Well known t.v. personality Frank Ferigini's book takes you through the gardening year. As a long time gardener, I found Frank's tips most helpful especially the one about remembering where your bulbs are planted. Great book for the novice or experienced gardener. Also check out our Seed Library at Cornell and Milliken Mills Libraries. You can get free seeds!
