A new crop of garden books

Just like the garden, gardening books have seasons. Though there are new ones coming out all the time in all months of the year, you’ll see more new ones than usual in spring and the months leading up to it. That’s not by accident. Towards winter’s end, gardeners new and old are ready to get up off the couch and out digging in the dirt, so they are more likely to seek help via books.

It’s not that I think you can learn everything about gardening by reading a book, because there really is no greater teacher than experience.
