About the Book

Each of the twelve chapters in this basic, practical book is preceded by an overview of the principles and procedures involved in the aspect of gardening under discussion. The overviews may be consulted before, during, and after the planting season when ordering supplies, carrying out maintenance, and doing overall troubleshooting. But the heart of The Gardener’s Hint Book are the thousands of suggestions, clearly written to ensure successful gardening. Profusely illustrated with line drawings. This title, originally published in 1978, is available on-demand only.
