This seems to me a very valuable book. I have worked in gardens for more than thirty years and it seems to me to be just what the experienced and the inexperienced gardener wants. It is based on questions that have come in during the twelve years the author has handled a department on gardening, and therefore answers many of the questions that are in the amateur gardener's mind each season. A valuable reference book, for general and wide recommendation. Not a scholarly treatise but a compendium of practical wisdom."" So reports a garden fan.
