The Gardening Complete: How to Best Grow Vegetables, Flowers, and Other Outdoor Plants is a great resource for growing vegetables, flowers and plants. This encyclopedia of gardening know how is just what every gardener needs to get started. This resource has beautiful photographs to help inspire you on your journey to gardening.
From vegetables to ornamentals to flowers and beyond, gardening is a big subject. Building raised beds, improving soil, encouraging pollinators…the list of topics is virtually endless. It’s hard for one person to know it all. That’s why Gardening Complete is not the creation of just one expert. In this big and beautiful encyclopedia of gardening know-how, you find the best advice from eight of Cool Springs Press’s most knowledgeable and prolific garden writers. They include: Katie Elzer-Peters on soil and compost; Rhonda Fleming-Hayes on pollinator gardens; Charlie Nardozzi on container gardening; Tara Nolan on raised beds; Dr. Jacqueline A. Soule on watering, fertilizing, and pruning; Lynn Steiner on native plants; Jessica Walliser on weed and pest control; and George Weigel on botany.
Every since I can remember I have always loved to garden! Growing up with my grandparents they were always growing something whether it was their flower or vegetable garden. However, they are in their 80’s now and are unable to garden like they once did. They have instilled the same work ethic in me only I’m still learning how to be a good gardener. Sometimes plants grow, and sometimes I kill everything trying to use all natural methods of fertilization. With the help of wonderful resources like Gardening Complete I will one day be able to fill my gardening area with vegetable and flowers.
