Gardener's Q&A is the ultimate gardening problem-solver. It contains 500 of the questions most commonly asked by gardeners worldwide, each one answered a member of a panel of experts formed by the National Gardening Association in the US. The entries have been selected from the NGA's ever-expanding Q&A Library-a unique database of gardening wisdom that contains over 28,000 entries and counting. The 500 Q&As featured here were chosen for their popularity and to ensure that the book covers a wide range of useful topics. Each one has been thoroughly checked, adjusted to accommodate regional variations, and revised or updated where necessary. Other features unique to the book include captioned photographs and "Editor's Note" boxes that provide additional information or alternative answers. An invaluable desktop resource for gardeners of all levels of experience, and a great complementary volume for any gardening home library, Gardener's Q&A tackles a wide range of gardening topics, from planting seedlings to how to kill slugs and other pests. For ease of reference, the questions have been split into four main chapters The Basics, Landscape Gardening, Flower Gardening, and Vegetable Gardening-and then further subdivided into subsections such as Climate and Weather, Composting, Lawns and Ground Covers, Roses, Bulbs, Fruits, and Herbs. The book also contains climatic-zone maps showing rainfall and temperature worldwide, a detailed glossary, and an extensive index.
