KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a is misleading title, for here is a book that meets the demands of most gardeners who think wistfully of the potentials -- and the costs- of plant nurseries as a source of supply. The title led me to expect it to be a book for those who wanted to go into the business. Actually, it is a book for the amateur gardener, showing the feasibility of utilizing some small waste area for starting seeds outdoors, for putting out wild plants, transferring volunteers, making use of special offers of seedling shrubs and trees and perennials, and getting a head start on your own garden futures. Location- exposure- requirements and preparation of soil- amount of space- utilization of space- planting- cultivating- watering- pruning, these are a few of the basic how- tos that comprise a practical book for every earnest gardener. It has enough of inspiration to offset the inevitable excess of perspiration entailed.
