Gardening is greener than ever as more Canadians want to go--and grow--organic. In The Canadian Garden Primer, his 18th book, garden guru Mark Cullen draws on his extensive personal experience to offer an easy-to-understand, comprehensive guide to designing and creating organic gardens of every size and kind, including suburban back yards, city plots, northern gardens and vegetable patches. He outlines how to guarantee gardening success in detailed chapters about soil-building, watering, mulching and other techniques. And he tells you what plants--especially native plants--work where, and how to grow them properly.
Chock full of information and anecdotes, and illustrated with more than 400 full-colour photographs, The Canadian Garden Primer is an indispensable book for organic gardeners of every stripe from coast to coast of our great country. Whether you are a neophyte or an expert, you'll find a helping hand and plenty of down-to-earth advice from one of Canadaís favourite gardeners. As Mark is fond of saying, ''Keep your knees dirty!''
