Not all gardeners are made the same, 

and sometimes need a special approach to gardening.

 We also include other books that fall under the rubric of diversity.

At Bountiful Gardens we get questions about gardens in every conceivable climate. Sometimes the answers are pretty standard, but often special climates need special approaches. 

Our GrowBiointensive method has been proven all over the world in over 100 countries in all sorts of climates, and is the best technique to base your garden on. That said, there are complimentary methods such as biodynamic, which we feel bring additional benefit to the garden.

Many of these are books we've found most useful

over the years, classics that never seem to go out of date,

revisions of old favorites, and some new ones that we just couldn't resist.
