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.

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.

Also disappointing See my review of the Organic Fruit app in the same series. This one also suffers from the same poor and seemingly superficial authoring. For example Broad Beans ... When to Plant. Does not say when to plant, other than advising succession sowing, doesn't even mention autumn of spring sowing. This app, and maybe the whole series needs to be withdrawn for review and re-writing.

Not enough detail I found the information quite sparse. For instance one thing I really want to know about various veg is what pests to look out for.
