Product Description

From the Publisher

Grow Your Own Greens with Vegetable Gardening For Dummies!
You can't tell rhubarbs from rutabaga and you don't know kale from kohlrabi, but you want to plant an exceptional vegetable garden this year. Don't despair! Vegetable Gardening For Dummies, a new book by the National Gardening Association's chief horticulturist Charlie Nardozzi, provides green thumbs and novices alike with an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to growing delicious, nutritious, and beautiful vegetables.

Whether you want to grow just a few tomatoes in that dirt patch out back or whether you're determined to create an enormous, exotic garden with plenty of bok choy, mizuna, and escarole, Vegetable Gardening For Dummies will guide you through the entire process.

The book explains how to choose just the right spot for your veggie garden and then directs you to the planting guidelines for your climatic region. When you're ready to start planting, Vegetable Gardening For Dummies provides in-depth information about the most popular vegetables, in addition to covering the basics about a slew of lesser-known veggies like salsify and radicchio.

Vegetable Gardening For Dummies makes growing vegetables so easy you'll count the days until your veggie garden grows!

Very informative 27 Mar. 2000
By kerridv - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like the rest of the books in the Dummies series, this book takes a light-hearted approach to a heavy topic such as gardening. By focusing on vegetables the content remains helpful and informative. The book was divided into sensible sections--the basics, what to plant, how to plant, and so forth. I appreciated the instruction on gardening beginnings such as constructing a bean pole and what tools a novice needs. The last half of the book talks about specific vegetables, and has handy information on what grows best where. I believe this makes a good first-time gardener book or a companion to a book with more pictures.

Any Gardener's Must-Have Book 5 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have other gardening books, but none of them are as easy-to-follow or as comprehensive as this one. The text is so much fun, it's easy to read cover-to-cover. Yet, if you need specific information on a certain type of vegetable or technique, the index is very easy to use. The appendix gives the dates and growing seasons for every major (or minor) city in the U.S., as well as additional resources and catalogs to consult. A wonderful resource for a novice or an experienced gardener.

A must have for every gardener! 2 Feb. 2001
By Troy M. - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great book for any vegetable gardener. It is easy to follow and you don't have to read it from start to finish. It is laid out so you can go to the sections that interest you the most. I am a first year gardener, and I got many, many compliments on my first ever vegetable garden, thanks mostly to the help of this book. A must have!

It's very easy to understand, regardless of whether you are just beginning to get your hands in the dirt, or have a few growing seasons under your belt...I learned many things I was unaware of. Great book - and wonderful reference material to have on hand.
Great book! 14 Dec. 2014

This is the perfect book for a not so pro gardener. I have had gardens before, but I always have questions. This book does a good job at answering those questions, without boring me to death. I love all of the "for dummies" books!
