The Big Book Newsletter





Despite the Texas title, this book, like all my books, is valid for gardeners coast to coast and border to border if two adjustments are made - timing and specific varieties of plants which you need to talk to local experts about anyway. All the big stuff - how to prepare beds, how to plant properly, how to control insect pests and diseases, how to prune, how to do herb gardens, how to use beneficial insects, how to do vegetable gardening, how to mulch, how to make and use compost and how to apply the basic organic program is the same from Maine to Washington to Arizona to Florida to Kansas. Texas Gardening - the Natural Way covers landscape plants, food crops, herbs, weeds, soils, insects, diseases, planting, pruning and harvesting.

And the special deal on my books to raise money for the Texas Organic Research Center (TORC) is still available.
