Compiled by Reader’s Digest, this large reference guide is a revised edition of a book that set the benchmark for gardening information more than 30 years ago. Updated with the latest advances in horticulture, it now focuses strictly on organic gardening, presenting innovative techniques alongside time-tested traditional methods.
There are sections on garden planning, lawns and ground covers, ornamentals (including extensive information on roses, hedges, shrubs and trees), fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as a section on general garden care, soil maintenance and pest, weed and disease control. To help navigate the book, the page edges are color-coded by section.
Every stage of growth from seed to harvest is covered, and plentiful photos, illustrations and charts make the information easy to understand. It includes hardiness zone maps of the USA and Canada. A definitive guide at an excellent price.
