Review

"I filled a small notebook with wonderful ideas I found in Great Garden Fix-Its. That notebook is going in my idea library."--Patricia Lanza, one of Epcot 2000's Great American Gardeners and author of Lasagna Gardening

"I've been gardening for decades but still found all sorts of helpful new tricks in this book. I especially like the fact that the ideas are gardener-tested; I can't wait to try them out. And I absolutely love the fun retro illustrations, not to mention the easy-on-the-eyes layout."--Erin Hynes, author of several books, including Rodale's Weekend Gardener, and contributor to 1001 Ingenious Gardening Ideas

I refer to this book frequently for everday garden problems. I had a problem with aphids on my chives - per the book hosing them down several times got rid of them. Likewise I followed the suggestions for controlling stink bugs. The pest identification guide at the back of the book covers most common garden pests and gives methods of control. This book is a helpful addition to a garden and houseplant reference collection.
