Garden Wisdom and Know-How: Everything You Need to Know to Plant, Grow, and Harvestby Judy Pray and Editors of Rodale Books
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.
