Since 1984, gardeners have looked to Horticulture's bimonthly "Step-by-Step" feature for insight, shared experience, and expert advice about gardening techniques. Here at last, those articles are drawn together in a single book.Organized by season, Gardening Techniques Illustrated presents 86 projects, each complete in an easy-to-read two-page format and accompanied by exquisite, detailed line drawings of Elayne Sears. Gracious in their own right, they make the project instructions equally accessible to novice and experienced gardeners.Seven of Horticulture's foremost writers are heard from in these pages. You'll receive Janet Sanchez's straightforward tips on how to strengthen bearded irises by dividing them, as well as Thomas Christopher's humorous reflections on the connection between conservatism and potting indoor plants. Other eminent writers Nancy Bubel, Tom Fischer, Teri Dunn, Oliver Allen, and Lee Reich contribute valuable suggestions on virtually all aspects of general gardening, from soil improvement and pest control to pruning and potting trees. Whether you are looking for advice on common or uncommon gardening tasks, this book is an essential reference tool and a spur to new projects.In concise, clear language, set forth in numbered steps, each article presents all the information needed to complete the job. Surely one of the most valuable and varied resources to appear in recent years, Gardening Techniques Illustrated will be a welcome addition to any gardener's library.
