When the inspiration hits to start an organic garden, many novices could benefit from a guidebook that speaks directly to their enthusiasm, their goals and of course, their need for solid information that speaks a newbie's language from the most trusted source for organic gardening methods. In Rodale's 'Basic Organic Gardening', general garden-building skills (from "Do I need to dig?" to "Where do I dig?") and specific techniques (from "How do I plant a seed?" to "How much should I water?") are presented in growing season order, from garden planning and planting to growing and harvesting. Many other, need-to-know topics like soil, compost, seeds, pest control and weeds are explained in simple language to ensure success, even on a small scale on the first try. More than 100 common garden terms are defined and Smart Starts sidebars offer doable projects to build confidence and enthusiasm for expanding a garden, when a gardener is ready. A flower, vegetable and herb finder highlights easy care plants with good track records. Plus, there are no-dig garden methods, simple garden layouts, and tips and hints inspired by the most popular pageviews on Organic Gardening.com. With a "no question is unwelcome" approach, a troubleshooting section lessens frustrations and encourages experimentation. Rodale's 'Basic Organic Gardening' is everything – a beginning gardener (or one who's new to gardening organically) needs to get growing and keep a garden going strong all season.
