Whether in ancient books, on television, or in gardening publications, remedies for all your garden woes are here for the taking: the challenge is to know what will work and what won't.
Fearlessly conducting original experiments and harvesting wisdom from the scientific literature, horticulturalist Jeff Gillman assesses new and historic advice and reveals the how and whyâ· and sometimes the why notâ· for more than 100 common and uncommon gardening practices. The results will surprise even experienced gardeners.
"[A] book that shoots down many fabled solutions that are really a waste of time."
Both these books [The Truth About Organic Gardening and The Truth About Garden Remedies] are refreshing, lucid and enlightening. Their spare style, with no illustrations, and concentration on facts rather than inspiration even gives them an old-fashioned charm.
Wondering how best to keep your garden healthy? Let Jeff Gillman do the research, so you dont waste time and money trying to add nutrients to the soil, keeping slugs and deer away, or protecting your roses from powdery mildew and black spot.
"Gillman's goal is to get gardeners to thinkto make sure there is a reason behind everything they do for their plants."
