Publisher's Summary

We've all admired our neighbors' gorgeous gardens filled with flowering perennials and longed to recreate their beauty in our own back yard. But if we're being honest, when it comes to gardening, most of us have no idea where to begin. Additionally, in these economic times, who can afford to hire an expert to come in and do the job for us? That said, regular folks all across North America and Europe are returning to the soil, shovels in hand. With the help of this book, there is absolutely no need to fly blind into the world of green thumbs, perennials, and herbs. The name - Garden Guide: A No Nonsense, No PhD Guide to Great Gardens with Hand-Holding How-To's for Beginners and Straightforward Instruction for Advanced Gardeners - truly says it all. Indeed, this book is the hand-holding garden guide that will walk even the most timid novice right through the gardening process from beginning to end. In addition to straightforward, practical advice in everyday language, you will love the stories and anecdotes Olver shares from her 15 years of backyard, organic gardening adventures. Easy and entertaining, you'll probably listen to this book in one sitting, but you'll reference it for years to come. The beauty of Garden Guide is that Olver divides her advice into two sections: Beginning Gardeners and Advanced Gardeners. No matter what your skill level, there are simple explanations, tips, and tricks that will walk you through every aspect of the garden process. Garden Guide features details such as:

  • Everything you need to know about location, from sunlight to drainage to selecting just the right spot
  • How to understand soil types, how to amend and condition them
  • pH levels and soil testing broken down in simple terms
  • Step by Step guide for planning your perfect garden no matter where the location
  • Fertilizing made manageable with explanations for all those numbers and organic alternatives
