I must have this, if I am to graduate from a part time gardener to more serious vegetable gardening, in larger space, and with more than my immediate needs involved. Here, in one book, is a more comprehensive coverage of the problems of vegetable gardening up to date than anywhere else this season. Introductory chapters cover, in broader vein, the basic subjects essential in every book of the type. Then, alphabetically arranged, each vegetable is discussed -- type of soil, how to sow, etc. etc. Then the specific diseases and pests for each sort of vegetable -- and their treatment. There are chapters on specialties -- on herb gardens, soilless gardening, storage, etc. On early starting -- how, when and where. On the use of the vegetables. An important one volume encyclopedia for the ambitious vegetable gardener, up to the minute.
