Organic Gardening for Dummies, 2nd edition
In the first edition of Organic Gardening for Dummies, by Ann Whitman, you'll find an incredible amount of information on growing organically. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to revise and update the 2nd edition, which has just been published. I included some new information on making the case for organic growing as well as new products and techniques. It's a great reference, if I do say so myself, for new and experienced gardeners alike.
