Extreme Gardening is the quintessential gardening guide to organic gardening against all odds. Written by the well-known gardening guru, the “Garden Guy,” David Owens shows the experienced and novice gardener how to grow organic foods in hostile climates (all desert climates) and land. Simple to understand with user-friendly spine, the book covers all topics from watering, design, tools, schedules, fertilizing, companion planting, and soils.
The book is easily divided into three main sections-vegetables, fruits and nuts, and controlling extreme pests organically. Each section is full of useful tips such as: each plants nickname; when they are available; how they should be supported; when to plant them; how to properly shade or unshade it; and how to fertilize it, etc. The controlling extreme pests section is broken down into sections by bug name and how to use organic, insect, and sensory-distracting controls.
The author, David Owens is a familiar face on local Phoenix television and radio as one of the foremost experts on organic gardening.
