Excellent Guidebook for Gardeners
on May 26, 2009
I've been puttering around with my vegetable garden for four or five years now, picking up pieces of advice from books, radio programs, the web, etc. but this is the first source I've come across with such simple, easy to use tips from a Canadian perspective. Want to know what zone you live in? What's the best way to improve your soil? What veggies will grow best and how should I space them in a small garden plot? All these questions and more will be answered by author Doug Green.
Another significant feature is the When To Plant, Where To Plant, and How To Plant sections for everything from Asparagus to Watermelon. Care & Maintainance and Additional Information sections that round out the individual vegetable breakdowns are helpful to new and experienced gardeners alike.
An overall useful, educational, and fun read. Green is a serious gardener but doesn't take himself overly seriously and his primary piece of advice for us novice gardeners is have fun. I like that.
