| ||Tilling is the best way to prepare a garden for planting. Gardens should always be mulched. Only divide perennials in summer. Never water plants in direct sunlight. Everyone seems to have advice for gardeners. But how much of this advice is good advice? |
Covering more than 100 universal gardening "dos and don'ts", Decoding Gardening Advice is the first book to provide gardeners with the real answers. Jeff Gillman and Meleah Maynard back up every good recommendation with sound horticultural and botanical science. This is the first and only hard-hitting, evidence-based book that every gardener needs for definitive advice on everything from bulbs, annuals and perennials to edibles, trees and soil care.
