New book from Linda Gilkeson... This is the sort of news that organic gardeners in BC should get excited about... Whether you're a novice gardener or a seasoned grower, there's lots of really practical, helpful insights in this book. And, like the WCS Growing Guide, it's regionally specific, so there's no guess work in adjusting the planting schedules... We see lots of new books come in, but this one deserves some attention, in my opinion.-- West Coast Seeds blog Are you itching to start your own garden or grow more in the one you have, but feel that gardening is too challenging or time-consuming for your busy schedule?
