    What a jewel! This book is a well-organized, illustrated collection of OLD gardening tips, including everything from herbs to houseplants to lawns to controlling pests. Paragraph-long entries end with their original publication sources–which are almost as interesting as the advice. The suggestions are timeless. I find I “hear” my grandparents’ wisdom about plants on every other page. This book will definitely hit my list of favorite books to give as a gift–but I’ll always save a copy for myself.

    1001 Old Time Garden Tips
    I enjoyed this book very much, and find that it is one of those gardening books that I keep going back to for new advice.
    What is interesting about 1001 Old Time Garden Tips is that so much of the advice, the tips, so much is old stuff, good old advice that has often been forgotten. I do landscaping, design work, horticultural consulting, and am a garden writer myself ( Allergy-Free Gardening, and most recently, Safe Sex in the Garden ) and I love to have good, solid, informative, well-written gardening books on hand for quick reference.
    The longer I garden ( and I’ve been at it for close to 5 decades now ) the more I appreciate an organic approach. 1001 Old Time Garden Tips: Timeless Bits of Wisdom on How to Grow Everything Organically, from the Good Old Days When Everyone Did, sure has the longest title I ever saw! But it is also a mighty good, easy to follow, highly useful book and if you garden, I’m almost certain you’d enjoy owning it. I know I sure like my copy. The editor for this great collection of useful tips and advice, Roger Yepsen, has done a terrific job.

    This book is a joy to pick up when you’re bored or looking for gardening ideas or help. I especially enjoy the “Strange But True” sections. New and Long time gardeners will enjoy this publication.
