A Starter Garden

a-starter-gardenA Starter Garden: The Guide for the Horticulturally Hapless” was written by Cheryl Merser in the early 1990’s documenting her first two years of beginning a new garden in Sag Harbor, New York.

This is a great book for those who are ready to “turn a yard into a garden,” as Mercer appropriately puts it. Mercer presents the three basic questions that each aspiring gardener should ask themselves before they even get their hands dirty – how much: time, effort and money can I put into this? She wisely advises “Become something of a garden pest yourself; immerse yourself in the world of gardening before you cultivate your own.”
