After decades of emphasis on pest control, often achieved through chemical means, gardeners around the world are beginning to come around to a new or, really, old way of thinking: a garden whose very diversity of plant and animal life makes it healthy, beautiful and productive. Val Bourne - award-winning garden writer, lecturer and organic gardener - introduces both new and experienced gardeners to the diversity of birds, animals, insects and even slugs that bring a natural balance and help its plants and flowers shrug off problems before they become entrenched.
