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, without a need for pesticides and herbicides, where plants are companions for each other and for the other species of the earth.
Completely revised and updated, this edition contains more than double the extent of the 1st edition, in full colour and with some 100 photographs. This book offers separate chapters on companion planting for fruit, vegetables, flowers, lawns and soil fertility.
In its 7th printing, with more than 25,000 copies in print, this inspirational guide is set to be most gardener's companion for life.
Jackie French is well-known for her many gardening and children's books, TV appearances on Burke's Backyard, her radio segments, and columns including those in The Australian Women's Weekly and Earth Garden.
