Gardening can be intimidating. Every single gardener makes mistakes whether we are novices or experts. We are plagued by insects, plants that sometimes fail to succeed and spring bulbs that never seem to bloom despite beautiful foliage. Often we are left to troubleshoot things on our own. We know that next year there will be another growing season, a chance to start fresh.
I was very happy to find that there is a new book on the market for the less experienced gardener that suddenly makes easy practical sense out of mysteries of gardening and helps to troubleshoot and prevent problems from even occurring in the first place.
Timber Press Publishing is known for their wonderful gardening publications. The Anxious Gardener’s Book of Answers by Teri Dunn Chace is like a cheat sheet for gardeners. Don’t be fooled by its compact size. It includes 24 chapters and over 100 answers for your most common gardening questions. It is thorough and comprehensive but does not get bogged down with too much scientific information for the recreational gardener. Spanning all four seasons, bulbs, container gardening, pesticides/chemicals, lawn, roses, shrubs, vines, watering, weeds, soil and composting are all included. This book can easily be read cover to cover or serve as a reference guide when there is a specific question. It is wonderful.

I would love to win that gardening book. I'm not a very good gardner and lots of my plants don't make it because I don't really know where to plant them, proper nutrition, and every day care. Would really enjoy this book!
Looks good. Can't wait for more. Alex Mossman firstname.lastname@example.org

Bugs yikes, bulbs that don't bloom. This book sounds like a good advice book to have in anyone's library.
You forgot to leave a way to contact you! How will I know who you are if you win?!
Oh, thank you for doing this giveaway! Maybe it's got the answer to why one of my tomato plant's leaves are curling.
I've been gardening for years…sometimes successfully, sometimes not. It's kind of a trial and error thing. Maybe this book would help 🙂

Oh me, I hope they have a good server over at GPS because I will probably blow something up with all of my gardening questions. HA! Seriously, I'm sure I'd love and get a lot of use from that book. Okay, excuse me while I go get all of my questions together….
I recently started a large garden since I purchased the vacant lot next door to my home. I need some help in learning how to efficiently plant this area & how to grow things I've never grown before.
I would love this book!!
Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Please contact me at email@example.com instead.
I think this book was written for me. My seedlings this spring didn't start thriving until I left town for a week. Too much attention CAN be a bad thing. Especially if you don't totally know what you are doing.
I would love to win this book! I have a nice collection of gardening books, but somehow I always have a question I can't seem to find the answer for. Thank you, Linda firstname.lastname@example.org
