COMPANION PLANTING IN NEW ZEALAND
The ultimate home gardener's guide to work with nature to grow healthy plants.
Brenda Little

Home-grown food is growing in popularity, and this is your ultimate how-to guide. Companion Planting in New Zealand helps you work with nature to get the best from your garden, producing cabbages that 'squeak with health' and beans that 'snap like a gunshot'.

Every tip in this pocket-sized book has worked for somebody - why it worked may be a mystery, but the result of a healthy crop is the greatest reward for a gardener and this book shows how it can be achieved.Entertaining and often anecdotal, Brenda Little's notes are inspired by a wealth of experience and common sense. Companion Planting in New Zealand offers the reader a gardening system relying completely on observation of the natural ecosystem and a respect for the plants and animals living there, e.g. how parsley grows well with chives but away from mint and where a light spray of seaweed solution is useful in combating certain pests.

Fantastic little book

To be honest when I bought this I worried I was wasting my money, as I've bought gardening books before and either found them uninteresting or simply unhelpful (or not relevant to NZ). But this book is great - a little quirky, often funny, easy to read, well organised and focused on what you need to know (ie for companion planting, what plant goes with what) rather than reams of background information. If you are looking for detailed scientific information on why different plants should be planted together or apart, this may not be the book for you; it really focuses on the WHAT in much more depth than the WHY. However, for someone after a practical introduction to companion planting it is excellent. It feels like you're just listening to your mum's witty and wise gardener friend. Highly recommend!

Excellent reference

Excellent reference. Bought for my son for his birthday. With so many people again taking on growing their own he is keen to know what to plant to keep away bugs!
