Liberating and exhilarating! You are a backyard gardener. You have always yearned for a carnation with fragrance, a habanero pepper with the flavour but not the heat, a zinnia in your favourite colours. Here's how to do it, and anything else you want to try to grow. Easy to read with tons of hints and places to connect with other backyard plant breeders. Great book!
