Or Gardening without Tears"" may mean little to the complete novice but what a difference it would make they will discover as they progress along the trial and error route. The author has set out to write a ""Fannie Farmer"" for the gardener and has succeeded to a great extent. Her style is easy and entertaining, her advice sound and practical, and the book touches on every conceivable subject the beginner might want to look up, without seeming to attempt too much. A book for this spring and next. Good for the long pull and for all gardeners who realize there is always more to learn.
