NO NONSENSE VEGETABLE GARDENING is an exuberant, design-driven garden gift book with useful, easy-to-digest information on every page. Simple, no-nonsense garden advice cuts through complexities and misinformation. The text is arranged around the whimsical Peter Rabbit-style illustrations and graphics of Mariko McCrae, and full-color photographs. The easy-access charts and he-says, she-says dialogue boxes take the science of gardening and put it into a language everyone can understand...and feel empowered by.
