their garden at home.
