Product Description

Experienced masters give their tips and techniques on garden basics, flowers and vegetables, pest and disease control, attracting birds and butterflies, and equipment

From Publishers Weekly

One should be wary of books that claim to hold all the information the reader needs to know, no matter what the subject. This Big Book , though certainly useful, also helps to reinforce that hunch. Geared to the beginner, it wastes few pages in getting down to business--the first chapter describes planting methods for vegetables, from wide rows to trellises. Subsequent chapters are just as down-to-earth, and are focused on food production. Readers interested in flowers, fruits or landscaping will have to wait until they''re well past the midpoint to get what they want. Brief initial rundowns of the contents of each chapter are useful, as are sidebars farther on: a guide to side-dressing vegetables, a list of long-blooming perennials and an extensive chart on container vegetables. The guide to insects, on the other hand, would have been more useful if photographs, rather than drawings, had been included, even though the information given is extensive. The same could be said for the discussion of garden diseases. In the end, this book tries to cover too much ground, giving some subjects short shrift. While a good introduction, it is not quite comprehensive enough.

From Library Journal

Reading this book is a bit like having a chat over the back fence with a master gardener. Not a comprehensive garden guide, it aims to provide tips and tricks for gardeners of all interests and skill levels. Organized in major sections are magazine-like articles on such topics as tomatoes (to stake or not), green manures, and how to build a cold frame. Material ranges from the very basic (container gardening) to the more esoteric (soil solarization to kill insects and diseases). The volume is rounded off with lists of suppliers and associations. This nonthreatening source of information for the novice gardener will probably provide some nuggets of information for more experienced gardeners as well. For popular gardening collections.

About the Author

Storey Books started out with a mission to serve our customers by publishing practical information that encourages personal independence in harmony with the environment. We started out in our rural Vermont office with a handful of gardening books and an even smaller handful of employees. But our collection soon grew to include books on herbs, cooking, crafts, natural health & beauty, and animals.

A lot has changed since then. We''re now publishing practical, how-to information on subjects such as feng shui and aromatherapy -- unheard of in 1973! But no matter what the topic, our books are still designed to help you live a simpler, more satisfying life.

I have been an avid gardener for over thirty years and this book impressed me by its enormous scope of knowledge of every critical element of gardening. It presented the material in a form that was easy to read, understand, and use with just the right amount of tables, pictures and details. We have all been there when it speaks of gardening pests, weeds, and fungus of all sorts (Japanese Beetles, the dreaded aphids, etc). The simplicity in breaking down fertilization, watering (yes, there is a specific way and time to water and it will tell you how and why!), dealing with various soil types and all manner of planting just about anything, makes it a joy to read. You''ll find yourself saying, "So that''s how you do it!" or "Now I know why it did this!" and anxiously read more when the sun goes down on your garden. It takes all the angst out of reading gardening books. The puzzling numbers on fertilizer bags, and breakdown of soil, what it may need or not need) is thorough yet simplistic. This book is easily the most fundamental gardening book in the library and a MUST READ for all of us.
