About the Author:

Barbara W. Ellis is a freelance writer, editor, and lifelong gardener. She is the author of many gardening books, including The Veggie Gardener’s Answer Book, Deckscaping, Shady Retreats, and Covering Ground. She holds a B.S. in horticulture from the Ohio State University, Columbus, and a B.A. from Kenyon College. She has worked as managing editor at Rodale Press and as publications director for the American Horticultural Society and is affiliated with the Hardy Plant Society Mid-Atlantic Group, the Garden Writers Association, and the Perennial Plant Association. She lives and gardens in Maryland, where she and her husband live in a renovated “green” home with an assortment of rescued dogs, cats, and parrots. Her garden, which is managed organically and designed to be wildlife-friendly, features a wide range of ornamentals, herbs, and edibles for both sun and shade.

From Booklist:

In this latest addition to Storey’s popular Answer Book series, veteran horticulturist and gardener Ellis uses the straightforward Q&A format to furnish pithy responses to the most basic, as well as the most esoteric, gardening questions. From the simple sowing of seeds to the complexities of crop rotation to the benefits of organic pest control, Ellis demystifies essential cultural techniques and practices, and profiles more than 20 popular garden crops. Helpful sidebars offer tips on such critical topics as weeding and harvesting, while appendixes cover crop-planting guidelines and a state-by-state breakdown of growing seasons. As global warming and natural disasters continue to impact the availability and affordability of commercially produced vegetables, the merits of growing one’s own food become increasingly important. Knowing what to do, and when and how to do it, is made abundantly clear in Ellis’ handy, quick-reference guide. --Carol Haggas
