I’ve been keeping a full, vibrant, productive garden in my head for about two years.

Some good insights and suggestions on how to garden with out going 'whole-hog'. However, as the book was first published in Brittan, by a british author, it kind of makes me wonder how well some of this advice would apply in my own local non-british environment. This would be a good starting place for anyone interested in gardening, though may not have the best local advice.
