The Informed Gardener Blooms Again

The Informed Gardener Blooms Again picks up where The Informed Gardener left off, using scientific literature to debunk a new set of common gardening myths. Once again, Linda Chalker-Scott investigates the science behind each myth, reminding us that urban and suburban landscapes are ecosystems requiring their own particular set of management practices. The Informed Gardener Blooms Again provides answers to questions such as: Does using drought-tolerant plants reduce water consumption?Is it more effective to spray fertilizers on the leaves of trees and shrubs than to apply it to the soil?Will cedar wood chips kill landscape plants?Should I use ladybugs in my garden as a form of pest control?Does aerobically brewed compost tea suppress disease?Every year Chalker-Scott receives hundreds of e-mails from around the world on these and related topics. Her advice, based on more than twenty years of experience in the field of plant physiology, has helped home gardeners, landscape architects, and nursery and landscape professionals to develop scientifically based sustainable landscaping practices.Watch the book trailer: https: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWrk2894iyA ...
