This Gardening Life contains the accurate, concise and useful information you need to grow vegetables organically, and above all successfully. But this is a Sturm's eye view of not just gardening, but living the Good Life.

Jonathan is a Stoic with wide-ranging interests and a mind that sees connections specialists tend to miss. For example, growing plants affects the environment in ways we don't usually pay attention to. So Jonathan includes climatic effects of fertiliser use.

Like his previous and very successful book, Complete Organic Gardening (1992), This Gardening Life includes useful illustrations and a host of tabular data usually only found by consulting multiple sources.

Warning: This book contains graphic and explicit descriptions of traditional horticultural practises, including seed-sowing, harvesting, cultivation of the soil and weed control.
