Gardening techniques for the best possible results in the shortest possible time.

Time-saving Gardener is a practical how-to reference designed for busy gardeners who can venture into their gardens for only a few hours a week. It shows how to make the best possible use of gardening time and identifies the truly essential tasks that need to be done.

Entries are organized by season and then by task, making routine jobs and special projects easy to find. Symbols indicate the priority of a task, how long it will take and whether it can be undertaken in another season.

These time-saving features include: Step-by-step work sequencesDetailed how-to illustrationsConcise easy-to-follow instructionsInformative sidebars and valuable tipsSeason-by-season projectsA directory of easy-care plants.

Time-saving Gardener is easy to follow and suitable for all gardens large or small, urban or rural. This superb guide may indeed become the most frequently used reference on a gardener's bookshelf.

Review:

"For gardeners too busy to plan, this eminently practical book takes care of the distracting work of planning, organizing and prioritizing. With an emphasis on efficiency, Hutchinson (Easy Container Gardening) lays out gardening tasks by season, labels them by priority, sorts them into logical categories — beds, borders and pools; propagation; containers; lawns; kitchen gardens; and pests and disease — and even gives an approximation of the time each task will take. The book itself is a lesson in efficiency, jam-packed with essentials from pruning bush roses (early spring) and the year's first lawn mowing (mid-spring) to frost and snow protection (late autumn) and cleaning containers and tools (winter). It also gives instruction on less common but intriguing topics such as planting alpines in walls, installing a computerized patio water system for ease and water conservation and protecting pond fish from predators. Cartloads of attractive, clear illustrations walk readers step-by-step through every project, whether it's dividing water lilies, planting a clematis into a tree, or eradicating vine weevils, and photos display the inviting outcomes. This book gives stressed-out gardeners practical advice on how to keep their backyard jungles tamed and maybe even time to enjoy the fruits of their labors."
