Working With Weeds
Where there are people, there are weeds. And where there are weeds, people are trying to get rid of them.
By looking more closely at what types of weeds are growing where, we can learn so much about the growing conditions in our gardens, giving us valuable insight into what is happening in our soil. This information can then be translated into what needs to be done to make the garden less conducive to weeds and more suitable for the plants we want to grow.
When we know a bit about our weeds, we can control them organically, more effectively and more permanently, allowing us to create much more satisfying gardens.Some weeds we may even decide not to get rid of as we discover how useful they are as food, medicine, habitat or soil improvers.
Kate Wall teaches us how to do just that in this insightful book. Kate helps us learn to read the weeds, how to use the weeds, and how to garden without weeds.
