Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Each section of this well-organized text contains reliable and accessible instructions for growing the 40 edibles chosen by some of the 250,000 members of the National Gardening Association as their favorite food. The contents are similar to most gardening guides, emphasizing planning, the minutiae of caring for plants according to their individual needs. But the lavish color photosapproximately 500and other illustrations should attract special attention. There are suggestions on choosing vegetables, herbs, fruit trees and a variety of berries that the home gardener can expect to enjoy growing and eating. Charts noting planting and harvesting times provide additional help, especially to the beginner. (March)
Library Journal
The National Gardening Association, with over 200,000 members, is the force behind this attractive and comprehensive guide to growing edibles in one's backyard. General information on planning, preparing, and maintaining gardens is provided but the real strength of the book lies in the detailed instructions for planting, growing, and harvesting specific vegetables, herbs, fruits, and berries. Comments on different varieties of each plant will help gardeners select the best choice for their situation. A concise guide to the control of insect pests and diseases is also included. The authors describe organic methods as well as the use of chemical fertilizers. Highly recommended for public libraries. Peter C. Leonard, Carnegie Lib. of Pittsburgh
