Comments Decoding Gardening Advice: The Science Behind the 100 Most Common Recommendations

  1. Good basic advice Scientific nice But I d like to have seen it be focused on sustainable solutions Seemed to be too much advice to use synthetic fertilizer and pesticide though they did mention that there is no substitute for good soil and hand weeding.


  2. I like this book It s based on science, not rumors, superstitions, or crazy people s theories, which, honestly, a lot of gardening advice is They cite sources in this book Real scientific ones The information is organized into useful sections soil, water, pests, mulch, annuals, perennials and bulbs, trees and shrubs, vegetables and fruit, and lawn care These sections accurately reflect the kind of questions people wonder about The advice ranges from old gardeners tales to some hippie woo magick [...]


  3. I loved it Informative, interesting and unbiased Clearly they are fans of sustainable gardening, as the basis of their advice is soil health Those reviewers who said the authors are anti organic or pro chemical clearly did not read the whole book.


  4. Straightforward, practical, cites actual research but retains a conversational style Lots info than I could possibly remember but I feel like if I encounter some of the advice in future I ll at least know to say hang onI read something about that The static structure of each section the advice, what happens, a better way, the real dirt made some sections a bit needlessly repetitive not all ideas required that much info Overall I thought it was balanced and realistic while appealing to research [...]



  5. This would be a great book to have on my bookshelf at home The authors provide sound advice that gives direction Who knew you are not supposed to beat a tree to get it to flower Who knows anyone who does this I have always put gravel at the bottom of containers to improve drainage and used outdated pesticides Both are just wrong You can use urine as a fertilizer, but that advice is debatable and the reason why is in this book If you create a garden environment favorable to earthworms, then you a [...]


  6. Decoding Gardening Advice The Science Behind the 100 Most Common Recommendations by Jeff Gillman and Meleah Maynard Timber Press 2012 635 is a scientific examination of the customs, practices, and recommendations which home gardeners encounter from all sides After the authors reviewed the claims, the old saws were sorted into piles of good advice , debatable advice , and wrong advice This was an interesting though not an earthshaking read My rating 5 10, finished 4 16 12.


  7. I was interested in the topic of this book but it didn t wow me If you have never gardened before this could potentially be helpful Being written by one horticulture professor and one master gardener, it has its limitations If you are an avid gardener or a active master gardener, then this book is not for you.


  8. The problem with this book s approach is that not everyone has the same criteria for good advice For instance, I ll take the less effective methods if I can keep organic or have only a minor problem He is not a believer in the first do now harm school of gardening He prefers the sedge hammer and guaranteed results The book is interesting, but I certainly wouldn t spend money to buy it.


  9. Easy to read and a nice layout The authors respond to 100 of the most common bits of gardening advice They dispute a few myths and dish out some good advice in a clear, concise, and at times humorous style.


  10. Topics each given a chapter in this book are soil, water, pest et al control, mulch, flowers, trees, vegetables and lawns This is an easy read for the hobbyist gardener.Read the entire review here boldbookworm ga071312ml BBboldbookworm


  11. I just started a year long study on gardening with the hopes of creating the perfect vegetable garden and ultimate lush, green lawn I just got this book today and it s fantastic Right off the bat it starts off with the importance of having good soil A great beginners book.


  12. Our friend, CSA member, and area Master Gardener co authored this informative resource especially great for anyone who s ever wondered about the do s and don ts and the reasons behind various gardening advice Entertaining and to the point Reviewed by Bossy K


  13. Really good and creative approach to debunking myths and suggesting what works best in gardening Love that a professor of Horticultural Science and a master gardener wrote this together Highly recommended.


  14. There s a slightly anti organics theme running through the book that puts me off and maybe that s why I m not as into this book as I thought I would be.




  15. I enjoyed this as a quick read A few of the things practices given thumbs down are actually things I do so I am rethinking why I do, what I do Thought provoking.



  16. Nice layout of the topics and supporting information Very interesting with some good points to consider for next year.
