Here's Amy's how-to turn in America's Sunday magazine, called "Get a Beautiful Garden Now". It's full of tips and myth-busters from two of our favorite hort profs – Jeff Gillman and Linda Chalker-Scott. Now let's discuss among ourselves.
– A gardening friend actually cornered me at the July 4th Parade to express her shock that the article recommends up to 6 inches of coarse mulch around vegetables, so I promised to ask about the research behind that one.
– Protecting young fruit from pests by stapling plastic bags or hosiery around each one is easy?
– And Amy, serious kudos to whoever's handling publicity for your book!
