Backyard self-sufficiency by Jackie French provides readers with detailed information on self-sufficient gardening.
Jackie French’s classic tome on backyard self-sufficiency, this book will help you regardless of whether you have 5 acres or a window box. There are ideas in this book for everyone. Self-sufficient gardens are beautiful: a ramble of productivity and a profusion of smells and colours.
We’ve forgotten how beautiful edible plants can be: fat red apples and tendrils of grapes; beautiful red-flowering perennial beans and soft feathery fennel; the wide, bright blooms of passion fruit and the scent of orange blossom on a summer night. It’s like a Garden of Eden in your own back yard.
This is a completly revised 2nd edition of Backyard self-sufficiency by Jackie French.
