Bruce Weber once called her the "green-fingered queen." For more than twenty-five years C. Z. Guest has been coaxing readers into the garden and offering invaluable advice through her nationally syndicated weekly column Garden Talk. After noticing that readers had the same questions from one year to the next, she compiled all her answers and advice into an informative, easy-to-follow, and very practical gardening resource. This comprehensive and user-friendly volume helps gardeners plan for each season, plant and maintain their gardens, and overcome any gardening problems. Most important, it teaches the joy of gardening. "I have always thought that having a garden is like having a true and loyal friend," C. Z. says.

Organized by season and with a thorough index, the book will provide all the gardening information needed by either a novice or an expert, from when to plant bulbs to keeping your vegetable garden pest-free. As C. Z. says, other garden experts make everything complicated, but "that doesn't encourage anyone. No matter the audience, I keep things so simple that even a 6-year-old could grasp them."
