Every new gardener has to start somewhere—and the process can be intimidating. It is important to know when and what to plant, how to care for the plants once they’re in the ground, and how to protect against pests and diseases. Luckily, Daryl Beyers—an New York Botanical Garden expert—has written what will be a go-to resource for decades.

The New Gardener’s Handbook is a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of gardening based on the introductory gardening class that Beyers teaches at NYBG. Readers will learn about soil, plant selection, propagation, planting and mulching, watering and feeding, pruning, weeds, pests, and diseases. The information applies to both ornamental and edible plants. Featuring inspiring photography and helpful illustrations,

The New Gardener’s Handbook gives home gardeners a foundation upon which they can grow and encourages them to apply the lessons they’ve learned intuitively and naturally.
