The perfect companion for old-timers who know that you don't need to be "green" in order to have a green thumb
Cultivating a garden means cultivating one's senior health and well-being, while growing all kinds of good things along the way. This book offers acres of tried and tested tips and advice that will break neither back nor bank. It provides practical information on soil preparation, gardening gear, and planting techniques, as well as chapters devoted to those old wrinkly favorites, the greenhouse and patio pots and containers. If it's a perfect swath of green that you're after to make you the envy of your wrinkly friends (and foes) then this book fits the bill, covering lawns, borders, growing fruit and vegetables, and much more, for every bored wrinkly's delight.
