The Dirt-Cheap Green Thumb: 400 Thrifty Tips for Saving Money, Time, and Resources as You Garden Cover

 

Staff Pick

Don't let the title fool you; The Dirt-Cheap Green Thumb is not only about saving money. It's also about simplifying your gardening life. Master gardener Rhonda Massingham Hart dispels the myth that gardening need be labor intensive or expensive to be effective. With information on the top performing plant varieties, tips for increasing the efficiency and disease resistance of your garden, and advice on what not to buy at the garden-supply store, this deceptively small and downright adorable book has all the tools you need to create the garden of your dreams without breaking the bank.

Publisher Comments:

More and more people are venturing into the dirt every day, inspired by the promise of fresh-from-the-backyard produce and lower grocery bills. But like any hobby, gardening has its pitfalls; without the right planning and know-how, even experienced gardeners can discover with shock that they've grown a $64 tomato!

Fortunately, gardeners don't have to choose between frugal and fantastic. In The Dirt-Cheap Green Thumb, Rhonda Massingham Hart provides practical, commonsense advice that helps growers save money . . . without compromising the harvest. Using an accessible tip format, Hart offers time-tested solutions that stretch a dollar, even as they yield beautiful, bountiful plants.

From starting seeds to preserving produce, and from compost to water conservation, Hart's advice ensures that readers waste neither time nor money. The book offers dozens of helpful lists, including

"pennywise plants" and "best ofs," and it covers all types of gardens — including vegetables, flowers, houseplants, and landscape foliage. Sidebars offer innovative money-saving tips and simple instructions. The book will appeal to the first-time gardener, as well as to more experienced growers who are newly budget-conscious.
