With this revised, easy-to-use gardener's companion, you can plan the year's horticultural tasks and get ahead in the garden whatever the season. Gardening Through the Year is clearly laid out and completely practical in approach. For each month there are specific tasks for every part of the garden from trees to lawns, at-a-glance checklists, expert plant advice, and invaluable "Get Ahead" and "Last Chance" features. With more than 1,000 full-color photographs, this is the garden reference book that not only tells you what to do when, but also shows you how to do it.
