What? You don't?
Not to worry. "The American Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Gardening Techniques" has your back.
The extensive reference book teaches the skills involved in growing edible and ornamental plants, as well as specialty endeavors such as water gardening, greenhouse gardening and propagating plants. Mostly it covers the basics, but it includes information helpful to more seasoned gardeners, too.
Ample color illustrations and photos make the instructions easier to understand.
The book is edited by David J. Ellis, Fiona Gilsenan, Rita Pelczar and Graham Rice. It is published by Octopus Books and sells for $29.99 in softcover.
