I’m not sure if “clueless” accurately describes my gardening capabilities these days, seeing as I have a bit of practice at it now, I seem to be getting the hang of it! However, a few years ago I could not have made such a claim.
People often ask me if I like to read, and my first instinct is to say “no” but when I think about it, I really do enjoy reading, just not fiction. My favorite bed-time “curl up” books usually consist of reference, how-to, or cookbooks. “Clueless in the Garden” by Yvonne Cunnington fits perfectly with my taste in bedtime literature.
This is a great little book that I was given as a gift a few years ago (before I knew *anything* about gardening) It’s simple, straight-forward advice and tips on gardening for the novice are must-haves for the first-time gardener…
It’s a quick read, with reference to all the things one needs to know to have a successful garden. It covers everything from plants, to mulch to garden planning and location, and is an enjoyable and informative read.
How nice to see my book recommended on your blog! Unfortunately, I think it going out of print because it’s getting impossible to find, even on Amazon.ca and Chapters/Indigo.
Anyway, good read your words of praise, even months later.
So glad that you found my blog Yvonne! I love your book 🙂
I am very sorry to hear that it is going out of print. It has such useful information for us novice gardeners!
I am looking longingly out the window and wishing spring would come…I think we have a ways to go just yet!
Happy Gardening (when spring arrives that is) In the meanwhile, Happy Shovelling!
Hi Cat: I contacted the publisher yesterday, and there is a chance the book will be back in print shortly. It’s too soon to say more, but I’ll let you know when I know more.
