Gardening how-to in a nutshell.

  • Mar 26, 2009

This very affordable, essential reference for beginners covers all the basics of gardening in a broad range of topics, without ever turning too technical for the reader. The well-organized, thoroughly indexed and concise information is presented in handy tips, easy-to-remember answers to frequently asked questions, and step-by-step expert advice with detailed explanations that include topics like:
*Knowing your garden
*Choosing your plants
*Basic tools and equipment
*Planting, watering and feeding
*Wedding, pruning and protecting your plants
*Propagating plants and growing them in containers
*Taking care of your lawn
The key information and direct-to-the-point explanations contained in this handbook are accompanied with more than 250 full-color photos and illustrations, which perfectly depict the points being made and make this volume visually enjoyable. And with a binding perfectly suited for constant browsing and repeated check-ups, you are sure to come back to it again and again.
The one thing missing from this volume is a glossary for common terms, but overall, the nuggets of helpful information presented here are a great value for their price. This is a must-buy for beginners and would-be gardeners who want a simple and easy to follow guide with instructions that can be instantly absorbed.
