If you want healthy plants, you need healthy soil, which means weaning (or keeping) your lawn and garden away from harmful chemicals. All the information you need -- including how to properly aerate, fertilize and cut your lawn, use compost, and give your plants the right amount of attention -- is between these covers. How To Get Your Lawn & Garden Off Drugs, Canada's first organic lawn-care book, is for people who want to tread lightly on the earth. Book jacket.
