It's all in here—step-by-step instructions for gardening success in Ohio. Veteran garden writer Jerry Minnich presents practical direction for growing all the vegetables, herbs, flowers, landscaping plants, and house plants you need for a complete garden. And all these plant varieties—more than a thousand, in all—are recommended for the Ohio climate.
This is a complete gardening guide, ideal for the beginner and for the gardener who wants a trusted answer source for a myriad of gardening questions. In separate chapters, Minnich tells how to build a healthy soil, how to make and use compost and mulch for a better garden, and how to handle weather problems. He gives directions for growing more than sixty kinds of vegetables, as well as herbs, how to stretch the season for more and larger vegetables, and a greater variety of flowering plants. Minnich, an early advocate of the organic method, also tells how to identify and control diseases and insect pests safety, and he gives sources for plant clubs, societies, and mail-order garden plants and products.
Written with style, wit, and humor, this is the best all-around gardening guide for Ohio gardeners, because it is Ohio-oriented 100%. There has never been another book like it for the Buckeye State!
Jerry Minnich who, when indoors, operates an advertising agency in Madison, Wisconsin, was honored with the Award of Merit from the Garden Writer's Association of America in 1984.
