Book Review: How to Master Organic Gardening
This e-book, How to Master Organic Gardening, written by Katie Elzer-Peters and Chris Molnar, is an excellent read. I will have to admit this is my first e-book endeavor, and lucky for me, it was this one. When someone hears the term “organic gardening,” visions of complex processes may come to mind with efforts that pale in comparison to “modern gardening.” How to Master Organic Gardening should convince us that organic gardening makes things easier and healthier. The e-book encompasses all types of gardening including edibles, ornamentals and lawn care. The e-book not only explains general gardening techniques but ties it back to organic methods that will maintain a natural balance benefiting your overall landscape.
With only 102 pages, simplicity is a main theme throughout the e-book. The author took on a variety of complex gardening issues, such as pests, disease control, plant life-cycles and how to build an inter-connected habitat that compliments the organic garden. These sound like complicated topics don’t they? Not in this publication. The author does a fantastic job of narrowing down the broad topics to the very basics. For each problem or process there is an organic solution that is not intimidating nor complex.
Let’s face it, “synthetic gardening” is mainly used as a short cut for desired results. Sure we can increase our yield “faster” or turn our lawns greener but the long-term payoff is dead soil, poisonous residues and a lifeless landscape. Of course over the years we’ve learned that a natural balance has to be maintained. This e-book tells us that it all starts with the soil, and by using organic methods, we can return back to a balance and achieve stellar results.
