We’ve all admired our neighbor’s gorgeous gardens filled with flowering perennials and longed to recreate their beauty in our own back yard. But if we’re being honest, when it comes to gardening, most of us have no idea where to begin. Additionally, in these economic times, who can afford to hire an expert to come in and do the job for us? That said, regular folks all across North America and Europe are returning to the soil, shovels in hand. With the help of this book, there is absolutely no need to fly blind into the world of green thumbs, perennials, and herbs.

Indeed, this book is the hand-holding garden guide that will walk even the most timid novice right through the gardening process from beginning to end.
In addition to straightforward, practical advice in everyday language, you will love the stories and anecdotes Olver shares from her fifteen years of backyard, organic gardening adventures. Easy and entertaining, you‘ll probably read this book in one sitting, but you’ll reference it for years to come. The beauty of Garden Guide is that Olver divides her advice into two sections: Beginning Gardeners and Advanced Gardeners. No matter what your skill level, there are simple explanations, tips, and tricks that will walk you through every aspect of the garden process. Garden Guide features details such as:
• Everything you need to know about location, from sunlight to drainage to selecting just the right spot

Organic gardeners focus their energy into increasing the natural health of their soil, choosing appropriate plant varieties, and working with nature to produce a healthy and productive garden.
The organic approach to growing recognises that all living things depend on one another, from pests and soil to flowers and wildlife, all are inter-related - even us. We are all responsible for how we treat the soil and the environment, to safeguard it for future generations.
By using organic methods for your kitchen garden, allotment, or community garden, you can 'grow your own' free from pesticides in healthy soil maintained with compost from recycled materials.
About Garden Organic
Garden Organic is the UK national charity dedicated to researching and promoting sustainable growing, and has been at the forefront of organic horticulture for over 50 years.

Why organic gardening matters
Gardening and growing offers great benefits for us all - benefits for the environment, for people’s health and wellbeing, for food security and for building stronger communities. Our outdoor growing space, be it the private garden, community garden, allotment, school garden, or just a small space nearby, is a place where we relax and recharge both spiritually and physically. It is also a place where we can learn and reconnect with nature and the food we eat and where we can take practical action to adopt sustainable lifestyles.
Using the organic approach to gardening and growing, which Garden Organic has been promoting for over 50 years, will ensure that these benefits can be achieved and enjoyed to their full potential.

Before you start with gardening, you need to make sure that you are going to have the time in taking care of your plants. Growing your plants requires tending loving care, and there are lots of things involved in it. Thus, check if you would be able to come up with an effective daily schedule first, before you start planting the seeds.
This ambiguity may bring confusion for an amateur gardener who would like to foster their own garden, a private plot, or a backyard, without engaging any professional landscape designers or gardeners.
Now, as you use the Plants by Names app, and if you know any name of a plant you want, you could find out other names of this plant, to know what exactly to look for in nurseries, garden stores, or among your friends who are just the same amateurs like yourself.
As a nice complement, there is a map for you to find nurseries where you could possibly get the plant you need.
You know a common/vernacular name, while you need to find out the plant’s scientific/Latin name.
E.g.: A plant was known to you as “Cigar tree”, and using the Plants by Names app you find out that its scientific name is Catalpa bignonioides.
You know a scientific/Latin name, while you need to find out a common name of the plant you are looking for.
E.g.: A plant was known to you as Ajuga reptans. You checked with the Plants by Names app to find out that it may commonly be referred to as “Bugle” and various derivatives from this word (Blue Bugle, Bugleherb, Bugleweed, and so forth).
Sometimes a plant may be known by more than one scientific/Latin name, and you would like to know all of them.
E.g.: You were recommended to plant a linden known by its Latin name Tilia grandifolia. Checking with the Plants by Names app will let you know that some nurseries may also feature this tree as Tilia platyphyllos.
A plant may have several common names. You may be aware of a certain common name, while you might need to find out any other common names of the same plant for future references.
E.g.: You were recommended to plant some “Wig Tree”. You check with the Plants by Names app to find out that it may also be commonly referred to as “Venetian Sumac”, or “Eurasian Smoketree”, or just as “Smoke Tree” or “Smoke Bush” (while it’s scientific name is “Cotinus coggygria”, or “Rhus cotinus”).
Good luck with your gardening and thank you for choosing the Plants by Names application!

