Reviews for The Anxious Gardener's Book of Answers
If you are planting your first garden or perhaps have just had your first garden disaster, this is the book to find out where things went wrong. As much as I would like to stick a few plants in the ground, scatter some seeds, and come back to a bountiful garden, it doesn’t work that way. There are planting times, weeds, pests, and a variety of problems that can occur. The Anxious Gardener’s Book of Answers is written question and answer style with topics covering most of the important aspects of good garden care. The book covers proper planting times and depths, soil, weed control, fertilizer, pests, different plant types, and much more. Most topics contain information on what can go wrong, the right way to do it, and if it can be fixed if a mistake is made. This book is more for beginners because there is just basic information on each subject, but it is certainly enough to get started and a great quick reference guide if you are not sure about something that has gone wrong.read more
