    Product Description-The New York Times 1000 Gardening
  Questions and Answers: Based on the New York Times Column
                        "Garden Q & A."
Authoritative, accessible, and engaging, here is a new reference from The New York Times, a comprehensive, nearly 700-page
   bible of all the garden news that's fit to print. Based on "Gardeners Q&A." the enormously popular syndicated column, 1000
  Gardening Questions and Answers is like a passionate conversation between gardeners and gardening experts. Every week
  readers from around the country send in their most vexing problems--how to divide perennials, prune raspberry canes, grow
basil that really tastes like basil, get rid of earwigs, find long-lost varieties of flowers, keep honeysuckle under control--and every
week, the authorities at the Times write a column full of answers.Carefully selected, updated, and expanded by Leslie Land, one
 of the column's two authors, here are 1,000 Q&As that add up to an informal encyclopedia of gardening knowledge. The book
    covers flowers, trees, shrubs, the lawn, vegetables, herbs, fruit, indoor plants, soil, pests, and troublemakers. It addresses
    problems and provides answers to difficulties in every North American zone. Hundreds of line drawings illustrate the book,
    providing botanical identification and demonstrating how-to gardening techniques. In addition, sidebars throughout supply
   supplemental information--"Dos and Don'ts of Deadheading," "Annuals that Beat the Heat," "To Prune or Not to Prune: The
 Clematis Question," "Air Layering," "Windowsill Bonsai"--plus quirky facts, trivia, lore, and myth. It's big, it's got heft, it's filled to
  the brim with information. And it's so lively, it reads like a novel--and belongs on every gardener's potting bench and bedside
                                                                    table.

Excellent Gardening Resource, high recommend, June 21, 2006 By Amalfi Coast Girl (Mid-Atlantic, USA)
This review is from: The New York Times 1000 Gardening Questions and Answers: Based on the New York Times Column
"Garden Q & A." (Paperback) I love to cook, and I decided to try my hand at gardening to see if I could grow some of our food.
Needless to say, I had no idea what I was doing. I found this book at Smith and Hawken and it and helped me to obtain
reasonable results the first year. My garden now grows a little more each year. I turn to this book regularly, when I am planning
on expanding my garden or troubleshooting.The book is subdivided as follows:1. The Flower Garden2. The Landscape
Garden3. The Kitchen Garden4. The Potted Garden5. Garden KeepingThe Flower Garden deals with annuals, perennials,
roses and bulbs. Plants that bloom in the spring, summer, fall and then fade back in the winter.The Landscape Garden will
answer questions about the bigger picture it covers: ground cover, lawns, shrubs, trees and vines. The chapter also covers path
materials and garden design.The Kitchen Garden provides...

This review is from: The New York Times 1000 Gardening Questions and Answers: Based on the New York Times Column
"Garden Q & A." (Hardcover) This is an easy to read, practical guide to everyday gardening questions, with lots of specifics,
reference materials, and explanations. The index is massive, the research is thorough, and the subject matter will strike a chord
with every true gardener. I highly recommend this book to help answer the mysteries that seem to crop up every year in a
northeastern garden.

A title which lends to leisure browsing as much as reference, June 17, 2003 By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)
This review is from: The New York Times 1000 Gardening Questions and Answers: Based on the New York Times Column
"Garden Q & A." (Paperback) With its question/answer format and a blending of information gleaned from over a decade of New
York Time's gardening column, The New York Times 1000 Gardening Questions And Answers: Based On The Column
"Gardeners Q. & A" gathers the questions of avid gardeners and the experiences and advice of gardening professionals under
one cover. Add a chatty tone to their answers, which goes into more than just a few lines of detail, and an organization by type
of plant, and you have a title which lends to leisure browsing as much as reference.
