Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 1995 November #3)
For years, one of the most popular features in Horticulture magazine has been the two-page "step-by-step" article that highlights a specific gardening task. Here, the complete collection-from 1987 through 1994-is presented in all its glory, including Sears's handsome, well-targeted b&w line drawings. Constituting an exceptionally useful guide, the collection is organized by season rather than month, and is thus applicable for gardeners in just about any North American hardiness zone. The 86 topics range from planting potatoes and making cut flowers last longer to naturalizing bulbs, brewing manure tea and pruning fruit trees. Seven writers contributed to the series, lending a refreshing variety of voices to the unchanging format. The consistently clear and concise instructions will inspire readers to tackle even the most daunting task, e.g., raising ferns from spores, while the wide range of subject matter addresses the interests of gardeners of all levels of ability.
