Jackie French's Guide Companion PlantingISBN: 9780947214654full-colour, sewn PB, 188pp, $18.95
Companion planting works – but only when you know why.
This book is the result of 40 years of studying gardens, orchards and the bush; of Jackie French experimenting and testing what lore works and what doesn’t. The result is a plan for gardens that –
- are unconventional and wild, untidy even, but always beautiful,
- have no need for pesticides and herbicides, and
- abound with plants that are companions for each other, and for other life on earth.
Jackie shows how to apply companion planting principles to your vegetables, fruits, flowers and weeds, so they work to make your garden greener, more productive, full of birds, and free of pests.
