Review by Library Journal (2011-02-15)

You don't have to be a land baron to grow successfully your own fruits, vegetables, herbs, and even edible flowers. The American Horticultural Society here provides step-by-step instruction, applicable to all temperate regions and climates throughout North America, for the average gardener to sustain a year-round kitchen garden. Color photos inspire and illustrate how to perform a wide variety of essential chores and techniques, from soil preparation to pruning and beyond.

Correct timing and coordination of growing activities are emphasized, along with advice on how to use small spaces to full growing capacity. Insect and disease control are covered, with charts of fruit and vegetable pests and diseases. The society's sowing and harvesting charts for fruits and vegetables, which are both -region- and climate-specific, are designed to take any guesswork out of planning crops.

Verdict: This comprehensive and well-organized text will be useful to both beginners and experienced gardeners, good for both public and school and college libraries. Thumbs up!-Deborah Anne Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Dunwoody
