Review

Regional gardening guides don't get any better than this....Six years in the making, and the result of hundreds if not thousands of gardeners associated with the Seattle Tilth organization, it shows on every page the care that went into it...Fortunately, despite the high level of expertise represented herein, the information is conveyed in an accessible, friendly, even sometimes humorous way, understandable by the beginner as well as by the seasoned gardener...If you're a Maritime Northwesterner choosing one gardening guide for your library, this should be the one -- Talking Leaves, Spring/Summer, 1999 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What is Organic Gardening? Well, it isn't rocket science--organic gardening is a lot more complex. Rocket science seeks to accomplish something unnatural by isolating and controlling all relevant factors. Organic gardening seeks a delicate balance between leaving nature alone and manipulating it to produce crops. The following principles, developed throughout this guide, are a starting point for helping you to become a beneficial organism in your garden. Care for the soil...Practice Crop Rotation...Encourage Diversity...Pay Attention...Read On. While your own observations are your best learning tool, you don't have to learn everything all by yourself. Observations about how and when to grow crops best are part of local and regional culture. This guide provides information for beginners to get a jump on learning about growing crops in the Maritime Northwest, and serves as a reference for experienced gardeners. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
As a newcomer to the Northwest, I was delighted and relieved to find the Maritime Northwest Garden Guide. It is a planting calendar for year-round organic gardening and so much more. Growing in this climate is so vastly different from my experiences in the Midwest that sometimes I felt like a complete novice. Month-by-month, the Garden Guide provides a nearly exhaustive list on which seeds are appropriate to sow indoors, sow outdoors, and sow under cloches. Following their suggestions yields year-round produce. It's full of great reminders that January is the time to start planning your crop rotation, February is the time to have your soil tested, March is the month to begin the soil amendments and April is the time to begin hardening off. What? you don't know what "hardening off" means? You really need to buy this book!

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for the northwest gardener (But a must have for the gardener that just moved to the region) because for one it brakes down what should be done each and every month of year to have a great garden. It let you know what flowers, herbs and veggies grow the best, when they should be plant, and how to manage your plants organically. For me it took the mystory out of the organic farming by telling me what to do and why it helps. It shouldn't be the only garden book in your library but it should be one of your first. Have a great year in the garden.

This is a really great garden guide for maritime climates. It includes a list of what vegetables, herbs, and annuals to plant on a monthly basis in an easy to follow format. I've been gardening for years and still refer to it regularly. A very helpful and handy guide!

recommended by a friend as the de facto guide (more of a pamphlet). buy it direct for best pricing (new item price including tax and shipping is half of the lowest price across used offers). [...]