Every garden operation was made to seem a wonderful and difficult undertaking. Now, all that has changed. In fact the pendulum has swung, as it usually does, to the other extreme. Often, if you are a beginner, you have been flatteringly told in print that you could from the beginning do just as well as the experienced gardener

It currently features information on how 55 of the Beatles most popular songs came to be written, and more will be added.
It is ordered out in 'British' Album order (from Please Please Me to Let It Be), making it easy to see how the Beatles evolved throughout their career. Being first inspired by simple Rock 'n' Roll greats such as Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry; and girl groups such as the Shirelles on their earlier albums. Through to evolving their own style and techniques on songs such as I feel fine and Rain, and then becoming largely independent song writers in their later years, such as George Harrison's Something, Ringo Starr's Octopus's Garden, John Lennon's Across the Universe, and Paul McCartney's Yesterday.
It is interesting to see the inspiration of many of The Beatles songs, such as a packet of cereals on Good Morning, a teenage runaway on She's leaving home, and a painting by Julian Lennon on Lucy in the sky with Diamonds.
The App is ideal for fans who want to know more about how the fantastic four came to write their music and who was the leader for individual The Beatles songs. It is based on my work at beatleslyrics.eu, and I hope that you have as much fun learning about the meanings of The Beatles songs as I did writing about then.
One of the most difficult things about dealing with thinning bones is keeping on top of all of the daily lifestyle changes required to treat the condition.
OsteoTrack calculates a bone health management plan -- based on your personal circumstances -- and provides an easy to read overview of the steps required to deal with your condition.
Osteoporosis Treatment Track
In addition to any medication that you may or may not require, if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia it is important to make lifestyle changes that help to strengthen your bones.
OsteoTrack provides you with the key information required to do this. You can quickly see the correct amount of nutrients that you should incorporate into your daily diet, and the weight bearing exercises that you should carry out to help strengthen bones.
Osteoporosis Prevention Track.
It is estimated that 50% of women, and 20% of men over the age of fifty will suffer a fracture over the remainder of their lifetime due to weak bones!
Although many of the osteoporosis risk factors, such as age and race, are unavoidable, many of them are in your control. By educating yourself about the condition and following the simple recommendations provided by OsteoTrack you will be able to lower the risk of having weak bones substantially.
In addition to giving an easy to follow summary of the nutrients and exercises required to help strengthen bones, OsteoTrack also provides in-depth information on the Osteoporosis condition, on bone strengthening nutrients, weight bearing exercises, and on the benefits and side effects of osteoporosis medicines.
Core topic areas include:
What is osteoporosis? Bone Testing. Risk Factors. Diet.
Bone-building nutrients: including information on natural foods rich in minerals and vitamins such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, and the vitamins D and K.
Recommended weight bearing exercises, such as walking and Tai Chi.
Guides on the effectiveness, benefits and drawbacks of medications such as bisphosphonates and Forteo.
OsteoTrack is ideal for people who want to do all they can to prevent osteoporosis and osteopenia, and for those who have been diagnosed with one of the conditions and want to understand all that they can about it.
A lot of work has gone into making OsteoTrack an invaluable tool in your fight against thinning bones, but be aware that everyone is an individual and their bones behave differently. It is important to realize that OsteoTrack is not a replacement for your medical practitioner, but should be used as an educational tool to help you arrive at decisions beneficial to your bone health.
The information contained within the App is sourced from publicly available material and is provided as an education service and does not construct medical advice.
It is important to consult with your medical practitioner before carrying out any exercise or nutritional program, this is especially the case if you have osteoporosis or another medical condition and/or are on any form of medication.
Although I have ensured that I have researched all topics fully before writing about them, it is possible for inaccuracies to creep in, especially as different countries have different guidelines for the RDA of nutrients, and for the medical procedures given for the treatment of osteoporosis.
It should be noted that by using this App that you agree that the information is made available with the understanding that the author and publisher are not providing medical, physiological, or nutritional counseling services.
The information on the App is aimed at people with thinning bones and does not cover all of the uses, side-effects, and interactions of medications and nutrition programs.
