Trowel & Error: Over 700 Shortcuts, Tips & Remedies for the Gardener (Paperback)
Cure plant viruses with spoiled milk. Steep a natural and effective insecticide out of fresh basil. Place flat stones under squash or melons to hasten ripening. Recycle an old apple corer as the perfect dibber for muscari and other small bulbs. Start rosemary cuttings in a green glass bottle. Sprinkle baby powder over seedlings to discourage rabbits. Crush a garlic clove and apply it to your skin as an insect repellent. From urging the reader to take an occasional shower with the houseplants to giving all-natural gardenside first aid, Trowel and Error is a direct line to the kind of practical wisdom that comes only after a lifetime of experience. The book is indexed by problem, plant, pest, and solution, and includes a list of tools and common household items--borax, cornmeal, vinegar--that completes the gardener's arsenal.

I love this book. It is full of short tips and ideas of how to use ordinary things in the garden. You don't have to run out and buy expensive and poisonius slug bait- just put out a saucer of beer (really works, I use this all the time now). I enjoy my copy so much that instead of lending it out I give them as gifts.Read More
