OMPANION PLANTING IN NEW ZEALAND
The ultimate home gardener's guide to work with nature to grow healthy plants.
- Brenda Little
Home-grown food is growing in popularity, and this is your ultimate how-to guide. Companion Planting in New Zealand helps you work with nature to get the best from your garden, producing cabbages that 'squeak with health' and beans that 'snap like a gunshot'.
Every tip in this pocket-sized book has worked for somebody - why it worked may be a mystery, but the result of a healthy crop is the greatest reward for a gardener and this book shows how it can be achieved.Entertaining and often anecdotal, Brenda Little's notes are inspired by a wealth of experience and common sense. Companion Planting in New Zealand offers the reader a gardening system relying completely on observation of the natural ecosystem and a respect for the plants and animals living there, e.g. how parsley grows well with chives but away from mint and where a light spray of seaweed solution is useful in combating certain pests.
