Clare Jackson con Grow More and Water Less: secrets of a waterwise garden (GreenFootprint Organic Gardening Book 3) (English Edition)
Imagine a beautiful, productive garden that doesn’t need hours of watering. In most regions this is achievable, and we will show you how.
In this eBook we share our successful, proven methods for productive organic gardening while saving valuable time and water. We have developed these techniques ourselves in our own food gardens, and we have successfully taught them to many gardeners. During Waikato droughts in recent years our clients continued to garden productively, some bringing in record harvests of kumara (sweet potatoes), pumpkins and tomatoes.
There are other benefits to being waterwise: you’ll have fewer weeds, stronger plants and a more vibrant garden ecology.
Here’s just some of what you’ll learn in this book: How to design a waterwise garden. How to retrofit an existing garden to be waterwise. You’ll find out which is most water-efficient – raised beds or in-ground beds. We’ll show you our best watering techniques, and explain why too much watering can be bad for your garden. And you’ll discover why mulch is so important for a waterwise garden. And much more as well.
So sit down and pour yourself a drink, rather than wasting time and water on your garden!
