GARDENING COMPLETE: How to Best Grow Vegetables, Flowers, and Other Outdoor Plants
From vegetables to ornamentals to flowers and beyond, gardening is a big subject. Building raised beds, improving soil, encouraging pollinators…the list of topics is virtually endless. It’s hard for one person to know it all. That’s why Gardening Complete is not the creation of just one expert.
In this big and beautiful encyclopedia of gardening know-how, you find the best advice from eight of Cool Springs Press’s most knowledgeable and prolific garden writers. They include: Katie Elzer-Peters on soil and compost; Rhonda Fleming-Hayes on pollinator gardens; Charlie Nardozzi on container gardening; Tara Nolan on raised beds; Dr. Jacqueline A. Soule on watering, fertilizing, and pruning; Lynn Steiner on native plants; Jessica Walliser on weed and pest control; and George Weigel on botany.
Gardening Complete is the most up-to-date and complete guide to gardening for homeowners. Inside, eight of North America’s top gardening experts—and Cool Springs Press authors—present 19 subjects of critical interest to anyone who wants to learn or broaden gardening skills.
Whether your main interest is in designing landscapes and gardens, ornamental gardening to make your yard more attractive, or gardening to provide nutritious edibles for the family table, this book will become your definitive source of information. It is intended for serious beginning to intermediate gardeners, but even veteran gardeners will be intrigued by what these experts have to say about core gardening skills and common horticultural subjects.
Gardening Complete is a practical book that demonstrates how to accomplish the routine activities of gardening, including: planning and planting your garden, essential care for the garden during the growing season, dealing with pests and diseases, and harvesting fruits and vegetables. While many gardening books focus on regional plant species or devote large sections to some form of plant catalog, this book is different. Gardening Complete serves not only as a self-contained manual for gardening skills and information in all regions, but also as a sampler that may help you determine where to focus your gardening hobby in the future or even help you identify authors you’d like to explore further.
Cool Springs Press authors have extensive experience and are among the most passionate gardeners you will ever meet, helping thousands of gardeners achieve success around the world. That passion and success come together in a thorough, information-packed book, perfect for new and experienced gardeners, and one that gardeners will refer to year-round, season after season.
