Organic Gardening Books - The 50 Absolute Best Gardening Books

These organic gardening books are those that have had the most profound effect on me, and I have read a lot of gardening books.

Most of them just repeat what the last one said, much of which is not great advice in my opinion (and yet somehow they become the popular ones - funny how that is).

But I'm not here to worry about that - the goal today is to give you my list of the best gardening books on my shelves.

These organic gardening books are some of the best gardening books out there. Feel free to post down at the bottom if there are other books you would include on this list.

I've now spent about 15 hours putting this together, finding pictures, getting the book summaries, writing my thoughts and so on, so I hope you really enjoy it.

Hello Stuart,

first of all I am really impressed of what you are doing. I think at the moment too little people really appreciate what possibilities they have in Fiji to grow their own food.
At the moment I am trying to start a small garden with my girlfriend. We live in Suva and trying to plant tomatoes, lettuce, dhania, basil, beans and of course moringa/Saijan.

What kind of soil are you using? Do you mix it to start growing your seeds with sand and compost?

The soil over here is really heavy. Clay?! And we thought we could mix it 1/2 compost, 1/4 sand 1/4 soil for the seeds. And then just mix the normal soil with sand to make it lighter to grow the plants later.

Do you know if there is any store in Fiji selling proper gardening soil to help our seeds sprout. Or any information where we could get more different seeds than just the market and ROC market?

Thank you very much. I am looking forward to hear from you.
