A farmer’s garden is varied and beautiful: flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables all grow together in orderly confusion, a pleasure for the eyes and the palate. The plants actually support and encourage each other in their growth, warding off pests and even providing shelter for beneficial creatures. That is why a farmer’s garden is always tended naturally, without chemicals or pesticides.
But what belongs in a farmer’s garden, and how do you care for it? In chapters including »Vegetables and Herbs« or »Roses and Shrubs« you will learn all about the plants and their ideal locations. The chapter on design elements shows you which bed borders work best and how to organize the plants. Crop rotation and mixed cultivation are addressed as well as »gardener’s gold« – compost. Of course you are free to do one thing above all: revel in the gorgeous pictures, the very »Dream of a Farmer’s Garden«!
