Description

The silence of celebrities on climate chaos... growing your own biofuels to benefit bees... how to run your garden on renewable, modern sunlight... why nature-friendly organic gardening is bad news for big business... how slug pellets are polluting your cup of tea... In this incisive, witty and thought-provoking collection of essays exploring gardening's place in nature, John Walker challenges gardening's status quo at a time of unprecedented environmental upheaval, while urging us to garden in ways that are truly green. This third book of John's earth-friendly garden writing was originally published in Organic Gardening/Organic Garden & Home, and then in Kitchen Garden magazine, as his long-running and popular series 'Digging Deep'. John Walker has been growing plants since he could walk, holds the Kew Diploma in Horticulture, and is an award-winning gardening and environment author, writer, blogger and micropublisher. Despite occasional squirrel-fuelled frustration, he is enjoying eking a new earth- and climate-friendly garden from a once bracken-riddled hillside at his home in Snowdonia, North Wales.show more
