Jim Fox answers the key questions gardeners face on a visit to their local nursery.

An essential easy-to-read guide, packed with important information that would make an excellent gift choice for a beginning gardener, as well as saving a few veteran gardeners from making costly mistakes as they tend their gardens. "
