Overview

Smaller available spaces for gardens, a national movement to forego the use of synthetic chemicals in the environment and a desire to utilize low maintenance and native plants are all addressed in "A Year in a Rock Garden - An Organic Gardening Guide".

According to Organic Gardening.com, Sales of organic products are estimated to have topped $25 billion in 2008.

Specific gardens are featured each month, along with Kushner's own garden, photographs, specific garden chores, directions and organic practices for an entire year.

Throughout the book readers will:
* Understand specific gardening direction as to what must be accomplished each month.
* Have guidelines for gardening organically without the use of synthetic chemical products.
* Be given input on specific plants, their needs, bloom time, flower color and an appendix of close to 300 appropriate plants and their cultural needs.
* Learn which plants are to be avoided.
* Have a comprehensive list of sources for seeds, plants, gardening tools and supplies.
* Be advised of the up-to-date explanation of what the term "organic" actually means in the United States today.
