Carolyn Singer's words take you into her garden to observe and learn. Enjoy your walk with her through gardens in all seasons! Past articles, greatly expanded, are now available in this book!

The Seasoned Gardener is written by an organic gardener with more than five decades of gardening experience. This detailed collection of gardening information is organized month-by-month, with a seasonal look at the changes in the garden and the rhythms of gardening. Each month has a list of activities, reminding gardeners to paint fruit trees to protect the bark, or to mulch to conserve moisture, with advice about the effects of each type of mulch and its timing.

Written for both beginning and experienced gardeners, the personal and conversational style of writing invites readers to enjoy the book, as well as to use it as a reference guide for edible and ornamental gardening. The book is fully indexed by subject. Another index of plants mentioned in the book is made easier to use by the glossary of common names.

Carolyn Singer gives practical garden information as a gardener, designer, teacher and writer who grew up with a gardening family in Sonoma County, California. She later added to her gardening experiences in Montana and Colorado before returning to garden in northern California. Carolyn has been gardening in the Sierra foothills (elevation 2600 feet) since 1977. She writes a regular garden column, The Seasoned Gardener, for The Union newspaper in Grass Valley CA.
