Your Gardening Year

By Greenfingers

If you are a gardener already, this little book may be superfluous to your needs, but for those with little or no horticultural knowledge who would like to make a garden, these gardening tips could help.

The ubiquitous garden plaque says:

 “One is nearer God's heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth.”

I'll settle for that!
