California Master Gardener Handbook (Second Edition)

Since 2002, the California Master Gardener Handbook has been the definitive source for practical advice for gardeners throughout the West. Now the much-anticipated second edition is here—completely redesigned, with updated tables, graphics, color photos throughout, and reorganization of information for better ease of use. Chapters cover soil, fertilizer, and water management, plant propagation, plant physiology; weeds and pests; home vegetable gardening; specific garden crops including grapes, berries temperate fruits and nuts, citrus, and avocados; woody landscape plants, and landscape design. Included is new information on invasive plants and principles of designing and maintaining landscapes for fire protection.
