Gardening Myths and Misconceptions - Wise Words 3 (Hardback)Charles Dowding (author)
- In stock online
Conventional wisdom is difficult to question, even when it is misguided and contains many contradictions. Gardening has its share of such `myths' - some with discernible origins in history, others that have become established for no obvious reason - and they often obscure simpler and easier methods
of working. This delightfully illustrated book reveals how common sense triumphs and crops are more successful when these `rules' are overturned.
A fascinating but practical book that will save the seasoned gardener time and give new gardeners heart.

"Beginners and experienced gardeners alike can only benefit from Charles' enthusiastic and deep understanding of what plants really need." * The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm Blog *
"It has been proven untrue that watering in sunlight damages leaves. It is also untrue that rhubarb leaves and citrus peel cannot be composted, the latter may just take a while to decay. All this and much more makes for an entertaining and instructive read." -- Mary Davies * The Irish Garden *
"For anyone who grows edibles or for that matter gardens intensively I would recommend this book." -- Helen Jonstone * The Patient Gardener *
There's enough detail here to make a real difference to your garden, but it's cleverly broken down into bite-sized chunks with illustrations, so it never feels hard-going. * The English Garden *
