This book follows the author through a year of gardening a large bed in a public botancial garden. It gives tips on what to do and when. Advice on bugs/pests and organic solutions, purning, and when to move plants. Lots of time saving advice on how to get a specific job done with the least amount of wasted time. Really enjoyed the authors style. A very helpfull "spreadsheet" on scheduling. Lists priorities for the garden.
