Organized by season, this-large format compilation of Horticulture magazine's bimonthly illustrated how-to column offers 86 projects, each complete in a two-page layout and each step illustrated by Elayne Sears' pen and ink drawings.

Projects range from the common to the unusual: building a raised bed, planting a raspberry patch, raising ferns from spores, storing tropical water lilies. Topics cover landscaping from seeding a lawn to pruning, planting and propagating shrubs and trees. Gardening topics cover everything from composting to raising pole beans, drying herbs, growing roses from cuttings, saving seeds.

There's a little something for everyone here, novice or expert. Directions are clear and precise and never assume prior knowledge while the illustrations are attractive and useful.
