This delightful little book shows how to attract beneficial wildlife and choose useful plants that will help rule out the need for chemicals in the garden. It takes the four basic ingredients that make a successful garden and selects the “heroes” (and some of their sidekicks) that best represent them:

· The earthworm soil improver
· The honeybee pollinator
· Comfrey, the beneficial plant
· The predatory ladybug

The Little Book of Garden Heroes explains the work these heroes do and gives tips on how to cater to their needs and habits when designing a garden. It encourages readers to kick the chemicals and go organic.
