Item description

THE GARDEN PRIMER-Barbara Damrosch 6 73 PAGES HCDJ COMPREHENSIVE WITH GENERAL ADVICE The garden primer (Hardcover) by Barbara Damrosch "The gardening bug can bite at any moment..." Hardcover: 673 pages Publisher: Workman Pub (1988) Language: English ISBN: 0894803174 Shipping Weight: 2.76 pounds List Price: 12.95 From Publishers Weekly "Keep gardening simple" is the reassuring maxim invoked by Damrosch ( Theme Gardens ) time and again in this outstanding compendium of garden lore, information and advice for novices and old-timers. The author, an "old-fashioned dirt gardener," advocates common sense, respect for the delicate balance of nature and a hands-on approach. Her book brims with sound advice for garden planning, planting and maintenance, and her relaxed attitude about equipment ("buy a few good implements and treat them well") and disease and pest control ("when in doubt, don't spray") is refreshing. Ornamental plants, from vines ("willful children") to herbs ("anarchists of the garden"), are evaluated thoughtfully, and gardeners will profit from Damrosch's manageable lists of annuals, perennials, ground covers, shrubs and trees. They will be entertained, as well, by the author's engaging, witty voice. Vegetables and fruits are discussed in mini-chapters; illustrations and an appendix of mail-order sources, etc., round out the book. From Library Journal Beginning gardeners can be overwhelmed by the vast amount of printed information available. Damrosch offers a comprehensive book for the new gardener that clearly explains the basics of garden planning, plant care, and equipment. Detailed chapters on the different categories of plants--annuals, perennials, vegetables, fruits, lawns, shrubs, roses, vines, trees, wildflowers, and even house plants--give general advice on how to use and care for these varieties. A valuable book for public libraries. Cultivate this Book; See what Grows, September 11, 2003 Reviewer: M. Swinney "Marc My Words" (Eagle, ID) Barbara Damrosch has written the tour de force in practical gardening handbooks for the novice and green-thumbed alike. What is truly impressive in the book is how Damrosch manages to cover so much gardening acreage in one mid-sized book. There are chapters on landscape planning, plant care, gear, buying tips, annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, fruits, bulbs, roses, lawns and ground covers, vines, shrubs, trees, wildflowers, and even house plants. Whew...that was a list. Though it would seem with such an exhaustive table of contents that maybe the gardening reader would get to know far too little about a lot, such is not the case. Once you are done reading trees per say, you feel like you got a fairly thorough branching of the woody subject. Though, if you are solely interested in vegetable gardening let's say, there are more detailed and exhaustive books out there, but chances are someday you will tire of rhubarbs and radishes and get the thorny point to plant a rose or two, you will find on that piercing day that you pine to have bought Damrosch's green bible. I reach for this book time and time again with dirt-caked hands. Before you sow and grow, be well-read and what a better place to start than Damrosch's "Garden Primer." A Gifted Teacher, May 4, 2001 Reviewer: Little Dorrit "ldorrit" (WA state) Barbara Damrosch and her husband, Eliot Coleman, are the type of teachers that I find the most helpful. They stand in your shoes and ask what would I want to know on this subject, then proceed to tell you precisely and in plain language, not only what you want to know but what you didn't even know to ask. I've taped all their television shows on gardening and have a number of the books both of them have written, but when I walk out in the garden and see a problem, whether it be disease or bug, it is this book that is my guide. I also grab it whenever I'm planting, fertilizing or harvesting most anything. I just put in grapes, blueberries, blackberries, honeysuckle, clematis and the only book I referred to was this one. Never intimidating, always helpful, if I could only have one gardening book, this would be it.
