The Truth About Organic Gardening: Benefits, Drawbacks, and the Bottom Line

By Jeff Gillman

Chicago Tribune : "To be the best gardener, tend your soil, plant a diverse garden, tolerate some imperfection, and make informed
case-by-case choices to deal with problems. [The Truth About Organic Gardening] can help."
—The Chicago Tribune

The Washington Post : "How do you separate the hype from the facts? Spending 13 bucks on [The Truth About Organic Gardening]Ķmay go a long way.Äù
—Washington Post

Seattle Post-Intelligencer : "Sure to cause controversy and heated discussion...What The Truth About Organic Gardening does is introduce more than 100 products and planting techniques and cite the latest university tests and factual results so that gardeners can make responsible choices and not continue to link the words 'organic,' 'safe' and 'effective' so firmly in their minds."
—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"This fascinating book showed me what and how remedies work (or don't), and why. I was interested to learn about potentially hazardous 'quick fixes' and, as always, to have nonsensical myths busted. If I do keep any of my harmless homemade concoctions around, I know now that I'll probably be doing it for their placebo effect—on me."
—Ken Druse

"I don't know why it's taken so long for someone to write an objective analysis of horticultural products and techniques, but I'm glad Gillman came along and did it. The Truth About Organic Gardening belongs on every gardener's bookshelf and in every garden center."
—Amy Stewart, author of Flower Confidential
