Here you can read some of the (loveliest!) reviews this book has gotten.
“Swedish gardening author Eva first published her book in her native language in 2018, and it has since proved popular with gardeners across the country, but as she told us: “Sweden is not the only country with a colder climate, so I’ve since translated the book to English, and it’s now readily available all across the world.” Based on permaculture principles it is a highly detailed book which uses her own garden – now a mini smallholding – as an example of how to develop a plot to provide good food in a sustainable and organic way. More than just a book on how to grow food, it is really an entire gardening course which offers tutorials on everything from garden planning to water collection, soils, feeding and much, much more. There is even a section on keeping livestock. Eva encourages you not to rush into anything, but to take your time, stand back and observe your plot, getting to know it and its unique microclimate before deciding what to plant where. And because this is permaculture there are no straight rows of single crops – it’s all about which plants benefit others in terms of providing shade and shelter, making best use of nutrients and deterring pests, so Eva suggests planting plans which place the crops in groups, partnering plants to give best results. A great book for anyone eager to learn more about basic gardening principles and especially those who want to grow their crops using permaculture principles.”
