"The Old-Time, Blue-Ribbon Gardener's Handbook: Tips, Techniques, and Projects" brings back the days of the big backyard and the home-oriented pleasure of days gone by. Full of visually appealing vintage art that exudes old-fashioned warmth and a wealth of classic, time-tested gardening know-how, this stunning volume is a classic that will delight beginning and experienced gardeners of all ages as well as those interested in popular culture and graphic design. This is the first gardening book of its kind to offer basic gardening information and projects illustrated with authentic vintage art, which ranges from charming seed packets and colorful gardening catalogs and advertisements to photographs and step-by-step line drawings from gardening magazines and rarely seen books. Chapters cover all the timeless basics: planning; equipment; soil; lawns; trees and shrubs; annuals and perennials; roses; bulbs, tubers, and corms; vegetable gardening; berries and fruit trees; weeds, pests, and diseases; and special projects. Tip boxes and anecdotal sidebars provide helpful information and a witty, historical perspective throughout. Beautifully designed and printed on heavy paper stock that authentically replicates the artwork, this volume is an indispensable reference of tried-and-true gardening tips and techniques that is as useful as it is collectible.
