Garden guides often tell you how to deadhead, treat for pests or improve the soil. But the shovel your grandfather gave you is just fine, right?
In his book, “How to Buy the Right Plants, Tools &Garden Supplies,” Jim Fox, a horticultural consultant with decades of experience in the nursery business, takes on the basics.
More than a buying guide, it will help you choose plants that will thrive, understand planting and growing conditions, and purchase tools that will make the cut (literally).
“How to Buy the Right Plants, Tools &Garden Supplies” is $14.95 in paperback.
