Honestly, I don't know how Rodale managed to pack so much into one book; Garden Wisdom and Know-How is a veritable clown car of information. Whether you want healthy houseplants, a lush edible garden, or a perfectly manicured lawn, this book has something for you. It covers all the basics — soil composition, seed starting, watering, and more — but also includes techniques that are more advanced (like plant grafting) and more unusual (like using a molasses-and-rum concoction to attract beneficial insects). Any gardener, be they newbie or expert, will be glad to have this one-stop reference on his or her bookshelf.

The latest addition to the bestselling Wisdom and Know-How series is a complete home reference for everything you need to know about gardening — from soil and fertilizers to growing flowers and vegetables.

Garden Wisdom and Know-How is a large-scale practical guide to planting and maintaining a garden, indoors or out. The chapters are organized by topic-garden techniques and tricks, the flower garden, the edible garden, container gardening, garden design and landscaping, attracting wildlife, and so on — and packed with information. Readers will discover tips and techniques for maintaining a garden year-round; harvesting herbs; designing by bloom season; turning garden refuse into garden rewards; building teepees, trellises, and other plant supports; and much more.

Featuring handpicked selections from dozens of publications from Rodale Books, this massive collection is full of indispensable and trusted advice from some of the most respected gardening authors in the world. And with hundreds of black-and-white illustrations and photographs as well as step-by-step projects, key gardening resources, and essential information on countless plant species, Garden Wisdom and Know-How is a must-have volume for both the aspiring and the experienced gardener.

This book has a lot of information. It also has a lot of typos. Additionally, several of the design plans have question marks in place of numbers. If you'd like information on a broad range of gardening topics, this book might be a good choice. If you'd like accurate design plans and really detailed information, I'd keep looking.
