KIRKUS REVIEW

Aficionados of Crockett's Victory Garden will cherish this month-by-month approach to indoor gardening. Crockett classifies easy (English ivy), more demanding (gardenia), and greenhouse (anemone) plants, and suggests ideal planting times through the year--windowsill lettuce in June or dwarf marigolds for surprise color in February. As always, he makes it look easy and attractive, and he tucks in helpful special sections--propagation, cactus, pests, dish gardens, constructable greenhouses. The photographs are close-up stunners (a few as suggestive as O'Keeffe paintings) and the drawings are precise. It's hard to imagine a more auspicious sequel, or a better gift for landless, plant-loving friends.
