Instead of hunting through scores of garden books for bits of knowledge, consult the Horticulture Gardener's Desk Reference, an accessible one-stop reference designed to answer the gardener's every question. In addition, the appendices are an exhaustive resource of plant societies, public gardens, and mail-order seed and nursery companies all over the world.
With editorial oversight from Horticulture magazine, one of America's oldest experts in gardening, authoritative, up-to-date advice is geared for gardeners at all levels. An explanation of Latin botanical nomenclature is coupled with advanced gardening techniques, such as pruning for a triple cordon espalier.
Basic horticulture is not overlooked, with chapters devoted to particular groups of plants or types of gardens. You can find recommendations for the best trees and shrubs in a mixed border, ornamental grasses that naturalize easily, or the easiest hot peppers to grow in a vegetable garden.
Scattered throughout are how-to line drawings that illustrate everything from dividing perennials and correctly pruning hedges to removing a large limb from an established tree. Rounding out this reference are lists and sidebars devoted to miscellaneous topics, such as ancient Celtic seasons, the Chinese agricultural calendar, top rose breeders, and herbs that make a nice substitute for bubble bath. Whether the information you seek is basic or obscure, you'll find it in the Horticulture Gardener's Desk Reference.

Review:

Under the editorial supervision of Horticulture magazine, Halpin has created a reference book on growing, propagating, and caring for plants. The beginning gardener will find general explanations on everything from soil chemistry to the specific uses of various plants. Lists are interspersed with short, clearly explained techniques for care and maintenance, making it perfect for quick thumb-throughs.

Review:

... the first books a gardener needs are general ... Horticulture Gardener's Desk Reference ... fits the bill perfectly. -- The New York Times, Dora Galitzki
