Book review: Organic Gardening For The 21st Century

Organic Gardening For The 21st Century,
by John Fedor;
Reader's Digest;
hardcover;
288 pages;
$49.95

Truly a gardening book for the 21st century, Fedor's book promotes heritage varieties, edible landscapes and the health-giving properties of vegetables and fruits, reflecting some of today's leading gardening trends. It also covers compost, mulch, green manures, weed control, pests and diseases, as well as planning, season extension, tools, seed saving, plant breeding, nutrition and preserving produce. Plus, there's a directory of vegetables, fruits and herbs with basic information on nutritional value, care, harvesting and suggested varieties.

Unfortunately, in trying to cover so much, Fedor glosses over some subjects and leaves out important details. Despite this, the book is an excellent and beautiful resource for beginner organic gardeners.
