Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
``An excellent nontechnical work for the beginner'' is what LJ 's reviewer called the first edition of this book ( LJ 2/15/78). Here, Nicholls updates information on the methods of soilless gardening, which include raising plants in containers of water, gravel, sand, rocks, brick, and even styrofoam. He discusses the particular problems of soilless gardening in terms of pest control and weather and light conditions. New to this edition is a list of manufacturers and suppliers of greenhouses and greenhouse accessories; hydroponic materials; lighting equipment; and seeds; as well as a suggested list for further reading on the subject.-- Judy Quinn, ``Library Journal''

It is very easy to understand ,goes into a quick detail on the history of hydroponics ( for us nerds)& shows many methods of how to grow plants.It's a good book to have for those of us that have a green thumb but not the space or the sunlight we need to grow normally .

The history of Hydroponics makes this a worthwhile read. The Aztecs were forced to grow hydroponically by their oppressors on floating 'raft gardens'. The 'Hanging Gardens' of Babylon may have been hydro's. An interesting read.
