From the author of Pearls of Country Wisdom comes this essential handbook that offers hundreds of tips on gardening knowledge and skills and yields hours of satisfaction in the soil. In "Pearls of Garden Wisdom," Tukua and coauthor Vicki West tell readers how to grow flowers, fruits, and vegetables (both indoors and out) and then use their harvest in everything from salads to natural remedies to household decorations. Here's a sampling of their simple, creative advice: -- Searching for a masculine container to house a floral arrangement for that special man? Try a metal lunch box, bowling bag, or hiking boot.-- To help cut flowers stay fresh longer, add two tablespoons of vinegar and three tablespoons of sugar to each quart of warm water.-- To harvest one really large pumpkin, cut off all the blossoms from the plant except two.-- Don't wear perfume, hairspray, scented deodorant, or brightly colored clothing in the garden. You'll be less attractive to bees and other flying pests.-- Dry summer predicted? Plant peppers. They do very well in dry conditions.Divided into such chapters as Container and Indoor Gardening, Gift and Craft Projects from the Garden, Cooking Tips and Recipes, and Pest Control and Plant Diseases, "Pearls of Garden Wisdom" is an easy-to-follow guide that all hands-on nature lovers will enjoy.
