Organic Control of Common Weeds
A safe environment guideISBN: 9780947214517PB, 156pp, $17.95
We hate weeds. ‘Weed’ is the ultimate insult. But weeds can also be seen as soil repairers, an essential part of any farm or garden management.
Jackie shows that weeds can be controlled using home-grown, natural herbicides in addition to mulching, solarisation, or applications of urine, steam or boiling water – and many other cheap, safe and environmentally gentle techniques.
There are separate chapters on Natural Weed Control, Weed Management, Fighting Weeds and Using Weeds, as well as alphabetically arranged descriptions of nearly 100 common weeds – from Aaron’s Rod to Wood Sorrel – with line drawings and notes on identification and control.
