Down to Earth: Practical Thoughts for Passionate Gardeners (Hardback)

Currently unavailable to order online.

Down to Earth is about gardening for pleasure: exerting minimal effort for maximum results. So many gardening books make America's favorite hobby seem both mentally and physically laborious. They are full of esoteric advice on color theory, plant combinations, and nutrient requirements, as well as stern admonitions to double-dig, weed, and color coordinate. Rochester encourages readers to garden for self-gratification.
