Grow Or Die:The Good Guide To Survival Gardening Book Review

This book takes a different look at gardening. Instead of just telling you what to grow or how to grow it David talks about how to grow a garden if you actually needed to survive on it. He states that we should know how to feed ourselves should there be an economic downturn and growing a garden is the best way to do just that. Of course, we wouldn’t be able to just pop down to the local nursery to grab our seeds, seedlings and fertilisers so we need to start our survival garden now and we need to build up our knowledge if we ever hope to survive a crisis, after all knowledge is power.

  1. Nice website, I try to grow my own Vegetable garden but since I leave in Alaska, nothing seems to grow in a frozen weather even indoors. But am still trying.

    • That’s sad that you can’t grow anything where you live but i love your never give up attitude. I have heard that Kale will grow even in the coldest climates-that might be something to try growing. Have you tried growing in a greenhouse?

  2. I love this book review! You’ve made everything really clear and it’s obvious that you’ve spent a good amount of time considering all the details, making it a lot easier for me to decide whether I should buy it. The book looks awesome! I’ve been wondering what to do with my back garden- it feels like I’m constantly battling weeds- so this book looks like a great buy for me.

  3. Love your blog, will definitely invest in water meter, and I like the sound of the book, with the bee hotel, would wasps take it over , I have a couple of their nests around the place

    • Hi Leonie thank you i’m very glad you love my blog. Great question about the wasps. They will be attracted to your hotel too but Cavity-nesting wasps are wonderful – they play essential roles as predators of abundant invertebrates including some pests. If you really don’t want them in your hotel then regular maintenance will keep their numbers down. Happy gardening 🙂
